Once we have confirmed your placement, you will come to our office in Southampton at 9:30am with the day finishing at 5:30pm. We are conveniently based in the centre of Southampton and are within walking distance from the train station with easy routes and access to the M27.
Depending on what department you are working in, you will be set tasks throughout the day to complete within a given timeframe. Although ICAAL have a range of different clients, we primarily focus on the home improvement market. You’ll be expected to become familiar with the jargon!
We do our best to accommodate as many people as possible, but have some criteria you’ll need to meet before being accepted onto the ICAAL Academy. We can only take on students who are over the age of 16 but most often cater to those over 18 who are currently studying at university. Our programme isn’t available for those already in full-time work in a similar field.
Our programme is designed for those who have a good technical ability in their field but would massively benefit from real life work experience. If you’re interested in a copywriting placement, you would need to be studying a relevant qualification and would need displayable proof of your writing ability. For graphic design placements, you would need intermediate knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.
