Jack Spivey has taken the first steps on the career ladder with Sunderland PR agency Press Ahead.
Jack, a level 3 media student at Redcar and Cleveland College, was contacted by managing director Kieron Goldsborough after winning a logo design competition through the college.
“I’m really enjoying working at Press Ahead and getting to see how the creative team works,” he said.
“I’m picking up lots of tips, skills and advice that I can use in the future.”
The 19-year-old plans to move on to study at university after completing his college course, then hopes to work in graphic design after he finishes his studies.
“Students like Jack bring some great ideas and enthusiasm to the team and in return we can help them develop and learn skills that they can take forward into a career,” said Kieron Goldsborough.
