The role...

Are you a resourceful, switched-on and engaging person? Do you thrive in dealing with people? Do you want to work for a company who help thousands of students every year (like you) find work experience? 

As passionate believers and advocates of early talent, we are excited to be looking for a driven and creative student to undertake our Marketing Assistant placement scheme. Over the last 10 years we have learnt what makes an exceptional placement year; real responsibility, mentorship, the ability to make an impact, training, working with people at all levels, and of course doing all of that that alongside hard-working and inspiring people. 

Our successful student will join our Marketing team of 8 people at our office in the heart of Brixton. The work will be varied, the environment is welcoming and inclusive and your input will be truly valued. Amber Stansfield will be leaving big shoes to fill, but if you're up for the challenge we would love to receive your application!
