WEXO placements using the STEP schemes don’t just work for people who are entering the working world. Andy Stafford had already worked in the music industry and decided to go back to university. His account here shows how someone with significant experience managed to finance an internship that then turned into a full time role:
“After working at an independent record label for two years I decided to take a short hiatus from the music industry to complete my post-graduate studies. Initially I was apprehensive about the prospect leaving paid work to re-enter academia but thanks to WEXO I can safely say it was a decision that’s paid off. Upon completing my course WEXO helped me fit back into the music business seamlessly. I was lucky enough to be given a role within the music division of Platinum Rye Entertainment, a company that facilitates music licencing as well as sourcing tracks for use in TV, Radio and Online advertising. It is an arena that I’ve always wanted a role in, where my duties include providing music searches, negotiating music licences and liaising with advertising producers and creatives.
After my internship period ended I am very pleased to say that I am now a full time member of staff at Platinum Rye Entertainment.
Thank you WEXO.”
