MOLLY HERON

Where are you now?
I am currently in my 3rd rotation in the Influence department. I have previously completed rotations in PR and Advertising.

What do you do day-to-day that excites you?
I get to work in a fast based environment and witness my work come to life as campaigns go live. I love that no day is the same as I work with a wide range of clients across different industries and markets. I also love working with a team of brilliant people who are passionate about the work they are creating.

One thing everyone should know about the role/pipe programme?
There is no such thing as a silly question! Time goes so quickly in your rotations so try and talk to as many people as possible to understand more about the department. There is always so much going on at Ogilvy so try and say yes and get involved in as much as possible.

MOSES RATHBONE

Where are you now?
I am mid-way through my second rotation in the Pipe. I spent the first six months working in the Consultancy team. I researched different brands, business models, industries and consumers and used the research to derive different brand strategies. I was even lucky enough to work with the US team (albeit remotely). I am now in the Strategy department on ‘Team Red’ helping with the big-picture thinking behind Vodafone’s advertising campaigns.

What do you do day-to-day that excites you?
I get to read and watch A LOT of different adverts. I like talking to the creatives and watching how the team’s strategic thought gets turned into an actual ad. It was super fun to see one of my pieces of work pop up as a paid ad on Instagram the other day.
