WCRS is a creative agency. We make work people care about, across all channels.
Let’s face it, people have far better things to be doing these days than watching adverts, so it’s never been more important to create work people care about. Whether it’s ads, music, TV programs, games, apps, or gadgets, we want to create stuff that makes people feel something. That gets them thinking and talking.
Let’s break it down.
The Big Break is your opportunity to get a unique insight into the ad industry, at one of the UK’s top agencies. Over the 3 months you’ll see how things are done and get hands-on experience in Account Management, Strategy, and Project Management.
Account Management Charlie & Phoebe

Will I have a guaranteed job at the end? The Big Break is primarily an internship programme for three months. Many former Big Breakers have stayed with us afterwards, but it depends on what roles are available and if they’re right for you.
