We run a scholarships programme helping fund junior talent onto the career ladder with our Creative Equals Intern Bursary with D&AD New Blood. We also run a 'Returnships programme' to get parents/careers back into the workplace after an extended break. To help make the transition work, we'll work with your team to set up a support network for this talent.

Mums (and Dads) who may have left, we want you. Our research (Young Creative Council, 2016) revealed more than 60% of young creative females say they can’t stay in the industry with a family. So, when career progression dovetails with motherhood we lose our talent. And, after years out of the market, returning Mums interviewing for a job face the ‘Motherhood penalty’. Is this you? We’ll help you return.
You can retrain with D&AD or the SCA. Go back for a week or a month - it's up to you. Work on fresh briefs, update your book and receive top training.
Come back to the workplace for six-to-ten weeks and work alongside a top Creative Director or Design Director, refresh your book and see what’s new in adland.
