We're excited to announce that we have launched our 8-week intensive program intern program ‘Edge Up’. 

Students in their last year of study will be mentored in their main area of interest by our own senior team, whether in account management, strategy, editorial and design.

They will also be exposed to other areas of Edge through weekly lectures and 101 sessions by department heads. They will attend the company’s monthly Edge University training as well all company gatherings and functions.

Students will work collaboratively over the eight weeks to deliver a strategic and creative response for a real-world pro bono client brief. At the end of the program they will be given the opportunity to pitch to the client and agency at large.

Students will be able to pick the brains of our senior staff through laid-back Q&A sessions over a coffee.

Getting the best and brightest young talent into Edge is so important and Edge Up is a key part of that. We have developed a structured learning experience for students and integrated the programme into the day to day, week to week agency activities so it is a sustainable investment for us.

The program is a great opportunity to kick-start a career in advertising. Over the last three years we have recruited five new members to our team via intern programs and we expect that to continue.

We are currently seeking applications. Due to COVID-19, the program will kick-off later in the year, likely in September.
