Invitation for creative businesses to join the Bristol Creative Industries Internship Programme

15th August 2023

The Bristol Creative Industries Internship Programme, in partnership with Babbasa as part of the OurCity2030 initiative, is a stellar example of how BCI members can come together to fund and deliver a complex programme of internships and training to support some of the region’s most 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.
