The B-Hive Plan

Getting a job in the creative industries is very competitive. With companies always looking for that extra something from candidates, it can be tough to set yourself apart from the competition...

B-Hive can give you a head start and ensure you stand out from the pack!

The deal is simple, you choose a category that is most suitable for your skills and ability, submit a creative response to our brief and if successful, you will be shortlisted and invited to present your idea for our expert council.  B-Hive is split into 4 categories – Advertising/Creative, Design, Marketing and PR & Social; each category consists of a panel of judges representing leading creative agencies and big brands.

B-Hive is open to all undergraduate and MA students from one of participating universities, offering each applicant the opportunity to win one of 24 paid work placements. 

To take part all you need to do is to pick the category that’s most appropriate to you, download the brief and start crafting your response. The best entrants in each discipline will be invited to present to a panel of industry experts during a two day event in March 2017. Think Dragons Den with less dragon-like dragons.

Details of the briefs, along with release dates and submission deadlines can be found in the Enter B-Hive section of the site.

Being awarded a placement with one of these companies is guaranteed to not only give you valuable experience, but to open doors for you within the industry!

So if you think you have what it takes then read through the info and get busy. You’ll also find lots of other useful stuff too such as which employers are involved, advice from key industry experts, what happened last year, plus much more.
