INTERN GOES INTERNATIONAL

09/05/2012


We know that sometimes internships can get a bad name. We have spent the last four years developing a programme that gives genuine experience, real life situations and comprehensive evaluation and feedback for our student helpers. We value the fresh skills, ideas and enthusiasm our interns bring, and we’ve had hundreds of inspiring interns through our doors some of whom have gone on to play key roles in the agency. Our current intern Rory Birch is the perfect example of how proper programmes can smash dated media stereotypes.

Rory joined our team back in March as a Production Intern to learn more about the world of live event production. His office role was to shadow the exec team, liaise with suppliers and assist with booking low level event logistics. We also gave him a minor role on the mighty Snowbombing Festival that takes place up a mountain in Austria. Then, as part of our innovative internship package we gave Rory the opportunity to experience working in Alpine air. He played a vital and varied role, which had him working in unique snow filled environments and interacting with impressive brand partners such as Motorola and Eristoff.

Rory’s experience pre, post and during the festival has left him thoroughly warmed up and ready to crack on with his next chapter at Ear to the Ground…which will without a doubt strive to inspire his future career.
