Learning digital marketing is hard – there is a huge amount of information available online and it’s a fast changing landscape. The programme structure ensures that students learn the right things in the right order, at the right pace, and makes sure learners are consistently given interesting real-life projects to work on with their peers, ensuring they don’t lose motivation.

Digital Companies seeking digital marketing talent

Digital enterprises in Jersey can apply to the course if they want one of their existing employees to learn digital marketing skills to boost their business. Companies looking for a full time digital marketeer can also apply to source a suitable fit between individual candidates taking the course and their company.

Recommended Background/Entry Criteria

There are no minimum entry requirements. We look for applicants who are passionate about digital marketing and would like to pursue it as their chosen career; or we are seeking existing tech industry employees who will be providing additional benefit to their companies. We will not accept applicants from within existing PR/marketing agencies. We don’t expect applicants to have worked in the industry before but we are looking for learners who are genuinely passionate about this field and are able to demonstrate their passion through examples of projects, self-learning and experience.

There will be a short list of candidates drawn up, followed by an interview process to choose the individuals who will sit the course. It is therefore in your best interests to ensure your application is detailed enough to get through to the second stage. We anticipate this course being heavily over-subscribed.
