Clod Ensemble is an internationally renowned performance company delivering an award-winning artistic programme with public engagement at its heart. Through music, movement and performance Clod Ensemble connects people to themselves, to each other, to their communities and to their environment.

LIFT worked with Clod Ensemble originally on the Creative Start (hyperlink) programme which matched people looking to gain experience in the creative sector with local businesses, alongside a program of specially designed learning from City, University of London. Clod Ensemble hosted an intern on the programme for 12 weeks with a focus on Video Content Production.

Following this LIFT supported Clod Ensemble through the process of recruiting to their first apprenticeship, a Content Creator Apprentice. This included creating a JD, connecting them with a training provider and  accessing LIFT’s apprenticeship levy sharing offer to fund the training. LIFT supported the team to recruit a local LIFT resident who is now progressing well in their role.

“LIFT have been a pleasure to work with throughout this process. Their staff have been attentive, diligent and responsive throughout, guiding us through a recruitment process which is new to us (we have never had an apprentice in our organisation before). They have been clear with the aims of LIFT and how it translates to the particular role we have recruited for. They were helpful in spreading the word about the role, organising access opportunities for candidates (i.e. online introductory session about the role/our company for prospective candidates), and bridging the gap between ourselves and the apprenticeship provider.”
