The Bright Young Things

The Bright Young Things internship scheme offers four-month placements within four practice areas.

Our interns will have line managers who will work with them to ensure they have strong objectives, they will have a structured training programme, and extensive on-the-job learning.

On successful completion of the scheme, their achievements will be celebrated with a graduation ceremony.

Interns will leave with an excellent foundation in communications and will be first in line for any permanent positions available. This programme is not exclusively for graduates or undergraduates, but is an inclusive initiative to enable us to find the brightest new talent out there.

The next scheme dates run from 1st May 2017 to 1st September 2017.

Application

We know that bright people come from different places and have experienced different things. We are very deliberately drawing on a far more diverse talent pool with our BYT recruitment; this is not a graduate-only programme.

We want to see your CV but we also want to know about you as a person. We would like you to produce a ‘press release’ of yourself to ‘sell in’ to us. Tell us what makes you tick and what ticks you off! Remember your audience, what do they want to hear, what do they need to know? What is the key message? This should be no more than 200 words.

You MUST have the right to work in the UK

Applications for our January intake are now closed. Applications for our May 2017 intake will open in February.
