As a business, Northern Media are always keen to work with young people and encourage skill development in all areas of marketing. In addition to our full-time staff, Northern Media currently have an Apprentice Web Developer as well as a part time Junior Designer and Graphic Design Intern.
This opportunity allows young people to gain real-world experience of working within an agency, providing them with a much greater insight in to the sector.
During February, the team expanded even further, for just one week only, as we welcomed a placement student who had the chance to experience life at Northern Media first-hand.
As our client base is so wide and we have employees specialising in different areas of marketing, our placement students are graced with the opportunity to explore multiple avenues.
In the case of our most recent placement student, he was interested in developing his knowledge of graphic design yet was also looking to study media and film at university, so being able to apply this to his work experience was ideal.
Linford, our placement student, was able to design anniversary logos for an existing company, shadow our Graphic Designer, design and collate ideas for collateral and work on the overall marketing for Northern Media, helping to create a more refined plan for the videographer when filming our ‘About Us’ and testimonial videos.
