Are you a young person looking to develop your career in Cornwall? We’re taking part in the government’s Kickstart Scheme, and we’re looking for:
Junior Digital Marketer
Social Media Creative
These paid roles will be funded for 6 months, with the possibility of becoming full-time once the scheme ends.
Whether you’ve just graduated, or have the equivalent skillset, and are looking for work, this is the leg-up into the industry you’ve been waiting for.
Idenna is a vibrant creative agency based at Indian Queens in the middle of Cornwall. Right now, most of us are working primarily from our homes around the county – so if you wanted to do the same, that would be absolutely fine with us (we just miss the office bants and dogs!).
We started off as a photography partnership in the 90s, and over the years we’ve grown to become a team of 15 talented creatives across film and photography, graphic and web design, and copywriting and social media. Our mission is to tell compelling stories in the right way to the right people, using a collaborative and integrated approach across mixed media.
We work on a huge spectrum of projects for a wide range of clients – from yummy food and drink photography to inspirational content for education providers, and from covering big night out entertainment for our hospitality clients to record-breaking national charity campaigns and TV advertisements. You can check out some of our most recent work here.
Working with us is the good kind of challenging, and the best kind of rewarding. Our culture is friendly and supportive, with the optimum mix of laid-back and go-getting. We’re particularly proud of our team – we make a point of ensuring that we have awesome people achieving their potential, doing what they love, where they love.
We’re all very different characters, and we have 7 core values that inform our decision making and attitude as a business – open, honest, fair, professional, unconventional, fun and courageous. Keeping these in mind helps us to create a thriving, rewarding environment for the team and our clients.
So – experience doesn’t get more real-world than this. Working with us is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in this industry, within a creative and supportive environment, and a fab team backing you every step of the way. You will be well supported and looked after by your department, and we’ll be committed to helping you with:
- support to look for long-term work
- support with CV and interview preparation
- training to develop your skills, such as team work, organisation and communications as part of the role.
You won’t be pretending to work or just making up the numbers – you’ll be an important part of the team, gaining real experience and making real contributions to projects across the board.
