Punch Creative has recently offered extended paid internships to two Leeds based graduates. Emily Grote joins the Content Team as a Marketing Intern and Megan Lent joins the Creative Team as a Junior Design Intern. Both Emily and Megan completed a four-week work experience placement at Punch, which allowed them to showcase their talent and earn themselves six-month paid internships at the agency.

Phoebe Holden, a recent Leeds University graduate, joins the Content Team as a Marketing Executive. After completing a university placement year at Oxfam, Phoebe brings a wealth of experience, passion for B2C content marketing and a flair for generating organic engagement across social media. Skills that will add value to Punch’s large client base in the hospitality industry.

Phoebe and Emily achieved first-class degrees from their prospective universities this summer, and Megan won the Wood Pencil D&AD Award in 2021 for a brief tackling the taboos of Menopause.

Jack Eustace, a long time client of Punch joins the Client Services team as an Account Manager. Jack’s experience of working both agency and client-side means he has a unique perspective on managing client relationships and projects. Jack brings a level of understanding to the client services team that will support the growth of existing accounts as well as the onboarding of new long-term partnerships.

Last but far from least, Jade Tregilgas, joined the agency as Digital Strategist, a brand new role, signalling an increased focus on data and digital insight. Jade’s wealth of experience in the hospitality industry makes her a great hire for the agency and its clients in this sector.

Commercial Director, Louise Wright, says, “We’re delighted to be welcoming so many new members to the team and we feel privileged to be in a position to be offering experience and opportunities for graduates. Building a strong talent pipeline is one of our core business objectives and I strongly believe it is our cultural initiatives such as the four-day week, our focus on wellbeing and our staff profit share scheme that enables us to attract and recruit the top talent, regardless of how far into their career they are.”
