Our work experience programme

Work experience at Graphite gives you an engaging and interactive introduction to the digital industry, the different departments within a digital agency and the varied job roles available. You will be given the opportunity to complete challenges and activities from real-life projects that Graphite has worked on for clients and get an insight into agency culture. We can help you to decide if a digital career is for you and the type of role that may be the best fit. The Graphite team are extremely approachable and willing to answer any questions you may have during your time with us. 

We are offering work experience for six students or young people aged over 15 years. The six successful applicants will be split into two groups and will complete the programme as a team of three. One of our programmes will be run in the July Summer Holidays and the other will be run in October Half Term.

We will continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19. We are currently planning on running our programme remotely via Google Hangouts as we did in 2020. Nearer the time, we will evaluate the situation and if it becomes safe to offer an opportunity to come into the office we will try to do so.

  • In the final year of high school, at college or over the age of 15
