The OurCity2030 Pathway into Creative & Tech, in partnership with the Bristol Creative Industries Internship Programme, is an innovative example of how creative businesses can come together to offer internships to the city’s underrepresented young people. 

After a successful pilot over the past few months with 14 brilliant agencies, we are now looking for more creative businesses to join our mission.

They will support the second cohort of interns during the next phase of this innovative project in 2024.

How it works

Agencies pay a one-off fee which covers:

✅ Onboarding to the programme including guidance and templates around internship structure/workplan.

✅ ED&I, mental health and neurodiversity training with a focus on working with young people from underrepresented groups.

✅ HR support and mentoring from Bristol Creative Industries’ dedicated internship programme manager Clare Leczycki.

✅ Recruitment and employment of two interns over six months.

If you are interested in taking part, email Bristol Creative Industries membership manager Alli Nicholas on by 15 September.
