As this is a Kickstart placement, you will need to be between the ages of 16 and 23, currently on Universal Credit (or in the process of going on to Universal Credit), and meet the eligibility criteria set out by the UK Government for the Kickstart Scheme.

We pride ourselves on being experts in our market and offering a consultative approach to our clients, whilst taking a genuine interest in the industries we help hire into.

  • We invest a lot of time and money into marketing our brand so that our consultants' jobs are made easier
  • We are always open to new ideas - no suggestion is too whacky, if you think it's a cool idea, we want to hear it!

About the Role:

As a Trainee Marketing Assistant, you will have the opportunity to work across a diverse range of operations that all contribute to overall business development. You will gain fundamental experience in developing and managing a brand, conducting market research that will be actioned on, and learn how to use key business tools such as a CRM and an email marketing platform. The skills you will gain as part of this position will provide you with a fantastic basis for a wide variety of careers in marketing and operations.

  • Any other manner of marketing and business development that arises!

About you:

  • Keen interests in marketing, business development, and technology
  • Strong written and verbal English
  • Comfortable in a sales environment (whilst you won't directly be involved in sales, recruitment is a heavily sales focused industry)
  • Able to be flexible
  • Welcomes independent learning and can identify problems and fix them, rather than waiting for the 'next' thing to do

So, if you are keen to kickstart your career in marketing and would welcome the opportunity to work in a start-up with a fun and dedicated team, then we would love to hear from you!
