AdMission 2017

We are the recruitment partner for the IPA’s 2017 AdMission Internship Programme.

About AdMission

In summer 2017 there will be 50, 10-12 week paid internships available at some of the IPA’s 300 member agencies aimed at STEM and BAME penultimate and final year students.

The AdMission internship programme gives undergraduates and new graduates insight into the new graduate job roles emerging  across the advertising sector which benefit from degrees in mathematics, physics, computer science, data science, software and electronic engineering, economics, psychology and anthropology.

Digital technology is transforming the way advertising companies do business. Data analysis drives consumer insight. Algorithms dictate real-time media buying, coding underpins the functionality of the websites and apps built for communications and e-commerce. Behavioural science informs user experience journeys. STEM graduates who want to apply their skills to a creative communications environment are needed by the sector.

Advertising is a reflection of society, and the sector is keen to increase their representation of the multi-cultural society in which we live and work. The AdMission Internship programme welcomes applications from Black And Minority Ethnic students to support this pipeline of talent.

The internship roles:

Data Analyst

Digital Strategist

Real Time Media Planner


Developer / Creative Technologist

User Experience Planner

Creative Planner


Timetable and How to apply

Register with Step via our portal. You will need to create a profile, providing details of your degree ,work experience and skills, along with a personal statement.  The personal statement is like a cover letter; you should set out why you are interested in doing an internship in the advertising sector. Describe any skills you already have that are relevant to the AdMission Programme and your preferred role,  and what you hope to gain from the internship.

Step two:

Apply for one of the seven roles.  If you meet the basic eligibility criteria (degree pathway, eligible to work in the UK after graduation, well written personal statement) we will also assess if your skills set is suitable for any of the other roles.
