Make & Do seeks Yorkshire talent for first creative internship scheme


Full service content creation and automation studio Make & Do has launched its first ever internship scheme, open to all creatives age 18 and above.

The scheme, called Made & Do & You, is open to creatives (age 18 and above) looking to gain industry experience – from photography, videography, social content creation and motion to client services, art direction or even styling, regardless of their background or qualifications.

Make & Do talent search

On the hunt for bright new Yorkshire talent, Make & Do said it plans to nurture and grow the skill sets of three creatives at the start of their career, offering them the chance to experience the industry first hand.

This will be repeated over the next school and college break.

Chosen candidates will be provided with a brief to work on across four weeks, enabling them to build a portfolio of work they can then use to showcase their talents going forwards.

The project will give candidates an opportunity to create content for various comms channels including advertising, social, in-store and on-line.

There is a simple, two-step application process to follow. First of all candidates have until Friday 2 June to apply for the scheme via Instagram and will be asked to create original content about something that’s inspirational to them.

Applicants will then be shortlisted, with successful candidates invited to The Make & Do studio to meet with the team.

Three successful people will be selected for the placement!

Successful applicants for the scheme will be paid the Living Wage throughout their four-weeks training, with intention of potentially providing permanent jobs in the future.

Jenny Longsmith – Head of HR at Make & Do, said: We know Leeds is full of incredible talent but so many people don’t get the opportunity realise it. We’re expecting to find some future stars as part of this process….
