Fast-growing marketing agency Digital Media Team has launched an Academy, helping to provide opportunities for young people to move into the digital sector.

The Academy was launched as a way to offer young people a helping hand into a competitive industry, following a tough 18 months due to the ongoing pandemic.

The first wave of the Academy kicked off on August 23rd, with the arrival of six apprentices who will be joining the agency across a range of departments.

One apprentice will join each department - paid social, PPC, email marketing, design, content and web development.

The apprentices will be trained up by DMT staff, giving them an incredible opportunity to get to grips with some of the most crucial marketing tools.

DMT worked closely with Apprentify to shortlist candidates for each position. 

DMT Director Darren Hughes spoke of this exciting milestone in the agency’s journey: “During the pandemic we have had to change our business to be adaptive and proactive to allow us to continue to grow. Also, with huge uncertainty around employment, the younger generation leaving school, college and university have an additional hurdle when trying to gain employment, especially if they lack the experience many businesses are looking for.

“The academy allows us to offer the apprentices first class training with one of the UK’s leading agencies to help young people take their first steps of their career into the digital world and hopefully give them the boost they need to achieve their goals.”

Business Development Manager Harley added: 

“Apprentify have been amazing to work with, they have really helped us find the right apprentices for each department within the company. 

“I have been at the company since the very beginning and I have watched us grow so much. It’s amazing to see and I am so proud of everyone and everything that we have achieved! 

“The founders Darren & Andy gave us all a chance to learn whilst we work all those years ago and it's so exciting to watch the new apprentices be given that same opportunity six years down the line.”

Mabelle Zissou, Recruitment Executive from Apprentify, said: “We had the pleasure of working with DMT to fulfil their academy requirements for digital marketing and junior content production.

“We strongly believe in their vision for the academy. The digital biosphere is a continuously growing sector which provides an abundance of career opportunities for the new generation to utilise a skillset that comes naturally to them.

“Apprentify looks forward to supporting DMT with their Digital Academy.”

The Academy launch sees the agency’s headcount rise once again up to 41, DMT plans to take on more apprentices once the first wave have undergone their thorough training.
