MARKETING consultancy Teviot has launched a year-long paid internship for a student at Edinburgh College’s Visual Communication HND course.

As part of the Firestarter programme the successful graduate will join the company in August 2017 for at least 12 months, and will learn from Teviot’s experienced team of marketing and branding specialists.

Teviot has been involved in a mentoring programme with college over the past two years, led by Senior Designer Kirsten Murray, a former student of the course. Teviot is now an official partner of Edinburgh College and said the internship scheme builds upon this relationship.
