University not for you? Don’t panic – Livity Marketing Apprenticeships are coming soon…
The traditional university route isn’t for everyone, and although you wouldn’t know it from the way the media groans on, there are opportunities out there for creative, entrepreneurial and passionate young people if they just know where to look.
In 2011, we piloted our Livity Digital Marketing Apprenticeships.
We placed young people in entry level marketing roles in big brands such as the Guardian, Barclays and TalkTalk. Our apprenticeships combined ‘earning and learning’ with a little bit of added Livity magic – such as specialist training from Google gurus and mentoring every step of the apprentice journey.
We wanted to break the cycle of “no experience equals no job”, “who you know” and “grad’s only”. So its great to report that since they graduated in July, our apprentices have had no shortage of opportunities – be it further employment, offers of internships in the music industry and membership of an exclusive speaker programme for up and coming advertising execs run from Google’s offices.
And even better, in September, we will be recruiting the next generation of Livity digital marketing apprentices!
Are you 18-24, and interested in marketing, media or entertainment? Perhaps you’ve just finished your A levels and aren’t sure where to go next…
