Graduate Creative Content Internships 2023

Creative Fuse Tees Valley are searching for ambitious Tees Valley SMEs who require digital creative content to join with Teesside University graduates & postgraduates as part of our exciting new 4 weeks full time, or 8 weeks part-time creative content internship programme starting in January 2023.

This internship programme is being delivered in partnership with DigitalCity and Adobe Creative Campus. Businesses will be supported by Teesside University graduates and postgraduates who will have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud to create digital creative content. The internships will be ERDF funded* meaning that local businesses will receive support from interns at no cost, and graduates will be paid the recommended living wage for their age during the internship period.

This summer, our fully-funded internship programme launched for Teesside University students to support businesses in the Tees Valley with a piece of digital creative content or a project brief. This was fantastic and beneficial as creative students supported many local SMEs to fill the skills and expertise missing in their businesses to produce creative content.

“We are delighted to once again be able to provide local businesses with this fully funded opportunity to gain a Teesside University intern, who are using their creative skills to support SMEs who otherwise wouldn’t be able to gain such expertise and resources to produce creative content.

At Creative Fuse Tees Valley, our aim is to collaborate with Tees Valley businesses to promote growth and to support SMEs throughout their business journeys.”

Lynsey Robinson, Director of DigitalCity.

Successful applications are based on a matching process and availability of the business and graduate. The internships can be flexible depending on the project and intern, so please get in touch and we can help you build your brief.

Tees Valley businesses and Teesside University graduates/postgraduates can contact Natalie to register their interest in the internship programme and to find out if they are eligible. Please email

Interns could produce content such as social media, website or film content, but all that is asked is that there is a tangible asset delivered at the end of the internship period and that businesses are realistic with their projects and briefs.

Creative Fuse Tees Valley will match the opportunity with an intern who has the skills and passion for the type of content and/or the sector you are working in to ensure briefs are met correctly with the right expertise.

If you are a Tees Valley business and require some digital creative content like social media/website content, animations or films then please apply now and we can help you. If you are a Teesside University graduate or postgraduate and would like to gain real-life experience and an addition to your portfolio please contact us.
