How do I apply for a job at Wieden + Kennedy?

If you fancy working at W+K there are a handful of prerequisites:
  • Whatever department you want to work in, you need to be a creative person.
  • You need to be passionate about what you do.
  • You need to be hard-working.
  • And you probably need a sense of humour. (Optional but trust us, it will help).

We ask that everyone write us a one page only letter along with their CV or portfolio.

The letter should briefly cover the following:
  • Why you want to work at W+K.
  • Why you want to fill a particular role and the one thing special or different that only you can bring to W+K.
  • The three things that you are most passionate about.
  • A moment in your life when you embraced failure.
  • A time when you broke the rules for the greater good.
  • Remember to keep everything to one page, and do not send anything over 2MB; it clogs up our system and makes us sad.

Please send applications by email to

You can also send an application by post to:

Unfortunately we can only reply to those lovely people who take the time and effort to follow the guidelines above.

Good luck to one and all!


Please do:

Check your spelling and grammar; keep your letter short and to the point; know which department or role you want to work in; check the spelling of the name of the person to whom you are writing; try to be a bit different; know that everyone responds to a bribe in the form of chocolate, always.

Please don't:

Put the wrong agency name on your application; call someone Mrs/Miss or Mr without checking whether they are male or female; be rude or use lots of bad language - it’s not big or clever; use pictures that are inappropriate; be so different that the craziness goes off the dial; be afraid to be honest.
