SUMMER STARS>> INTRO | APPLY | HOST | LECTURES | ATTEND A LECTURE


The Taylor Bennett Foundation’s work is only possible because of the support of numerous companies and individuals working in the PR, communication and media sectors, and beyond.

Thanks to our Summer Stars work placement programme, which launched in 2018, reached more BAME school leavers, students and graduates. In 2018 we had 34 internships with 29 companies. This year we hope to build on the success of the programme and aim to offer paid work placements to up to 50 participants.


WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
We are looking for agencies and in-house comms teams to host an intern for four weeks from 1st – 26th July 2019, paying the candidate at least minimum wage for five weeks (the Summer Stars programme begins with an intensive week of PR lectures and training from 24th-28th June 2019).

Participating companies will also make a £500 donation to the Foundation to help cover the costs of the programme.

Our experienced team will match you to a suitable candidate. In 2018 100% of employers were happy with the calibre of intern provided.

Applications to host an intern will open soon. If you would like to pre-register your interest, please contact Catriona Salisbury

THE SUMMER STARS LECTURES
PR companies and teams will also be able to buy places for their employees at our PR lecture week, which will be held at London College of Communication from 24th to 28th June 2o19. You will be able to buy tickets for either individual lectures, days or the entire week.

More information about the lectures will be released in Spring 2019.
