Boomtown's Bayeza internship applications now open

Port Elizabeth-based strategic brand agency, Boomtown, is looking for its next team of creative graduates to join the agency from April 1st 2016.

Applications are open to candidates in marketing, graphic design, copywriting, brand strategy, PR and social media. Candidates can email their CVs through to [email protected] until March 11th, 2016.

Young black talent taken under the Boomtown creative wing

Boomtown’s Bayeza programme was developed four years ago to nurture the talent of young creatives from previously disadvantaged communities, who are still studying, or who have recently completed their studies. It came to fruition with the realisation that there was a large group of young creative talent that could not knock down the barriers to entry into the industry because of a lack of experience.

On the programme, Andrew MacKenzie, Boomtown Managing Director, says: “South Africa has an abundance of eager graduates looking to make their mark in industry, and it’s fostering this talent that will lead to the country being a strong competitor in the global market.

“Bayeza graduates are fast-tracked through the agency giving them a rounded understanding of life at Boomtown so they know what to expect when they enter full-time employment. Exposing them to a fast-paced agency life, the individuals come out being highly employable, and knowledgeable on what they want from their career.”

In 2015, Bayeza took on five individuals who are soon to leave the programme as it welcomes its new influx of graduates. Discover their stories here:
