Tinie Tempah has teamed up with Barclays for the ‘work experience of a lifetime’ campaign – giving ambitious young people the chance to break into dream careers in sports and entertainment.
The award-winning rapper helped launch the 2016 campaign at the studios of Disturbing London – the music and fashion label he established 10 years ago – offering one person the opportunity to gain behind-the-scenes experience at his creative hub.
As well as the chance to be mentored by Tinie, the initiative, open to 18-24 year-olds, will see some of the biggest sport and entertainment brands open their doors for week-long placements – including The O2, Premier League, Shazam, Manchester City FC and British Athletics.
Tinie, who once confessed that his dream job was to be an accountant, said: “I’m really pleased to be working again with LifeSkills to offer young people the chance to secure the ultimate work experience opportunity at one of their favourite sports and entertainment brands.
“Confidence, dedication and a passion for what you want to do, are key if you want to work in your dream job and do what you love for a living. That’s why we’re also throwing open the doors of my business, Disturbing London, and invite someone who thinks they have what it takes to work in the entertainment business.
“I have so many projects coming up this year that I can’t wait to see what someone can bring to the table.”
