Listen to this article

Festival Republic has announced plans to introduce an apprenticeship scheme at Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as an internship scheme. Two apprenticeships, one at Reading Festival and one at Leeds Festival, have been created alongside 10 internships lasting up to three weeks.

Young people, event management students and 2012 ticket holders are being given the chance to be involved in all aspects of the festivals including PR, marketing, social media, ticketing and production.

The apprenticeships will last for one year, and the placements will be located in London or on site at Reading or Leeds.

Applicants, who must be aged between 18 and 25 years old, will be asked to compose a letter of no more than 500 words on why they would like to be considered for an internship, giving details on the area they would prefer to work in.

Full details on how to apply for both the apprenticeships and internships will be posted on the Festival Republic site soon.
