WPP is a creative transformation company that uses the power of creativity to build better futures for our people, clients and communities.

Sounds cool, right? But you probably still have no idea what we do. Though our industry is exciting, impactful, and has global reach, we know sometimes it can seem complex.

We work with clients all over the world like Wendy’s, Pfizer, Nike, Netflix, and many more and partner with the likes of TikTok, Amazon, Google, and Facebook to help them solve problems through communications, experience, commerce, and technology.

At WPP, we are united by a culture of collaboration that is open, optimistic, and creates extraordinary work. That means that we welcome talent from all walks of life; whether you are a creative, love numbers, are studying healthcare, are witty with your words on social media, catch cultural trends before they even happen, are the planner within your circle of friends or simply are curious about what we do.
