We were thrilled to join Advertising Council Australia’s JumpStart program for the first time this year.
The program offers tertiary graduates a unique opportunity to meet with some of Perth’s top agencies and provides an insight into all possible job roles and career paths within advertising, digital and media. Each week, students attended a workshop at a different agency, learning practical skills that they can take with them into their career.
Bonfire’s Head of SEO Matt Elshaw, Head of Data & Innovation Sam Gabell, Marketing Manager Hayley Boneham, and Account Director Jonette Brooking gave the students valuable insight into digital marketing and discussed the varied opportunities at Bonfire.
The 9 week program came to a close with final pitch presentations with Glenn Donaldson, Senior Manager Marketing and Sales at Lotterywest, playing the role of the client for the students to do their pitch presentations to.
Donaldson joined a panel of industry-leading judges to determine the winning group, including our very own Hayley Boneham.
Congratulations the winning group of students – Atle Edgar, Garreth Bennett, Macushla Quicke, Kate Fogarty and Stefan D’Angelo.
JumpStart also recognises individual achievement. This year, first place went to Cameron Patterson who also scored a job as Bonfire’s Digital Account Coordinator.
