    No Turning Back 2020 Launches Free Early Careers Job Site

    Promoting diversity & inclusion for the marketing, PR & sports marketing industry

    No Turning Back 2020 announces the launch of the No Turning Back 2020 Jobs Zone specifically for black, Asian and minority ethnic applicants.  

    The Job Zone is welcomed by the sectors’ leading professional bodies including the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), The Advertising Association, The Marketing Society,  The European Sponsorship Association (ESA) and the Chartered Institute of PR (CIPR).

    The No Turning Back 2020 Jobs Zone is for Early Careers only – roles for salaries up to £30,000  will showcase school and college leaver permanent trainee roles, apprenticeships, paid internships and graduate entry job opportunities across multiple inclusive employers.

    Amanda Fone, Co-Founder, No Turning Back 2020 said: "Last year was one of the most challenging years for school/college leaver and graduates to find trainee and entry level roles across the Marketing, PR & Sports Marketing sectors. Since 2016 we have been working hard to encourage more 17-23 year old professionals from black, Asian, minority ethnic communities to consider a career in our sector. We are determined not to lose momentum and need to get the message out to young people that despite COVID, companies in our sector are keen to attract talent at entry & 2nd jobber level."

    Organisations will be able to advertise their Early Careers vacancies at no charge so long as they can evidence their commitment and more importantly their action plans for the Recruitment, Inclusion, Retention and Promotion of diverse talent.

    Entertainment  & sports brands, governing bodies, FMCG, consumer tech, telco, financial services, home entertainment, Advertising, PR and Digital Marketing agencies will be advertising their communications, PR, marketing and sports marketing opportunities.
