These people won't be working there.
The good people from Work Club have been in touch - they're offering internships in account management, to start ASAP.
Below is the blurb. Good luck, gang:
"We're looking for people to start from around the end of January for three month internships in Account Management.
We want people who are self starting, creative, sharp and interesting.
If you're a Campaign/Marketing reader, you'll be aware that we won digital dark horse of the year and Agency of the year. These internships are a fantastic opportunity and a great place for a graduate to come into.
We have several hires who started here as interns and have been offered full time positions off the back of it.
Please email hello at work-club.com if you're interested."
UPDATE (6th February): They have closed their applications now, and those people who've been lucky enough to get an interview will be contacted this week.
Best of luck, all.

Not like this.
Two updates in a week - I'm trying to fulfil my New Year's resolution of updating AdGrads more frequently, y'see.

Hopefully the rainbow brought on by a job will be less painful..
Sorry for the tremendously slow updates; a combination of Christmas and a very busy run up to the festive period left me sidelining AdGrads a tad. But no longer.
There are three opportunities to tell you about:
Publicis are running a graduate scheme that closes on the 22nd of January at 8pm. You can find out more here. You need to send the application form and your CV to gradteam at publicis.co.uk.
Their blurb is below:
"Publicis London is looking for the most promising new grads to join our account management team. Successful applicants from the interview stage will be invited to the ADcademy: an intensive 4 day introduction to the ad industry taking place at 82 Baker Street. Here, you will glean insight from some of the best people in the business and learn what the job is all about, including pitching your idea to a real-life client.Following the ADcademy in April, some lucky grads will be offered places on the year long grad scheme to start in October 2012.
Saatchi's graduate page can be found here. Its Facebook page is here. It has yet to announce dates, but given the launch of the page/the relatively closed nature (you have to ask to be invited to the FB page) of the FB page in order to apply, you should sign up sooner rather than later. As soon as anyone knows the dates, please email me at william dot humphrey at yahoo.co.uk. UPDATE: I've been told this launches on the 19th of January, and anyone who asks can be a member of the FB group.
A few grads have alerted me to Fallon's internships. You can find out more here. In short, you can apply for a paid 3 month internship in account management or planning, or a month's creative placement by emailing myfuture at fallon.co.uk. Planning internships are particularly thin on the ground, so you could definitely apply if Planning's something you might be interested in.
Good luck with those 3, all. I hope to post more regularly in the next few months.
