The Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) launched a scheme this week which will give York students an opportunity to access exclusive graduate internships. ATG is the largest owner/operator of theatres in the UK with 39 venues, an internationally recognised theatre producer and a leader in theatre ticketing services through ATG Tickets.
Professor Mike Cordner, Head of Theatre in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television, commented, “This is an invaluable link, which will offer a unique entry point for the successful candidates into a highly competitive industry.”
Susan McGuire, Head of HR at the company, added “This exciting connection with York will enable a select number of graduates to experience our diverse range of creative, production and management activities.” The scheme will be named after Greg Dyke, the University’s Chancellor and Chairman of ATG.
