Cult LDN is combining forces with Ravensbourne University to launch Fresh Meat – a programme for student talent that facilitates practical work-place learning in the creative industry.
Cult has spent the past four years investing in young talent, believing in an education-first approach to deliver brave campaigns for its global clients.
Fresh Meat enables the brightest emerging talent from Ravensbourne to get a hands-on experience of life in the industry whilst allowing Cult to seek out the finest young creatives to join the team.
The partnership will kick off with the annual Connect Awards this May, where live briefs for the final year students will be judged by Cult LDN CEOs, Cat Turner and Bridey Lipscombe. The briefs will focus on developing an idea to create an innovative way to run a 360 campaign that links online and offline.
The winners will receive a three month Fresh Meat internship at Cult, continuous mentorship by co-founders and their creative director with the opportunity to join the Cult LDN Family full time.
CEO Cat Turner says ”Cult has long attracted talent from the brightest in the industry, but in 2017 we wanted to formalise our commitment to delivering great work by forging this incredible relationship with Ravensbourne. Over the years we’ve consistently hired smart, hybrid creatives from this well-respected institution, and we are delighted to have FreshMeat support future undergrads as they transition into the industry. We’re committed to developing the best partnership possible and will continue to evolve our offering as grads pass through the programme.”
Fresh Meat will continue to support Ravensbourne students throughout the academic year, with guest lectures from the leadership team, Facebook LIVE briefings, portfolio reviews and mock interviews and a whole roster of activities designed to support the next generation of talent.
