Following on from my previous blog regarding Black History Month which celebrates Black achievement, I am posting details of a Customer & Communications BAME Internship, which aims to increase the representation of students of African, Afro-Caribbean, Asian or Chinese origin in marketing and communications. The role is with Transport for London.
The Customer and Communications Internship is a diversity initiative targeted at students of African, Afro-Caribbean, Asian or Chinese origin (or combinations of the above) who are studying, have recently graduated, or have demonstrated an interest in the marketing or communications industry. These groups are under-represented regionally, and nationally, in marketing and communications which is why this scheme has been created.
You must be an undergraduate or recent graduate of BAME (as defined below) origin on track to receive, or have already achieved, a 2:2 in any degree, or, have no more than one year’s experience in the communications industry – such as in marketing, stakeholder engagement, public affairs or other related field.
What you’ll be doing
Working in a fast-paced marketing and communications environment based in TfL’s Head office, you will have the opportunity to develop your skills in creating campaigns, developing customer messaging and influence customer behaviour to help you start your career.
You will be involved in key projects and campaigns and have the opportunity to gain experience in another team, giving you a broader experience of how marketing and communications works at TfL. Throughout your time, you will work collaboratively with other teams across the business, and gain an understanding of transport as well as marketing and communications.

The closing date is 23 November 2018.
Best of luck!
