Person Specification for Trainee Placement

You need to be able to demonstrate a strong prior interest in this particular area of the digital industries – a degree in subjects such as e-business or marketing / digital marketing would be useful, but not essential as long as you can demonstrate the right level of understanding in the following:

•    SEO
•    PPC Management
•    Blogging
•    PR
•    Copywriting
•    Basic web development / HTML

This knowledge can have come from studies, work experience or voluntary activities – ideally a mix of all three and hands-on wherever possible.


To be eligible for this opportunity you must:
•    Be over 18
•    Reside in the Northwest of England (Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside)
•    Have LESS than 12 months’ PAID experience in the industry
•    Demonstrate a commitment to a career in the interactive and digital industries through a combination of education, training and work experience

Northwest Vision and Media are funding the succesful candidatetrainee. So the application process is via them.

Just to really underline the point, the people who we like to employ have got off their backside and already done something demonstrably digital. It may be running a blog. It may be running a small website. There are so many easy things that you can do online to develop skills. You wouldnt believe the amount of CVs we get where the applicant hasn’t done a thing online. I’m thinking this is turning into another blog post about how to get into the industry….
