Do you want to be an account exec at W+K London?

Well do you?

Time was when you couldn’t get a job in adverts unless your dad was a senior account man or creative and even then you had to start in the post room. More recently, in London at least, you’ve needed a posh degree to add to the qualifications gained at your posh public school (and they call this progress).

No such nonsense from Wieden+Kennedy London. But if you want to join the uber-cool crew in Shoreditch it has six questions (on the agency blog, don’t send the answers to us) to ask you.

Refreshing or what? Actually we reckon MD Neil Christie, a canny Scot, may be saving headhunter fees, having just spent all that money sending new biz director Alex Rogers to Cannes.
