Careers in the Creative Space - Express interest in the SEO Creative Access Programme NOW!
SEO is delighted to be working with a new charity, Creative Access, established in 2012 to provide opportunites for paid internships in the creative industries for young people from under-represented black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. The industries covered include FILM, ADVERTISING, PERFORMING ARTS, PUBLISHING, JOURNALISM, TV and RADIO. The scheme is being sponsored by the CEOs of many of the UK’s leaders in these fields (including ITV, Channel 4, Wall to Wall, HarperCollins, All3Media, Studio Lambert, Shine, Fresh One, Somethin' Else, Two Four Media, Juniper TV, Mentorn etc) and will offer more than 300 internships / graduate roles in 2012-13.
Expressing interest in the programme (a simple 2 step process provided below that should take no more than 5 minutes to complete), will give you access to:
1) More than 300 internships / graduate roles in the creative industries in 2012 - 2013. If you are selected for interviews with Creative Access partners, SEO will provide you with detailed preparation including mock interviews.
2) Networking and information sessions covering all of the creative industries detailed above to better educate you about the realities of working in these industries. Career advice will be provided by many of the leading names in these industries, many of whom are from ethnic minority backgrounds.
All students that secure a position through Creative Access will additionally be provided with a senior creative industry mentor as well as a comprehensive training programme to ensure you can impress.
