Best in Class

Superunion offers help for businesses through the pro bono Best in Class intern programme. 

Our North America team have opened calls for briefs from businesses across America who are facing a challenge in the current climate, with work being delivered pro bono. The agency will work with businesses that are in need of strategic and creative support, with the chosen client having access to some of the sharpest and most creative minds and rising talent in the business through Superunion's intern programme, Best in Class, and their mentors. 

We are asking for businesses to submit their challenges, how they think Superunion can help them to address the problem and what change they want to see in the world. The deadline for applications is March 26th 2021. 

The chosen business will work with Superunion's Best in Class interns and mentors from June 7th - August 27th 2021. The project will be overseen by our senior leadership team and managed by rising stars within the agency, who will provide mentorship to new recruits and support them in creating world-class work. Previous projects completed by Best in Class cohorts include the award-winning brand refresh for Urban Justice Center, who need to raise brand awareness and increase donations to continue providing free legal support to marginalised citizens. 

As part of its Best in Class programme, Superunion has opened applications across North America in the hunt for smart, creative, and talented individuals with a desire to learn, work hard and contribute to award-winning work. The paid internship programme will involve real hands-on experience with clients, with interns splitting time between the Best in Class brand project and real-time studio assignments with Superunion team members. The programme will welcome interns fro across the country and will provide flexible working options. 

Jennifer Volmer, Co-Head of Strategy at Superunion NYC, said: "The last year has been extremely challenging for businesses across America, with each brand facing its own unique challenges. Our Best in Class program is a way in which we at Superunion can help the chosen brand overcome some of the challenges they have faced - during or even before the pandemic - at no cost, all while supporting the next generation of inspiring talent. We want to hear from all businesses, no matter the sector or brand challenge, and we look forward to seeing what amazing work this years' cohort produces."
