Benefits of becoming a Creative Access media partner

Outreach

We market every internship opportunity to our database of thousands of BAME candidates.

In addition, we generate new candidates for each role through our extensive social media communities and to our partners, who include the UK’s leading colleges, universities and youth and arts organisations.

Recruitment

We review all applicants, conduct first round interviews and will provide each media partner with a shortlist of the top candidates for each role.

Training

We coordinate a training programme for all our interns, which includes pre-internship induction training, monthly masterclasses and a schedule of workplace-based training.

What are you expected to provide?

Training

You will need to develop a training schedule for each intern you take on (we can offer guidance and provide a template schedule).

You’ll also need to allow your intern time to attend their induction day and monthly evening masterclasses.

Financial contribution

You will need to commit to paying your intern a training allowance which equates to the London Living Wage.

We also ask for a voluntary contribution from media partners to help ensure sustainability.

Contract

Interns should be issued with a training contract that outlines the conditions of the internship.

We can provide template contracts.

Support

All media partners are expected to provide interns with a line manager, who they directly report to about their duties, and a senior-level mentor who can offer additional support and guidance, particularly around securing full time employment.
