We Are Digital proudly presents

A fresh and flexible digital marketing traineeship programme over 4 months, from top experts and employers in the field

We have created a holistic and innovative programme comprising the best training course in digital marketing with work experience placements in fast-growth digital marketing agencies and other support to enable young people to kick start their careers in this exciting and dynamic sector.


By taking on a trainee you are helping a young person take their first steps on the road to employment in an exciting and cutting edge sector.  Aged 19-24 (or 25 if they have an Education Health and Care Plan) your trainee will gain valuable work experience of up to 100 hours. A traineeship is not paid but the young person may be able to carry on claiming their benefits and may be eligible for a bursary to cover essential expenses (such as child care) to enable them to do the traineeship.  

  • Ideally work experience is carried out in the work place, but with the current Covid-19 situation we can do remote work experience, provided that the work experience is valid.
  • You get a chance to see how good a potential young employee will be. Their work experience gives you a chance to assess them and decide whether you’d want to take them on if you have a vacancy.
  • You can claim £1000 for each trainee you take on up to a maximum of 10. - can you change this to No cost to the programme. PLUS you can now receive £1000 for each trainee you give a work experience placement to - up to a maximum of 10.
At the end of a traineeship there are five possible positive outcomes / routes:

You may wish to offer the trainee a job ( the work experience gives you a chance to find out how good an employee they are likely to be)

You may not currently have vacancies but you will give them an exit interview and a summary of their key skills and strengths and a reference

They may move to an apprenticeship

They may go on to further study (Maths and English)

They may go on to further study (higher level Digital Marketing)
