Re:Generation 2031 work placement scheme

An integral part of the Re:Generation 2031 initiative is our funded work placements in the creative and cultural sector. These entry-level roles are tailored towards young people living across the Thames Estuary region who have lacked opportunities, who are underrepresented in the sector and who want to explore career opportunities within the creative industries.

We also believe this is a vital opportunity for creative organisations or individuals based in the Thames Estuary region to increase their capacity and grow their business or practice. These host organisations benefit from not only being given the funding to create a new role within their business, but also a chance to gain a fresh perspective and a dynamic professional relationship with the young person recruited. The young person can take to their first steps in a creative career, whilst the organisation is able to hone their professional development skills and expand their outreach and production. These funded placements can also be the stepping-stone for organisations to be able to create extended or permanent job roles within their business or practise.

So far, 30 young people from North Kent and South Essex have been placed in a variety of roles (freelance and PAYE) with host organisations from across a range of industries including comedy; gaming; theatre; music; fashion; placemaking; galleries & museums; film & TV; live events; public art; web design; supply-chain (fabrication); education; set & costume design.
