Successful candidates will start their internship at Headland

I have enjoyed my internship. One of my favourite parts of Headland is the culture, the agency champions collaboration. All the staff are easy to talk to and always willing to answer questions. Everyone is passionate about their work, but they also are incredibly patient and understand that I am still developing. They give you all the tools to thrive and the space to grow/learn as well as the independency to contribute to the teams in your own way.

During my eight weeks at Headland, I have gained a wide range of invaluable experience working across Public Affairs, Corporate Communications, and Financial PR client accounts. Along with this, I also took part in multiple creative projects alongside other interns, developing social media campaigns and gaining experience in the digital side of PR. Along with this very enjoyable work, there is also a very friendly, sociable, and welcoming working environment – you will feel truly integrated into the company!

The valuable experience that I have gained over the past 8 weeks at Headland will undoubtedly shape and influence my future career. The opportunity to contribute directly to client teams and in doing so help the clients themselves in achieving their reputational goals has further shown me the importance that a strong communications strategy has in any business. My exposure to the skills that Headland uses to develop and carry out these strategies has been invaluable.

I have really enjoyed my eight weeks here at Headland. There aren’t many places where you can work with such a diverse range of well-known companies and do such rewarding work for them. As interns, we were properly introduced to the PR world through a week of induction sessions before starting our client work. And throughout our internship we have had the chance to learn more about the industry through coffee meetings with people from all across the agency. Anyone curious about PR should really apply for the Headland internship!

I really enjoyed interning at Headland! I really like the integrated approach that Headland takes. I think it’s because of that approach that I have genuinely learned so much about PR and Public Affairs and am able to see the comms industry as the interweaving web it is as opposed to varying sectors. Most of all, I enjoyed having a tangible impact on client team work.
