We are seeking to recruit talented and motivated assessors across a range of standards in the creative sector, including Junior Advertising Creative.
Junior Advertising Creative
Junior Advertising Creatives are responsible for originating surprising, brilliant, exciting, ingenious concepts and ideas. This can be a matter of opinion, so they need the tenacity and resilience to bounce back from setbacks, constructive feedback and also embrace criticism of their ideas. They are conscious of deadlines, budget restrictions and brief requirements. (There are two types of brief - the marketing business brief and a focused creative brief used to inform creatives of the task.) They usually have a number of creative projects running at the same time but at different stages and are responsible for making sure they all meet their deadlines. This is an occupation where Junior Advertising Creatives can be their self, introvert or extrovert, because it is the ideas which matter.
In different organisations the job title may vary and may include creative technologist, junior art director, junior brand creator, junior copywriter, junior creative, junior creative writer.
- Project including slide deck, presentation and questions: There are two components to this assessment method: an outcome component, which is the slide deck summarising the project work, plus a presentation and questions component to ensure the apprentice is assessed against the KSBs mapped to this assessment method
- Professional discussion underpinned by a portfolio of evidence: A two way discussion with our assessor lasting 60 minutes, there will be a minimum of 10 questions that will provide coverage of the mapped KSBs.
More information on this standard can be found on the AIM website
