Hatch Fledgling Programme

What is Fledglings?

Fledglings is Hatch’s internship programme – a unique opportunity to gain paid work experience across a variety of roles within the agency, open to anyone over the age of 16, regardless of education levels or qualifications.

Fledglings is our commitment to supplying talented individuals with that all important ‘foot in the door’ and provide a taste of what can be expected from a career in PR, Social and Content.

Campaigns Worth Talking About

What's it all about?

Unlike the usual graduate recruitment programmes out there, which usually require a degree level education and months of work experience, Fledglings is unique. No prior experience is required – we are looking for candidates with creativity, ambition and passion. Our aim is to provide you with a tailored programme bespoke to you and your individual goals, with support from a mentor and a training package designed to enable you to learn on the job.

To help shape the programme, we’ll find out a little bit more about your ambitions and personal interests, so we can make sure you benefit from our full client roster and receive first-hand experience across a range of disciplines, gaining insight into the world of PR, social media, events, production and design. Whether your passion is food, drink, sport or lifestyle, we’ve got you covered!

How does it work?

All you need to do to apply is get your thinking cap on and tell us in a creative way why you think you could be one of our Fledglings (the world is your oyster!).
Each year, we also offer a full-time paid placement for up to 12 months, beginning in summer.
