BECG Group’s Creative Services: LoveThat, won the CCI Placement Provider of the Year at Portsmouth University’s Placements Celebration Event.
LoveThat was nominated by Darek Kosinski, who recently completed a year-long internship at its’ Southampton studio. Working closely with Mark Darlington, LoveThat’s Head of Video, Darek focused on developing his video production skills including live action shoots, editing and motion graphics. He was also involved in creating LoveThat’s podcast series and other promotional content.
Darek’s placement was such a success that he stayed on for an extra three months, working over the summer period and only leaving when he had to return to university to complete his final year of studies.
Charli Edwards, Creative Director, comments:
I’m passionate about nurturing talent and providing as many opportunities as possible for young people entering the creative industry. Building strong relationships between academic institutions and our sector is really important on both sides – students gain experience that helps them make better career choices and we get an injection of bright new ways of thinking.
Our pilot internship with Portsmouth University was a huge success and we’re planning to develop it further, working with more universities and offering placements across our design, digital and video teams.
Eliana Lee-Gibbons, Industry Liaison Manager, Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries, University of Portsmouth, added:
It has been a real pleasure to work with the team at LoveThat, supporting with establishing their pilot internship programme. They provided our student with real opportunities to develop his career and take his skills to the next level. We look forward to continuing working together and have more interns at the BECG Group in different capacities.
