STEP – A New Direction's Shared Training and Employment Programme - is back this 2022 and we’re on the lookout for 10 young East Londoners with creative new ideas, energy, and perspectives who will be matched with committed local businesses to experience an entry-level role in the creative or cultural sector.
Through STEP, you’ll get paid a London Living Wage or above salary over a 12-month training programme where you'll develop a range of skills and creative approaches. Get your foot in the creative industry's door, grow as part of a like-minded peer network, take part in monthly professional development workshops, and get a budget to boost your portfolio with a collaborative creative project.
We’ll also connect you with a specialist industry mentor, provide career coaching and continue to offer support as part of our creative community after the programme.
This year we are offering up to 10 placements in sectors including Marketing / PR, Museums & Galleries, Fashion & Design, and Charities.
How To Apply
Applications close at 10 am on Monday 17 October 2022.
If your application is successful, you’ll need to be available for an online group interview day on Tuesday, 25 October, where you'll take part in a collaborative group task, meet the team 1:1 and have a chance to ask any questions. Please note that we are unable to offer alternative group interview dates.
