A nationwide search for digital and creative apprentices, interns and start-ups

The Creative Pioneer Challenge has been launched to find the UK’s creative and digital media pioneers of the future. 300 opportunities of work in the form of internships and apprenticeships are being offered across 100 creative and digital media companies, as well as support for those with their own business ideas.

The Challenge has been developed by the IPA, the professional body for advertising, media and marketing communications agencies in the UK, leading urban media brand, Metro and Skillset, the Creative Industries’ Sector Skills Council.

Applications are invited in 3 catagories — Can-Do, Can-Code and Can-Start — each offering flexible, paid work opportunities or entrepreneurial start-up support appropriate to your ambition or abilities.

The deadline for applications is midday on Friday 27 April 2012, with apprenticeships and internships due to commence in September. Check out the Creative Pioneers website and read the excellent FAQs and What’s in it for me? pages for more details.
