We have high standards and we work hard and play hard. Our team of experts don’t just talk the talk – they all work with multi million pound businesses, creating new business and generating leads for them every day. Our clients and customers have one thing in common: they understand the importance of promoting their businesses in the digital environment. Our next generation of Saucy Horsies will become our Account Managers of the future – and get paid to learn essential skills for the workplace in the 21st Century along the way!
What’s involved in the job?
* You will learn how to create and implement social media, lead generation, email marketing, video marketing and affiliate marketing campaigns.
* You will learn how to plan what content is required for a digital marketing campaign.
* You will learn how to produce social media posts, video content, infographics, blogs, advertising content, display advertisements, online video banners, and other forms of online content. You will spend time both researching and writing content – from social media posts, a 500 word blog, a press release, a vlog script or treatment for a TV commercial. You’ll not be bored!
* You will learn about the delivery, management and reporting of campaigns.
* This role will have a technical element, learning how to implement, measure and analyse data on online platforms. We will teach you how to use video editing platforms, as well as other content generation software.
* The role is fast paced and will require concentration, absolute attention to detail, steadiness under pressure and a logical mind, as well as the ability to think creatively when it comes to content planning and video production.
* This role will teach the successful candidate how to carry out all aspects of a successful marketing campaign over the period of the apprenticeship, with well defined stages and expectations of what skills you will develop and by when.
You will spend time in our offices and also on location when we are filming. You will also attend off site training courses that we run for our clients, as well as your study periods for apprenticeship qualification. Most importantly, you’ll already have the right attitude ( we can’t teach you that) – you’ll be excited and curious to learn, you’ll be pro-active and you’ll not be afraid to take responsibility quickly.
What qualifications do you need?
* You should have GCSE Maths & English at C or above (preferably A/B in both) and 3 or 4 other subjects at least. YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO BE ABLE TO SPELL, CONSTRUCT A GRAMMATICALLY CORRECT SENTENCE AND BE ABLE TO RESEARCH A SUBJECT ONLINE. YOU’LL ALSO BE ABLE TO CHECK YOUR WORK FOR ERRORS & TYPOS. NON-NEGOTIABLE!
* You will also have a passion for learning – that means you’ll fit in here, and be fully rewarded by MAKING THE MOST OF the opportunities we make available to you. We want you to make your mark and we see you as part of our future team.
* You will have excellent communication skills and enjoy dealing with people both in person and on the telephone. You’ll be confident about talking to new people and about finding out how you can help them.
* Ideally you’ve already got good Excel & Word skills – if you have a basic knowledge of HTML coding then that’ll help you but we’ll teach you if you don’t. We’d also like to hear how you use the social media platforms at the moment.
* You will need a good eye for detail with a view to improving results on a daily basis.
You must love to write and you will need a solid understanding of good grammar, and excellent spelling & punctuation. We think that you’re probably a “searcher” at heart – always looking to learn new stuff and you may even be considering journalism as a career. In any case, you will enjoy crafting well written content and be able to show us examples of how you do that now…
You’ll also love dogs – Mac & Django Wolf spend much of their time in the office…
