Tees Valley creative sector to benefit from talent boost with new internship scheme
A new scheme launched in Tees Valley is set to support and drive growth of the region’s creative industries.
The Creative Fuse Tees Valley initiative has launched a new internship scheme to drive growth in the region’s creative, cultural, heritage and digital sectors.
Tees Valley creative SMEs, including micro-businesses and freelancers, can now apply to have a masters student join their team for a four-week period, fully funded through Teesside University.
Masters students across several disciplines are eligible to apply including those from Teesside University Business School, School of Computing, Engineering, Digital and Technology and MIMA.
Wendy Parvin, business development manager for Creative Fuse Tees Valley, commented: “The internships have been designed for maximum impact on local business growth, including freelancers as well as micro-, small and medium enterprises.
“We understand that independent business owners and creative entrepreneurs don’t often have the time or funds available to hire an intern, particularly new ventures or those trying to get back on their feet after Covid-19.
“However, we take the load off host businesses allowing them to utilise the fully funded extra resource and focus solely on their growth project, ultimately adding value to the ecosystem across local creative sectors.”
