The Northern Ireland Creative Employment Programme (NI CEP) has allowed us to create two paid internship roles at Stendhal.

We just needed an extra kick to help us grow and help us get better.

They’ve brought energy, they’ve brought enthusiasm, they’ve brought their own skills and I think it’s important for organisations like ourselves to be invested in young people and give them opportunities to increase their skills because really they’re the next generation, the next cultural leaders.

It’s a fantastic programme. It gets people work, it gets small companies and small businesses like ours the help that we need to grow. Apply!

Creative businesses can access £2500 through the NI CEP to create a paid internship for 18-24 year olds. Final round of funding closes on Friday 16th June, don’t miss out!
