Welcome to the S4 Capital Fellowship Program

Offering full time employment in the USA in 2021/2

Designed to be a journey worth taking - for graduates from HBCUs. We are pleased to confirm our first Fellows commenced their full-time employment on March 1, 2021, for positions based in the United States. Learn more about our three new Fellows in the blog post attached below.

We will reopen applications for 2022 in September 2021. We encourage you to stay one step ahead and prepare your application now.

The S4Capital Fellowship program is designed to deliver a comprehensive blend of meaningful work experiences, mentorship, apprenticeships with our most senior global leaders, formal learning and support for self-directed study, client secondments and, within the four-year program, opportunities to work in other countries once travel becomes possible. We wanted to make sure we got things right for our inaugural 2021 Program and opted to launch with an initial group of three. Our number of accepted Fellows will increase significantly with each subsequent year’s intake.

The Fellowship is a four-year, immersive, accelerator program. It is planned around two, two-year slots: one within our content practice, and another within our data practice, both based primarily in the US. Opportunities to work overseas will be included when travel allows, as well as apprenticeship with one of our eight global leaders. Fellows have the opportunity to work at one of our clients on a live assignment.

The S4Capital Fellowship provides a secure platform and scope to grow. Our company is evolving fast, and we expect the same from our Fellows. We’re in this together, and will learn from each other. Each role and responsibility is designed so Fellows can contribute directly to the company’s success, which is contingent on their own success.

Working on the practicalities of digital advertising and marketing, Fellows will gain a fundamental understanding of everything we do first-hand. This includes how data and analytics inform better content, and how we use programmatic to plan and buy advertising to make it effective for our clients in technology, FMCG, pharmaceutical, services and many more – all as part of their planned career development.

Our hope and intent is to challenge assumptions, and for people to experience how great the Fellows are through their presence and the value they bring. Their diverse backgrounds and perspectives are critical components to building a more truthful reflection of our communities. And, importantly, we hope that it’s not only our Fellows who get to experience the true meaning of inclusion.

This program is also good business and will make us more effective in terms of what we do.

Application Introduction

Our industry is all about the art and science of how brands communicate with everyone who has a stake in a brand’s performance. Those who do well and enjoy working in our business have a passion for building brands and creating communications that work.

Our application process takes a different approach to many. Ours is not simply a set of hurdles for you to jump over. Your qualifications and achievements do matter but, more importantly, we have designed the application process for you to get to know us at the same time that we get to know you. We know we’ve found a good candidate when their application feels like we are having a stimulating conversation with an interesting (and interested) person.

The process will take time, but not be a waste of time. We want you to be stimulated by it. We encourage you to be yourself; go beyond providing essential personal data and information (everyone will do that). Use the questions that ask for your opinions to express who you are with originality. We encourage you to share a point of view and tell us what you think and make us want to get to know you more.

And one final point, our application is also designed to help you build confidence for what you want to achieve, and how to communicate this to prospective employers. We hope you will enjoy doing this as much as we look forward to hearing from you.
