Your future starts here
When you join Forethought, you will be faced with opportunity – opportunity to learn, develop, excel, innovate and achieve. We want to help you to build a meaningful career, and will both challenge and support you to succeed.
From day one, your work will have purpose, and contribute to helping multinational brands solve their business challenges. No matter what your role, your work will land on the desks of our clients’ executives and play a critical role in informing their management action to drive growth.
Work with some of the most innovative methodologies available in the market, developed and patented by us. You will enjoy the trust, support and freedom to execute. You will collaborate with others who will bring alternate thinking and the achievement of something you will be proud of.
You will have access to some of the most progressive and ambitious brands locally and internationally, delivering valuable insights and solutions that will be seen and felt in industry. You will be keeping current with market trends, and also leading them.
We tap into your potential and explore your interests within our business. We will allow you to bloom and be challenged with clear pathways for progression that are aligned and tailored to you.
Forethought Graduate Program
2024 applications are now open!
The graduate program has been designed to challenge, transform and empower high-performing individuals like you. From day one, you will contribute to complex marketing and growth projects for our clients, solving brand, communications, product and customer experience challenges.
Graduate Bootcamp and Rotations
This is an intensive when you first join Forethought. We will cover topics such as practitioner skills, methodologies and setting you up for success; giving you opportunities to apply new skills along the way. You will then commence rotations across our departments.
Challenge, Challenge, Challenge
After rotations, you will be assigned to a team where you will be empowered to rise quickly. We will challenge you, support you and allow you to fail to learn. All we ask is that you seek to learn and enjoy the challenge. At the end of this year, you will have written many proposals, presented to clients and lead projects.
Work Life Harmony
Benefit from Forethought’s wellbeing program, which offers events and activities that include guest speakers, tools and resources, employee assistance, activities and importantly, social gatherings.
Learning & Development
We invest in helping you to be successful. With this comes opportunity, where your career can progress quickly. We offer individualised development programs, online learning and events such as Always Learning and Outcomes Uni.
Take paid parental leave as a mother, father or carer in addition to that provided by the government. Additional benefits include a paid car park, engagement while on leave and special events specifically for parents.
Take the opportunity to work across international projects with our offices based in Melbourne and New York.
Induction and Ally Program for all levels
Your onboarding experience is tailored to answer your questions before you have them. We connect you with an experienced colleague to help with anything else. This makes the transition into Forethought as seamless and enjoyable as possible.
We deliver many pro bono projects annually. While our focus is on homelessness and children, we are open to ideas about pro bono work that you have a passion for.
Diversity and Inclusion
At Forethought, we don’t just accept and encourage diversity — we celebrate it; recognising the value it brings to our clients and colleagues. Forethought strives for a work environment in which colleagues feel that they are valued, included and given recognition for their contribution to the firm’s success.
