This week, Four bgb welcomes Ralph Turner, who joins the team as a graduate trainee account executive with Four’s 2013 graduate trainee programme.
Four’s rigorous graduate recruitment process has over recent years attracted hundreds of applications, with around 25 shortlisted candidates invited to an intensive assessment day at the London offices. Candidates are put through their paces in a series of sessions including everything from pitching, presentations and interviews, to writing tests, research projects, and even a little improvising! This is the third year that Four bgb has selected a graduate to join its ranks and the team looks forward to welcoming Ralph, who will join previous graduate trainees, account executive Emma Liasides from 2012’s intake, and senior account executive Carolyn Van Vliet, from the 2011 graduate scheme.
Ralph will work across clients including One&Only and Discover Ferries and take part in Four bgb’s ongoing training programme for staff, with team experts holding sessions on everything from crisis communications to the latest social media trends. Past graduates at Four have gone on to become heads of practice and associate directors, and Four bgb looks forward to welcoming new talent and fresh creativity to its committed team.
The graduate recruitment programme for 2014 will open later on in the year, with details posted on www.fourcommunications.com.
