The Ogilvy Graduate Programme


The Ogilvy Graduate Programme (OGP) was established to find the best talent among final year creative and marketing students at four carefully selected tertiary institutions. Those we believe suit our needs and show potential for the kind of ground breaking ideas that can define the future of our industry, will be offered a job, kicking off with a six-month training and rotation programme and a full bursary for their final year of study.
