Once you’ve graduated from the Academy you will be introduced to your own high-performing teams development dashboard which is created for each individual in the agency. We will take time together to understand your strengths, and then how you will personally contribute to the success of the business. Your personal training and development programme will be delivered through the MC2 University of Life.

• Free gym membership

“I remember leaving that day and thinking even if I didn’t land the job in the end, I’ve still got a lot from this and I think I would have taken that to future interviews – but luckily I didn’t have to do that in the end.”- James, senior account manager, who joined our MC2 Experience Day in 2018.

“I would say that a really good way to sum up the team is that they are very together. It’s one of our values, and we really do live by it.” Natalie, head of content, who joined our MC2 Experience Day in 2016.

“I think development at MC2 is really personalised, so there isn’t a one size fits all approach. I think for me it was all about building confidence.” – Phoebe, senior account manager, who joined our MC2 Experience Day in 2019.
