Our aim is to improve diversity and offer young people an opportunity to learn, grow and gain experience within the creative industry. So, if you, or someone you know, is interested in joining our team… keep reading! We have 3 fantastic roles available; Studio Intern, Junior Artworker and Junior Copywriter.

About the Kickstart scheme

The Kickstart scheme provides funding to create new jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit who are at risk of long term unemployment. To support our journey, we’ve partnered with Create Jobs, one of London’s leading employability programmes and a certified Kickstart gateway.

Through Create Jobs, each Kickstarter will receive an enhanced experience. This includes induction, training, workshops and careers coaching, as a part of a network of young Londoners. They’ll also become part of the Create Jobs Community, accessing exclusive events, training, and mentoring opportunities.
