Bauer Media signs up to the Kickstart scheme
Bauer Media has signed up to the UK Government’s new kickstart scheme for young people seeking their first role in the media industry.
Bauer says applications are welcome from 16-24-year-old jobseekers from all backgrounds across the UK as the company continues its commitment to greater diversity and inclusion.
The programme will be run by the Bauer Academy, the Government registered training division of Bauer Media, which provides Apprenticeship Standard training for Bauer’s radio and publishing professionals and other companies including ITV, Reach PLC, Immediate Media.
Work placements will be available within all core areas of the business, from broadcasting and journalism, to sales and marketing.
Bauer Media’s People and Culture Director, Sarah Barnes said: “At Bauer we work hard to level the playing field so that all can access opportunities within our teams, and so we were really drawn by the government’s fantastic new kickstart programme that aims to give unemployed young people a future.
“These promising young individuals will have the unique opportunity to apply for placements that provide on-the-job training, skills development and mentoring from some of the UK media industry’s most well-respected professionals, giving them the well-deserved first break that can so often be hard to come by, particularly in the ongoing climate.”
The placements will commence within Bauer from November 2020. Applicants should head to the jobhelp website for more information. For further information on the Kickstart scheme, head to the Government website.
