Women, Black, Asian and minority ethnic talent are chronically under-represented in Britain’s ad industry, an industry worth over £22 billion a year. Brixton Finishing School is a free industry paid for bootcamp set to help change that by putting diverse young talent into actual jobs.

Some of the biggest names are joining forces to fund a new scheme to redress the balance and bring young talent from diverse communities into actual jobs in the capital’s big names in advertising, digital and media.

The #BrixtonFinishingSchool is looking for the next generation of media, digital and advertising stars – young talent aged 18 – 25 that perhaps can’t afford to splash out tens of thousands on uni fees – talent from backgrounds which are under represented to get actual jobs with top firms and enrolment for this summer’s bootcamp ends on MAY 25TH.

Brixton Finishing School features also on the London Mayor’s Free Digital Skills For Young Londoners website. London Mayor Sadiq Khan launched his initiative this year to inspire young people to join London’s booming digital, tech and creative industries and tackle the under-representation of women and black, asian and minority ethnic people in the sector.

The Brixton Finishing School will offer people from backgrounds under-represented in the industry a free 12-week bootcamp in digital, advertising and marketing skills. Continue reading full article here.
