Wavemaker UK, the media, content and tech agency, has announced the launch of a progressive apprenticeship programme called The Splash.
Building on previous talent innovations including the ‘Live Hire’ initiative, The Splash is designed to encourage greater diversity in entry-level recruitment at Wavemaker, which aims to employ 12 apprentices from all backgrounds to each work in one of its specialisms of media, content, and technology.
The Splash is open to school leavers aged 18-plus, but Wavemaker is encouraging applications from people of all ages as part of its drive to tackle the problem of ageism in the media industry.
In addition to providing apprentices with specific professional and life skills, Wavemaker is also creating a studio space for The Splash, a place for apprentices to gather and work on live ideas and proactive briefs for clients. Members of The Splash, who will be known as Future Makers, rather than Apprentices, will work a four-day week at the agency, and will also receive regular presentation and mentoring sessions.
WM The Splash is a 15/18 month scheme, 4 days a week, starts in September, with a permanent role up at Wavemaker up for grabs at the end of the apprenticeship
