Indie full-service agency Thinkerbell has launched, Thrive@55, an 8-week fully-paid internship at the agency available to people over the age of 55.

The reason Thinkerbell is launching Thrive@55 is the growing age gap in the majority of companies operating in advertising, public relations and media in Australia, and indeed the world.

Only 5% of ad agency employees globally are over 50, with the median age for employees sitting at 38.

Thinkerbell is looking for "spritely" people over the age of 55 to bring their "magic, and experience" to the agency, across creative, account management, office management, finance, media, digital services, illustration, strategy and photography.

Applications for the internship are live today and will close on October 20, 2020. From there, applicants will be shortlisted and selected via an interview process, with applicants considered in both Thinkerbell’s North and South offices (Sydney and Melbourne).

Let’s go. What do you think?
