I’m currently at a WPP agency and want to relocate to another city. My agency doesn’t have another office in that city, but another WPP agency does. What’s the process for applying to a different WPP?

WPP has a 10% raise limit if you change agencies

I went from one WPP agency to another [same city] and my salary was matched (lateral move). Ironically, the new one wanted to pay me less because their salary scale was lower. Was transparent and it was an amicable transition - everyone played nicely in the sandbox. helped on my old clients for a few weeks from the new agency.

I think we do this to ourselves in advertising. There is no reason not to be transparent. Its not like your going to a competitor across town.

Process is for you to declare yourself as interested in another job at another WPP agency .. WPP HR then helps

like

the fact that you’ve heard conflicting things from people who all work(ed) at WPP agencies speaks to the disconnect between how it’s supposed to work and how it actually works. I think it also speaks to the lack of connectedness in the “network”

like

Have a look on inside wpp intranet. There’s loads of info about moving within the group. Due to poaching guidelines, you have to tell your current agency. In most cases if you try and apply without telling them, you’ll get told you can’t proceed until you do. There is a 10% cap and they will have access to your existing salary but depends on your relationship with your current agency and what level you are, they can get approval for more

WPP employee above is right. I’ve been at 3 wpp agencies and moved between them

The raise limit is in regards to a lateral move and not a promotion, correct?

I’m particularly concerned about my current agency being alerted if I apply to another WPP agency, and what compensation will look like since my new place would have access to my old salary through WPP. Would that be the case?

After first conversation, if you have in-person interviews, you’ll have to alert your current company and get “permission”.

I worked at a wpp agency 10 years ago and at the time my manager told me I had better chances to just apply / resign on my own than get a transfer. It was a long time ago and probably changed, if you can trust the HR team have an honest conversation with them.

Talk to your supervisor or HR manager. If there's interest, they'll connect you. Your office has to approve the transfer from WPP to WPP, so unfortunately there is no way to do it without alerting them.

10% raise limit and inform hr or your supervisor .

I was held back from being able to transfer
