Work Experience

Getting work experience in PR is difficult, we have all been there.

We occasionally take on students for work experience placements as part of our aim to be a socially responsible PR agency.
 
What we are looking for?
  • Recent Graduate or current student on any full time degree course (it doesn't have to be a PR or a media related course, PR requires all sorts of skill sets)
  • IT literate
  • Can demonstrate a firm interest in PR and communications
  • Good verbal and written communication skills
  • Don't worry about previous office experience
  • A rounded personality

Our work experience placements can last a couple of weeks to a couple of months. Part time arrangements can also be made. Most are unpaid but we can offer expenses and out of pocket reimbursement. Work experience is an investment on your part and we will make sure you gain valuable experience from your time at Real.

We don't offer work experience to higher students, to be honest it is far too early for you to focus on any single career, but we would be happy to talk to you about a career in PR if you are interested in finding out more.

To apply please email us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Please put the words "Work Experience - NAME" in the subject line.

You will need to include

  • A short CV (don't worry if you don't have references)
  • A brief covering letter explaining why you are pursuing a career in PR and a few interesting points about yourself

We will get back in touch with you to let you know about any opportunities.
