89up is Europe’s first impact agency campaigning for causes and providing services that ensure that charities, Non-Governmental Organisations and not-for-profits make real change.   

As a small Islington-based agency they were looking for a way to support entry level routes into the creative sector and to diversify their recruitment practices. 

89Up recruited two interns as part of LIFT’s Creative Start (hyperlink) programme which matched people looking to gain experience in the creative sector with local businesses. Following the programme 89Up offered both interns full time, permanent positions on the team in their creative teams. 

Further internships with 89Up have been similarly successful, including a 10 week internship which led to a full-time permanent position as a Junior Digital Account Executive. 

“My advice to other businesses thinking of working with he LIFT programme is: just go for it. This programme has been so useful for 89up, we’ve had such a wonderful experience working with the interns, it’s a fresh perspective for us – one we wouldn’t have got through normal hiring practices. It’s been so useful.”
