RAPP confirmed as sponsors of DMA Talent: Summer school 2019


DMA Talent: Summer school is back for its 16th year and will see another cohort of 30 aspiring marketers descend on DMA House for the opportunity to connect with employers and discover the wide variety of roles available in the industry.

We’re delighted to announce creative agency, RAPP, as the sponsors.

Taking place 8 to 12 July 2019, students will hear from industry experts and put their skills to the test, tackling a brief set by one of RAPP’s clients, Virgin Media. RAPP will brief the students on the first day at their London headquarters. As they work in teams throughout the week, they’ll get support from members of the DMA network who will come in to offer mentorship.

On the final day of the week, they’ll pitch their responses to members of the RAPP and Virgin Media team, giving them an authentic taste of agency life.

Tania Feeley, Managing Partner at RAPP said:

"RAPP’s been an active participant in DMA Talent: Summer school for over a decade and hope to be for the next 10 years. We don’t need an excuse to shout about the epic work we create and the amazing RAPPsters who create it, and who better to showcase it to than the future stars of the advertising world! DMA Talent consistently create talented cohorts of the best and brightest marketing graduates. We’re always enthused and privileged to provide them with more insight into Agency life and wherever possible offer them permanent opportunities at RAPP!"
