Internal mobility is not just an aspiration at WPP; it’s happening across the business, supported by Career Explorer, a platform which showcases open roles across the network

Investing in our people is key to our success. It’s why we’ve put bold initiatives in place to attract, engage and develop the best in the industry.

And it’s why we launched Career Explorer – WPP’s company-wide online jobs platform – supported by a new internal mobility policy, to unlock access to growth opportunities for all our people across our award-winning agencies. So that everyone can thrive and deliver their best work, wherever that might be in the network.

One such example of successful internal mobility at WPP is Keka Morelle. She was named regional Chief Creative Officer for Ogilvy Latina last year, having previously served as the Chief Creative Officer of Wunderman Thompson Brazil (now VML) since 2019.

Keka is one of the most renowned and award-winning creatives in Latin America. She pointed out that this transition is a significant recognition of her achievements in her previous role.

“I'm immensely grateful for the support of the WT leadership team. My heartfelt thanks go out to my peers, clients, and the outstanding WT Brazil team,” she said.

Wunderman Thompson (now VML), commented: “Keka taking on a larger role within the WPP family is a testament not only to her leadership, but also the great work our team has done at Wunderman Thompson Brazil. We look forward to seeing her continued success as she takes this next step in her career with WPP.”

Keka’s work has been honoured at numerous award shows, including One show, D&AD, Clio and Cannes Lions Festival, where she has served as Cannes Lions juror three times.

Heightened functionality

Since its inception in 2021, WPP’s internal mobility process has been through continuous improvement to make the experience for WPP people:

  • Transparent – providing clear visibility of open roles and eligibility;
  • Straightforward – sharing step-by-step guidance that’s easy to follow;
  • Frictionless – removing any barriers throughout the transition; and
  • Seamless – offering support and encouragement along the way.

As a result, everyone has access to countless places they can grow. This tool ensures that WPP people can unleash their full potential at every stage of their career. This includes providing opportunities for professional growth across WPP agency brands and global network.
