Creative Access places 900th BAME intern at TATE
Creative Access is thrilled to announce that it has placed its 900th trainee.
Intern number 900 is Esra Unal who recently started her role as Digital Marketing Intern at Tate. Esra grew up in London attending a state school. She was the first generation in her family to attend University, joining Queen Mary in London to study English. Commenting on her internship so far, Esra said:
“I’m absolutely loving my time at Tate! I work with such a great team who are always so kind and helpful and make sure I get as much as I can out of this opportunity.
I’ve always wanted to work at a gallery and this internship has offered me invaluable experience. I definitely would not have been able to do it without Creative Access!’
Lindsay O’Leary, Digital Marketing Manager at TATE said: “Esra has been an exemplar employee; one of the most dedicated, thoughtful and kind co-workers I’ve ever had the pleasure of working alongside. She is going to go very far in life. My thanks to you, Creative Access, for matching us with such an incredible employee. Already, Esra’s work at Tate has reached millions of people across the globe via social media.
I know you must be a small team, but please know how massive your impact is: for the interns, for the employees, for the UK and for the world.”
