This summer we have set up supervised work placements to provide practical, hands-on experience for local young people.
Ben, our design assistant has been involved with helping the Mackman team re-design a website and has even dabbled in some photography. Ben will be leaving after the summer to study architecture at Newcastle University.
Poppy, our PR assistant has been working alongside Emma, Mackman’s Communications Officer to produce marketing campaigns; she has been shown interview techniques which help create content for website pages and assisted Emma who regularly writes press releases for a number of our clients. Poppy will be leaving after the summer to complete her third year at Bournemouth University where she is studying Communications and Media.
Billy joined the Mackman team for work experience in putting a video and photo shoot together for a client. He gained valuable know-how working alongside Bruce and together they created a time lapse film behind the scenes of the photo shoot at Harlow College. http://www.harlowcollegeno1.org/your-stories/ Billy has just received the results for his AS-levels in which he did well and he will be returning to college in September to complete his A-levels.
We would like to thank them all for all their hard work and wish them all the best for the future.
