3 areas of friction in
the employment journey

We make it easier for businesses to find fresh talent and visa versa!

Scope

Industry collaboration and graduate show attendance may differ depending on a university's advertising method and budget.

Connections between universities and businesses can be difficult to establish and commit to if they are too rigid.

Our Solution: The ability to establish partnerships across the whole of the UK in a way that is suitable for all parties.

Cost

Budget cuts have hit careers teams and graduate shows hard, leaving some students to organise and fund events themselves.

Pair this with the rise in unpaid internships, and the transition costs from education to industry become even higher.

Our Solution: All internship and job Ads posted on this site must be paid at least UK national minimum wage to ensure all candidates get equal access to opportunities.

Exposure

Most creative job sites are open to all experience levels meaning it is harder for students and graduates to stand out from the crowd.

Our Solution: A portfolio site which lets everybody's work speak for itself and removes biased or irrelevant filters. We make it easier for businesses to reach out to candidates who suit their team dynamic and client needs.

What are the benefits
of hosting paid internships?

The world is an expensive place and not everyone is blessed with financial support as they strive to start their creative career.

Paid interns are focused interns
The less time they spend worrying about how they are going to pay their next rent bill means the more time they can relax and focus on delivering great work for you and your clients.

Find your next permanent employee
Internships are a fantastic way to ‘try before you buy’ and invest in a new member of staff. You can assess how they fit with your current team and scrutinise their work ethic – all while avoiding hefty recruitment fees.

A better pool of candidates
Deciding not to fund your internship immediately cuts the number of passionate, creative, and hungry applicants who might apply. You need to ask yourself – Do I want the richest candidates or the best candidates?

Expand your services
Interns from multiple sectors can offer fresh perspectives and technology skills which could help to expand your current service offering.

Upskill your current team
Managing junior staff will upskill your existing team and prepare them for future management and acquisition roles.

Ultimately your company dynamic should reflect the diverse nature of the markets you are designing for in order to stay fresh and successful at what you do.
