Sofia’s summer work experience at RBH

Following a week’s work experience, Sophia talks about her time at RBH.

Hi, I’m Sofia. I’m about to go into Year 11 at school and complete my GCSEs. I love being creative and some of my subjects include Art and Photography.

This month, I did work experience in RBH’s creative department and I had an amazing time. I worked across a range of clients like Birmingham Airport, Young British Designers and Mell Square, doing everything from designing posters to storyboarding videos and coming up with campaign ideas.

Every day I learned something new. I got to see how the briefing process works, understand how to express my ideas and then see how I can tailor them to the specific client. These are valuable skills that I can take forward to future placements and jobs.

It was really helpful to get to know everyone and their role in the business. Morgan showed me the photography studio and I was able to get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the projects he works on.

RBH was my first ever work experience placement and I’ve come away with a greater insight into how advertising works and the role that the creative department has to play in it. Thanks to Steph and Sarah who really helped guide me through this week.

I enjoyed every minute at RBH and can’t image anywhere else I would have wanted to go. I now have a range of ideas about potential career options I’d like to pursue (especially photography!), which will help me massively as I leave school and go to college.

We will be welcoming some new faces to RBH in the next few weeks. For two of them, this hasn’t been your run-of-the-mill recruitment process as we’re working with Aspire4U and doing it through the government’s new Kickstart Scheme, which is designed to provide funding to create six-month placements for out-of-work 16-24-year-olds who are at risk of long-term unemployment.
