Luke Chaplin Account Director

The Table is a brilliant way of getting people from all backgrounds into the advertising industry. The fact you don’t need a degree to apply is what makes the Table really unique and means that it’s one of the most accessible schemes in the industry. 
 
I’m currently an Account Director, having started on the Table in 2019 nearly 5 years ago. The Table was a brilliant introduction into how an agency works, with the first few weeks of inductions and training setting me up with a good set of skills to take into the rest of the year. It was a great way to meet people from different departments in the agency which has been a massive part in my career progression. 

Izi Hutchinson Senior Account Director and Deputy Head of The Table

A lovely full circle, I am now deputy lead of The Table scheme (after starting on it 9 years ago) and a Senior Account Director in VCCP London. I work on The National Lottery – which I love – but I have also worked across easyJet, McLaren, Nationwide and Maynard Bassetts. Safe to say, no day is the same here at VCCP and on the Table!

Having the foundations of the training, the networking and the inductions from The Table has been a huge influence as to where I am today. It really did kick-start my career in the best way possible and prepared me for all the future challenges to come. Being part of the scheme has also made my role on the core Table team now so helpful as I do really understand what it is like to start here at VCCP with no experience whatsoever.
