To recruit five new students to work in its creative agency, Two Birds One Stone is launching a Student Apprentice, with judges such as The Apprentice’s Alex Epstein and the sales and marketing director of King of Shaves.
Students are being invited to an initial interview process on Monday 17 October, at which they will have two minutes to impress the panel. Successful candidates will be put in to groups of five and given the live brief from King of Shaves.
The five groups will pitch their campaign on Friday 28 October to a panel including Nathan Lane, managing director of Bell Pottinger; and Gerard Savva, director of Two Birds One Stone.
Paul Adrian, director of sales and marketing UK and EMEA at King of Shaves, said: “It’s fantastic to see young people being enterprising and we are looking forward to hearing the ideas the students have for our brand.”
Adam Burns, co-founder of Two Birds One Stone, said: “We are looking for creative students who want to succeed in business. Our clients value the youth insight we bring, so having a young team of energetic and innovative students is vitally important.
“It is a fantastic opportunity for students to gain experience and secure a job, at a time when finding employment is tough. Students will only have two minutes to sell themselves at the initial interview stage, so we are encouraging them to be creative and try to catch our eye before the day.”
