Please note: applications for this course are closed.

This scheme aims to offer opportunities to those currently underrepresented in the creative industry, so we are particularly keen to hear from disabled people, ethnically diverse people and people from lower socio-economic groups.

Yes. The course application is open to residents of the Yorkshire region aged between 18 and 24. You must be within this age range on the closing date for applications – Monday 28th February 2022 at 1700.

The course is for 14 weeks in total and starts on Monday 2nd May 2022.

The 6 week SharpFutures bootcamp is from Monday 2nd May 2022 until Friday 10th June 2022 and then the 8 week work placement begins on Monday 13th June 2022 until Friday 5th August 2022. The programme will require the trainees to be available on bank holidays.

Should your application reach the next stage of the process you will be required to have an interview.

The interviews will take place online between Monday 7th March 2022 – Friday 25th March 2022.

By Monday 4th April you will hear from us if you have successfully gained a place on the course. This will give you 4 weeks before the start date of the course in which you can inform your employer if needed.

The Content Creatives scheme will provide 8 week work placements at either 4Studio or at one of our creative partners, including Born Ugly, CreativeRace, Dubit, McCann Leeds and Social. You will not be able to choose which work placement that you go far but as part of the recruitment will we match trainees on the scheme with the organisations and roles which most align with their interests and can offer them the best experience.

If you have successfully gained a place on the course, you will be given a wage. The wage would be the real living wage which at the time is £9.90 per hour for 35 hours per week.

Unfortunately, this course is only available to residents within the Yorkshire region. The Yorkshire region includes North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, East Yorkshire and South Yorkshire.

For the duration of the course (14 weeks) you’ll be supplied with a laptop so that you can access software, programmes and content during the SharpFutures training and your work placement. Some limited funds will be available to improve your internet/WIFI connectivity if required. All technology will be required to be returned at the end of the course.

The course is a paid for full time placement that will take place between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday so you would need to be available at those times. So if you are working full time you would not be able to take part.

The course is not open for those in full time education during the time of the course and work placement.

You do NOT need specific experience to take part in the course but knowledge of social media content, channels, streaming services (YouTube) and an interest in Channel 4 content would be a plus in your application.

Your application must reach us by Monday 28th February 2022 at 17:00.
