At the start of February, we were delighted to be asked to exhibit at the Newbury College Careers Event to speak about The Generate UK Marketing Academy.
The event gave us a chance to discuss recruitment opportunities with talented students. The event is a great initiative from Newbury College to help students discover and build upon their passions to begin a successful career.
Prior to the students arriving, Newbury College introduced all of the exhibitors. This gave us a chance to speak to the other organisations in attendance and it was great to see other businesses supporting young people.
There were a variety of companies from a mix of industries in attendance, such as Vodafone, Xtrac, and Norma Group.
Through our conversations with both teachers and students, we were able to better understand the academic landscape and provide recommendations on what could benefit students in terms of knowledge and skills.
At Generate UK we want to enable students who have a passion for digital marketing, design or web development to explore their skills and kickstart their career by working with us. We are looking to work with students that are keen to learn and are excited to start their professional journey.
The Newbury College Careers event gave us this opportunity as it meant we could speak to passionate students who showcased their work and their achievements.
We took the opportunity to introduce the newly launched Generate UK Marketing Academy, allowing students to work with us on a flexible basis as part of their study or as a work placement. We believe that the Generate UK Academy is the perfect way for students to increase their knowledge and grow from a business perspective.
What would a student gain from getting involved?
Work experience with Generate UK enables students to test out the marketing, design and development career, but there are more benefits to gain from spending time with us. Here are just a few of them:
- An opportunity to try out what you are learning in the real world
- Developing skills that will expand your learning
- Build confidence
- Improve soft skills – communication, organisation, professionalism, time management and many more
- Network with professionals in the field
- Experience on your CV
All in all, we believe the Newbury College Careers Event was a great success and we hope to see this grow and evolve next year.
