With offices based in Liverpool, Manchester & London, Active Profile is a firmly established PR, Marketing and Communications Agency that develops and deliver communication strategies for brands, cementing their work to their clients business goals, ensuring everything they do pushes them forward.

Active Profile has launched a new online workshop series to help people ‘break into’ the industry. and this session will focus on breaking into a career relative to PR, Marketing or Graphic Design.

The initiative aims to give people an opportunity to find out more about life in a fast-paced, growth-driven agency and give them some helpful advice so that they can build on their skills and future careers.

With many agencies working from home and following social distancing regulations, people may have missed out on valuable work experience and internship placements this summer, however Active Profile hopes to help fill the gap through the ‘Break Into…’ programme.

Active Profile recognise how much students/graduates get out of spending time in a real work environment, and what they learn from those experiences can set them up for their first jobs in the PR and marketing industry.

Their agency has a diverse skill set within their team, and their staff have all taken different routes into the roles they’re now in, so there should be something of interest for everyone.

During the first ‘Break Into…’ session, attendees will hear how the agency got started, what a ‘typical’ day looks like, as well as guidance on what they can do to stand out from the crowd with future employers.

As part of their launch of ‘Break Into…’, they will also be committing to offering different work experience and shadowing opportunities with the team in the future.

For the time being, the sessions will be held online meaning that anyone can take part but when the time is appropriate, they will invite people into the offices so that they can have a more hands-on experience.

The first introductory ‘Break Into…’ session will be focused PR, marketing and graphic design and held on Thursday 10th September from 1 pm – 2 pm, with those with specific interest areas split into individual breakout groups.
