As a partner of the Government’s Kickstart scheme, we are providing three six-month paid job placements within the Youth team at Octavia. Two of these placements have been successfully filled, and the young people enrolled are working closely with our expert digital team as Digital Content Creators.

We still have one vacancy on the scheme left and we want to offer it to third person before the end of November. So, if you're aged between 16 to 24 years old and in receipt of benefits, this could be just what you need to start your career in the creative industry.

By joining us at Octavia you’d have the opportunity to cover Octavia events and activities and produce engaging material such as films. Your creative outputs will be shared on Octavia’s external media channels and on our internal hubs. The visibility of working on these interesting and high-profile projects could be just what you need to get noticed.

So, if you:

  • Are passionate about digital arts, photography, technology and video production
  • Want the chance to learn from expert facilitators
  • Are interested in working with young people, or have experience in this area
  • Want to grow your creative portfolio and work in the creative industries
  • Want to make a difference in your local community….

Then contact Conor Lynch at  conor.lynch@octaviafoundation.org.uk or talk to your DWP work coach to find out more about this opportunity and how to apply.

As well as gaining valuable work experience, you'll receive training, support and expert advice to boost your skills and confidence. You will also maximise your chances of getting your next fantastic role within the creative industry afterwards.
