Integrated Media Internship

Your entry into the agency world

Are you looking for exposure to an award-winning global marketing communications agency working with some of the world’s most exciting brands? Are you ready to IGNITE your career? Weber’s IGNITE isn’t your average agency internship program. It’s a career-launching opportunity for anyone eager to play a role in solving today’s biggest communications challenges. It’s an immersive dive into our agency where you will do real work with real clients.

The Globe and Mail Building at 351 King St. W., Toronto, is homebase for our Toronto Team. At least, when we’re not working from home to social distance.

The Toronto office is empty, but it’s pretty great, and even better when we’re there together.

What is Weber Shandwick Canada’s ignite Internship Program?

IGNITE offers a fully curated, hands-on experience that’s designed to develop your skillset, provide invaluable insights and help you explore the many facets of our industry as you define – and invest in – your career path.

While our story is rooted in traditional PR, we’ve evolved into a fully integrated agency working with some of the biggest names in QSR, CPG, retail, healthcare, technology and financial services.

Across media relations, influencer relations, social strategy, corporate reputation, crisis management, public affairs, branding, editorial content, employee engagement, digital advertising, experiential events, analytics, social impact and more – our work, knowledge and people are as diverse as the ideas we present every day.

While we work hard each day to support our clients, we also believe in making time to take in the moment and celebrate with one another. We’ve been working remotely for the last year–we love a good cameo by our colleagues’ kids, moms or cats–but even when we’re apart we take the time to come together for social events, workshops, book clubs, trivia parties, movie nights, and more.

What’s your path?

Internship: Integrated Media

Ignite your career in media relations, influencer marketing, crisis communications, corporate reputation, social media community management, writing, and more.

What you’ll get from us

  • Experience
    You’ll be part of one or more account teams working on some of Canada’s (and the world’s) top brands. You won’t be watching from the sidelines, you will be IN the work.
  • Training and coaching
    You’ll kick off your experience with a series of trainings to introduce you to the core areas of our work, and then be invited to workshops and ongoing local and global trainings to keep you on the cutting edge of some of the most advanced thinking in the industry.
  • Mentorship
    You’ll be paired with a “People Champion” to ensure you get the most out of your experience and help guide your career.
  • Support
    You’ll get a buddy (who was also a recent IGNITE intern) dedicated to showing you the ropes and navigate the agency world, as well as access to a network of current and former interns to trade tips and share advice.
  • A paycheck!

Do we know who these people are? No, but pretty cool vibe, right?

We’re passionate about creating opportunities

Our mission is to become the industry’s most inclusive agency. We believe better work is created when we bring a variety of perspectives. And we are consistently building a stronger culture for ourselves and our colleagues when everyone can truly bring their authentic self to the workplace. This means actively questioning our biases, changing our habits and behaviors and affecting the systems in which we participate. We have also committed to leverage our power to help combat racism and advance change through partnerships and pro bono work with organizations that fight against racial inequality and injustice.
