Internships 

We offer two 6 month internships each year designed for those who have no previous experience either in talent management or related fields.  These internships give the successful candidates the opportunity to experience life in an agency and a chance to develop skills and relationships within that arena.

We also offer a year-long internship in the role of office runner, which we advertise as and when the position is available.  Offering general support to the company as a whole, this is a role where no week is ever the same – you could be running packages one minute to providing holiday cover on a busy Assistant’s desk the next.

Both are paid positions, on a salary which is commensurate with other entry-level jobs in the industry.

Because the number of applications we receive far outweighs the number of places, we are only able to accept them during a specific period of recruitment, which is advertised here, on Creative Access and the PMA website. We are unable to predict when that will be as often our interns secure permanent positions before the end of their contract. Please do not submit CVs outside of that time, as they will not be considered.

 

Work Experience 

We no longer offer ad hoc work experience placements, instead focusing on our Intern Scheme, detailed above.

We do not accept applications or enquiries by telephone or requests for feedback.
