Leading Midlands Public Relations Agency Inspired By National Campaign…

Submitted by on August 27, 2013 – 8:30 am |

Ash Dhindsa - Intern at Clarke AssociatesA Birmingham-based communications consultancy has announced the recruitment of its latest team member under an initiative by trade body the PRCA (Public Relations Consultants Association).

The initiative commits companies to pay interns a fair wage and recently attracted its 100th supporting agency. With more than two and a half decades in business, Clarke Associates, that has always encouraged and supported work placements, has followed suit and recruited their latest graduate, Ash Dhindsa as Communications Executive.

Ash has joined the consultancy on a six-month internship that will see him working across a range of disciplines as part of the company’s integrated communications approach. He originally undertook a two day a week work placement with the firm – having won an award at Birmingham City University, sponsored by Clarke Associates.

He said: “In just over a month, I have already built myself a long list of experience, being involved in the more imaginative side of PR through to the fundamentals that keep the ball rolling.

“The most valuable piece of advice I can give to any graduate, given the opportunity of an internship is, do it! More specific to PRs, be willing to learn and try your hand at anything that comes your way as you might just find yourself a specialism.

“My first month has been busy yet rewarding and I’m looking forward to getting involved in some exciting campaigns for our clients.”

Clarke Associates’ MD David Clarke said it was the firm’s ethos to support young entrants to the sector.

“The PRCA campaign is a great initiative and one that looks towards shaping the future of the industry, which is something we strongly support.

“In a challenging economic environment, it’s important that we reward interns and nurture their growth. Our team has a diverse mixture of personalities and skills and we want to continue to build on that by supporting the PRCA initiative which is backed by our own trade paper, PR Week,”he said.
