The Mackay Programme

Owing to the Covid-19 outbreak, the 2020 Mackay Programme has been postponed until later in the year.

Are you in communications, public affairs or healthcare?

Are you looking to breakthrough in your career and work in a sector that helps to change the lives of millions for the better?

The Mackay Programme is dedicated to one of Hanover’s founders, Gregor Mackay, who died in 2005 eight weeks after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Mackay personified an “uncommon sense” approach and took particular interest in the development of people and teams.

Hanover is an equal opportunities employer, committed to encouraging a balanced workforce within our company and the wider industry.
