We Are Social wanted to create a pipeline for diverse young talent, opening up their agency to a wider pool of young people and bringing a diversity of creative thought into their agency.
Of our most driven programme graduates attended the launch event at We Are Social
Talented young people from our network applied to Upstarts
Brilliant CMN alumni got a place on the programme
We met with the We Are Social culture team to understand what their internship process had been to date, why it wasn’t working for them, and who they wanted to reach.
We worked with the We Are Social team to plan a more democratic, video application process, and promoted the launch day at We Are Social HQ. Then we went out to our network to find the people we thought would be a great fit for the opportunity, and organised a series of workshops to support young people with their applications.
We Are Upstarts is 6 week, paid internship programme.
A creative placement with a difference, open to those with a curious mind and something to say. It's a chance to make a name and career for yourself at We Are Social.
After graduating from our mentoring programme, Althea got a place on the Upstarts programme.
We encourages Althea to apply to Upstarts because we knew she would be a great fit!
