Your early career in the Creative, Media and Tech industries
We believe there is a giant and exciting pool of talent out there who deserve to feel they have a chance of breaking into these industries. Industries that can often feel closed off to anyone outside of the perceived, expected talent pool. It’s about giving under-represented talent the chance to shine and to feel supported into careers within Creative, Media and Tech.
Broadening the talent pool will bring a fresh perspective, unique ideas and better results for those employers ready to think outside the box and to try new approaches when attracting diverse talent. For example, for too many years, employers have ONLY looked to universities when recruiting those looking for their early years career break. There is so much untapped talent out there, employers need to look beyond a CV, qualifications, work experience (often only found by ‘who you know’) and to open up opportunities.
Notable companies that help make the journey
For many years there has been a complacency and a refusal to look beyond the ‘obvious’. We have to delve deeper to recognise and celebrate talent and to support them throughout their early years journey. There are many forward thinking companies and organisations committed to looking deeper.
The amazing Brixton Finishing School does some fantastic work, and many of our clients have teams purely looking after their early careers workforce, offering apprenticeships and many host open days to give a real taste of what life is like. Check out the amazing Gemma Appleford at Mediabrands UK and Open House provided by M&C Saatchi, a free online training programme open to anyone.
As a small, adaptable and personalised agency we know how to embed ourselves with our candidates and clients, we know that we must take the time to talk, to REALLY know people, to understand their story, every situation is different, there is no one size fits all and all the doors should be open for EVERYONE.
You can view our live jobs to see the media jobs that we’re currently recruiting for and easily apply online! If there isn’t a live role available that matches what you’re looking for, it’s still worth sending your CV over and having a chat with our team as we frequently add new jobs.
