At Cowshed, we’re committed to playing our part in building sustainable, prosperous and equal communities. Not just in the clients we work with, but in the way we do business too.
As we continue to grow, we’ve made strides in our commitment to diversity and inclusion. In the past year alone, we became the first creative agency in Wales to achieve UN Global Compact active status; we’ve been accredited as an Autism Aware business; and we were awarded Blueprint Ally status. But we know there’s always more we can do to ensure our workforce and our campaigns are representative of all people in Wales.
Since launching our internship in 2019, we’ve provided opportunities for five interns and got recognised for having the best internship in the UK by the PRCA. But more importantly, we made a commitment to run the scheme every year to continue breaking down barriers of entry into our industry.
So, whether you’re…
Already in work and wanting a change of career,
Out of work and wanting a fresh start,
A school or university leaver wanting to learn more about the industry,
We want to hear from you!
We will provide a 12-week internship for two successful applicants, and we’ll pay you National Living Wage during the duration of your internship. We’ll also pay for any events or training you undertake during your time here for your personal and professional development.
You will be a highly motivated individual, with creative flair and a positive outlook.
You’ll demonstrate an interest in media and public relations and be committed to developing a career in the industry.
You’ll need to be from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background and be able to work from home (we’ll provide you with the equipment) but also able to travel to our office in Cardiff city centre when needed, or whenever you’d like to!
About the internship
You will gain direct experience across all of Cowshed’s clients – no fake briefs here – working with the likes of Welsh Government, Social Care Wales, National Adoption Service and The Morgan Quarter.
You’ll learn all the skills you need to work in public relations, from campaign planning and evaluation to writing and selling in press releases, interviewing case studies, writing social copy and generating ideas for high profile campaigns. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about how we do business here at Cowshed and join one of our three employee-led taskforces for Culture, Diversity and Inclusion or Mental Health and Wellbeing.
How to apply
To apply, please email us 500 words about why you’d like to be our next intern. You do not need to provide a CV. Applications should be sent to email@example.com before midnight on 14th May.
We aim for the internship to start in June and run for a 12-week period.
What do our previous interns say?
Munir: “This internship has been crucial to my growth as a young professional. If I could go back in time to university and ask myself what I would want from my first experience in the industry, it would have been exactly this – this internship has ticked every box for me.
Zaynub: “What I’ve enjoyed most during my time here at Cowshed is the fact that each day has been so different, which has meant that I’ve been able to work on a number of incredible campaigns. I was fortunate enough to work across both the campaign and creative teams, so my day-to-day varied from design research and development to stakeholder engagement and influencer relations.”
