These seven were then put through two Red and Yellow digital sales courses and every intern spent valuable time working at Spark Media, Caxton Magazines and Caxton Digital. They gained knowledge into all aspects of the business and have produced outstanding marks with their studies too.

They now embark on their next step, after being integrated into the Caxton group for the past eight months. "Spark Media's first intake of digital sales interns has been a major success and we fully endorse these students into the media industry's working world," says Marc Du Plessis, Commercial Director at Spark Media.

"We urge those companies who have positions available to look no further! We have some fantastic, hardworking individuals with serious digital knowledge and experience chomping at the bit," he adds.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us for recommendations.
