The organisation provides a range of services to companies, from recruitment to employer training and mentoring programmes, working with over 500 creative companies including ITV, Apple, Sky, Aardman Animations and The National Theatre. As the organisation continues to grow, we are looking for a new trainee to join us for a 12 month internship within our supportive Digital and Impact team and working towards a Salesforce qualification.
