Get paid to get trained this summer at Born Ready, Born Social's first Trainee Scheme.

We’re looking for under-represented talent between the ages of 18-24 to join us for 12 weeks this summer on a fully paid scheme at London Living Wage.

*btw, by under-represented we mean anybody who is currently insufficiently represented in the advertising industry. Right now that's people of colour, people with any form of disability, neurodivergent people, people who identify as LGBTQIA+, and people from working-class backgrounds.

đź‘‹ Who we are

Born Social is a global social media agency that brings social-first thinking to the brands of tomorrow.

For the last 10 years, we’ve helped brands navigate and harness the chaos of social bringing method to the madness.From household names like Guinness, Dettol, and Uber to the next generation of big brands like Nando's and Fever-Tree.

We're an ambitious team of almost 100 people across the UK, Spain, France, Portugal & Germany.

✏️ What you'll be doing...

Our trainee scheme is built quite literally to get you ready for a job at Born Social. To help do that, you'll spend the 12 weeks in three different parts...

  1. Social-first School: in your first week you'll learn all about what a social media agency actually does, and how to harness the chaos of social media for the brands of tomorrow
  2. Team Rotation: over the following few weeks you will spend a couple of days in each of our departments getting to know the work they do and more importantly, how they do it
  3. Specialism: from there you'll move into an eight-week specialism in either Social Media Management or Creative, depending on your application.  During this time you'll get to work on actual campaigns we're delivering to clients and learn from the experts in your field

👀 Who we're looking for...

  • You're between the age of 18-24 years old

  • You're from an under-represented background
  • You get social, maybe you're already doing TikTok challenges, vlogging your morning coffee, making memes or tweeting your every thought
  • Your brain is bubbling with ideas of how brands can use social
  • You want to use your voice to make an impact 
  • You're curious about a future career in social media but maybe not sure what that involves yet!

We are hiring for two spots in the trainee scheme, one for the Creative department and one for the Social Media Management department.

⏭️ What happens after the scheme?

At the end of the scheme, we should have got you Born Ready!  You'll then have the chance to apply for a full-time permanent role (if you want to) as either a Social Media Executive or a Junior Creative depending on where you spent your specialism.
