Welcoming over 80 interns to our creative Cardiff HQ over the years, the S3 Academy internship programme has helped springboard the careers of creatives, media planners, production pros, social media stars, designers, digital whizzes, and project managers across the industry.
In fact, 11 graduates of the S3 Academy have been offered full time roles at our advertising agency on the back of stand out performances on the scheme.
Now, after a year’s hiatus, the paid internship programme is back and ready to welcome a handful of the industry’s next big things into our new home in Cardiff’s Wyndham Arcade. They’ll work closely with S3’s expert team and enjoy invaluable, on-the-job experience of life in a busy ad agency.
And this time our Academy interns will work up close with our client projects, supporting on campaigns created for the likes of Clogau jewellery, the National Farmer’s Union, make-up brand Vulcan and Vixen and Starling Bank.
Long-time S3-ers Steff Mitchell and Ben Horder (L-R) started out on the S3 Academy – now they’re driving key creative productions for our clients. Here they are just as they’d been offered full-time roles back in 2015. (We are LOVING the baby faces. <3)
So, if you’re interested in a career in advertising and marketing and ready to take your first step to biting big in our industry, listen up. The S3 Academy is your ticket to becoming a future digital expert, PR/social guru, creative director or media pro.
We’re open to applications from interns interested in any of S3’s nine service departments: Strategy, Creative, Design, Production (covering content creation, motion graphics, production management & more), Media Planning and Buying, Digital Advertising, PR, Social Media, Account & Project Management.
We’re looking for a team of interns to join us for a summer stint:
Our best interns live and breathe biting big. They are bold, ambitious, unpretentious and slightly obsessive about learning and improving.
The four-week programme will give candidates real life experience of working on a brief, from ideation to pitching. You’ll also have the opportunity to work closely with and absorb as much knowledge as possible from our in-house experts!
S3 Social Content Executive, Lauren Dutson (pictured right) started on the S3 Academy and has now worked for the agency for two years on campaigns for clients like Vulcan and Vixen and Visit Mid Wales.
