TikTok for Business has announced the launch of the second year of its TikTok Agency Accelerator Program, as part of its commitment to fostering the development of talented professionals within the Australian media industry.
Designed to champion the growth of emerging leaders within the media agency sector, the program provides an opportunity to accelerate professional development whilst diving into topics that explore the intersection between culture and new age storytelling.
TikTok For Business is calling for media agency leaders with a recommended minimum of five years of experience to self-enter or nominate a team member for a chance to secure a spot within the fully-funded program. 30 entrants will be selected to participate in the TikTok Agency Accelerator Program, with the winners to be announced in mid-April and the sessions commencing from May 2023.
Andrew Cambridge, head of agency, TikTok Australia & New Zealand, said: “After a highly successful inaugural program in 2022, we’re excited to be opening the program up to a new cohort of emerging agency leaders. We were blown away by the calibre of entries last year and look forward to nurturing the development of more Australian media superstars in 2023.”
Participants of the TikTok Agency Accelerator Program will be given the opportunity to participate in four interactive sessions that will be held both virtually and in-person across New South Wales and Victoria.
Additionally, the program will culminate in a three-day residency, with the ambition of further up-skilling the next generation of media industry professionals via captivating commentary and insights into the ever evolving ad space.
Sarah Kramer, 2022 Agency Accelerator alumni and communications planning director at CHEP, added: “If you get the opportunity to experience the TikTok Accelerator program, you are in for a treat – it is honestly one of the best programs on the market by far. It truly is career defining and the attention that TikTok put into both professional growth and personal development has had a huge impact on all of us who were part of the 2022 program.”
