6-month paid internship and learning programme for people wanting to get into the advertising, communication, and media industry.

HKX Platform x LIFT programme is a unique placement experience. It’s a 6-month in-depth learning experience for people wanting to get into the advertising, communication, and media industry. The programme is ideal for anyone who likes brands, culture, and communication. You’ll be a part of the real team, working on real briefs, doing real work, for real clients. 

Not only will you be in a focused job paying London Living Wage (£11.95 per hour) for 6 months, learning from the best in our industry and doing amazing work, but you will also receive additional employability support to help boost your employment prospects in the future. 
The programme will be based within HKX, Havas’s London office, which is home to 24 agencies which all share the same office space, with the aim to increase collaboration and communication between all their people and agencies. 
We are looking for entrepreneurial, innovative, accountable, committed, and collaborative candidates. You don’t need any previous experience or specific skills: we’re more interested in what you will bring, not what you can already do. 
The LIFT and Havas teams will provide mentoring and coaching throughout the internship journey and offer ongoing support at the end of the placement to help plan the next steps in the creative sector. 

What will you gain from the HKX Platform x LIFT Programme? 

  • 6 months of paid work experience in a Havas business, full time, paid at London Living Wage (£11.95 per hour), 
  • The opportunity to work within a creative advertising business, contributing to real projects and being an important part of a team 
  • Access to a training program which will run in tandem with the placement for ½ a day a week alongside support around starting out in the creative sector and continuing to develop following the programme.  
  • Mentoring and support from the LIFT and Havas teams to help develop skills and support their journey. 
  • Peer-2-peer support throughout the programme
