EnterPrise IG executive creative director Glenn Tutssel has initiated a £6000 student programme with four UK design schools to help build the consultancy’s talent pool for the future.
Under the scheme, Enterprise IG will vote £1500 per year each to four colleges: Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design at Dundee University, Cardiff School of Art & Design, Kingston University and Falmouth College of Arts. The colleges will give £500 of the fund to each of their top three students, who will be offered two-to-three-week paid placements with the London branding giant during their courses.
Tutssel sees the move as helping to boost creativity in the WPP-owned consultancy, which is part of his remit in the new position (DW 10 March).
‘I want to build an award-winning culture, starting with the student programme. I am a great advocate of new talent,’ he says.
