We have places available for interns to join our successful team on our “Splendid Futures” programme. Our paid internships will provide the successful applicants with the opportunity to work on some of the world’s most iconic brands as well as getting “real-life” experience in one of London’s most respected communications agencies.
This unique opportunity will provide you with the opportunity to work across clients in the drink, food, lifestyle and culture industries, so we are looking for a candidate who shows genuine passion and flair to work across these sectors.
Working as one of the team, taking part in brainstorming ideas, through planning and scheduling through to approval and delivery to clients, we provide a structured induction process to ensure we give you exposure to every aspect of the role. By the end of the first month we will expect you to be confident in presenting ideas to your team, in finding solutions to challenges, drafting copy for client communications, and selling in to the media.
Real-life office experience is also an important part of your internship; learning how to use timesheets, file documents, running around town making deliveries, reading/scanning papers and learning to set up a meeting are helpful tools, as much as mixing with management and sharing innovative ideas at Splendid Loves on a Friday afternoon.
You will be assigned a mentor who will review your progress via bi-weekly catch-ups and monthly reviews, providing you with constructive feedback and setting goals for the coming weeks. We commit to managing you and your development to ensure you get the best out of your Splendid experience.
We are proud that 25% of our team started at Splendid as Interns, and see this as an important introduction to the agency for you, for the agency and for our industry.
We are looking for graduates with some exposure to the PR world or a similar environment, whether this is from previous internships or work experience or as a year in industry and could include media relations, events or being a runner in an agency, we're keen to hear about your experience.
This role is based in London and the salary is £16,500 pro-rated for the initial 3-month contract.
Most of our interns have been successful in securing a permanent role with Splendid after the initial contract, so we do not consider applications from candidates still studying or unable to commit on a permanent basis.
