MFA Support is a program to support media agency professionals who have lost their job due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our goal is to retain valued talent in the industry by ensuring that you remain connected. Ex-employees of MFA member agencies are eligible to join the program.
There are 3 components to the program:
Our goal is to ensure you hear about relevant roles quickly. When you join the MFA Support program Talent Directory, you will be sent relevant industry role opportunities when they become available.
You can also access role opportunities on the MFA Careers Job Board
We are keen for you to continue to build your knowledge and skills while you look for a new role in the industry. For the remainder of 2020, you will be able to access the MFA People programs at no cost.
To participate in any of these programs, register for MFA Support and select the relevant programs for you.
Additional tailored and industry training opportunities will be made available – details to be advised.
