Are you looking for an extra pair of hands to help with a business project? EIRA can offer eligible businesses in the East of England an Innovation Internship to help boost business productivity, especially with businesses that need support with digital creative, biotechnology or artificial intelligence projects.
Tyler Hamblin was offered an Innovation Internship with Wonderful, a creative marketing agency based in Kent. It was an opportunity to work for an innovative company, whilst focusing on video production. During his internship, Tyler undertook a range of projects, including 2D animation, live action filming and kinetic typography.
“Within 3 months, I had covered an event in London, produced a handful of animated videos, spent a day filming with an external client at Goodwood, which involved working with Formula 1 cars and self-driving vehicles. In my final month I also coordinated my own shoot with a large client, which involved the pitching of concepts, the hiring of equipment and crew, and directing a shoot in Bradford inside a live hospital all on my own.” – Tyler Hamblin, Wonderful
Tyler particularly enjoyed the internship as it encouraged both independence and the freedom to bring forward his own ideas.
“The collaboration within the company has pushed me to areas I thought I wouldn’t explore right out of uni.”
Tyler impressed the management team at Wonderful so much that his internship turned into a full-time permanent position in the company. This is an excellent example of the EIRA innovation Internships in action – providing businesses in the region with extra resource to boost productivity, whilst offering students and recent graduates meaningful employment within sectors that have a known market need within the region.
