By completing this form you are formally registering your interest in the summer stars placement scheme. You will receive one week of training at the London College of Communication, 24th - 28th June 2019, followed by a placement in a PR work environment for a minimum of 4 weeks from 1st July.
You may be placed at either a PR consultancy or an in-house communications team. You will not be able to specify which employer you go to - you’ll have to trust us to match you to the right employer - but this form allows you to indicate your preference for disciplines and sectors. All placements will be in London and accessible on public transport.
You will be paid at least National Minimum wage for the duration of the training week and the work placement.
This programme is only open to black and minority ethnic graduates, university students and school leavers. This group is currently recognised as being under-represented in public relations/communications and this training and placement programme has been devised as a proportionate means to address this problem.
Not all applicants will be offered a place on this scheme, but all applicants will receive a reply. If your written application is successful the next stage will be a telephone screening interview.
