Got a passion for social and digital marketing?


Got a passion for social and digital marketing? Well, imagine getting paid for doing the stuff you love.

Platform81 are joining forces with the team at The Juice Academy to hire a Digital Marketing Apprentice for their team.

So what is The Juice Academy?

There is a huge digital skills gap in the UK, limiting the sector’s growth and prosperity AND there are thousands of bright young people out there, many of whom – due to the changes in university fees – might decide the apprenticeship route is more attractive than ever.

Couple this with the fact that these young people ‘live’ online more than ever before, and  the UK’s first workplace-based digital marketing apprenticeship (The Juice Academy) was born.

The course is the brainchild of Tangerine, a Manchester-based integrated communications consultancy committed to supporting the next generation of ‘bright young things’ into the marketing profession. The consultancy, with the support of the National Apprenticeship Service and some of the North West’s leading marketing teams (inc JW Lees, Pets at Home, BetFred) and creative agencies (inc BJL, MediaCom, MagneticNorth) manages the development and delivery of the course.

Businesses get the opportunity to invest in budding talent across the North West, and young people have a chance to work with some of the UK’s biggest brands including Social Chain, UNILAD, Jump Nation Trampoline Park, Manchester Airport, AMC Cinemas and now Platform81!

As an apprentice with Platform81 you will be given the opportunity to gain further qualifications and progress your career in a varied and challenging digital marketing role. Sounds great, right? Take a look at the full role here

Alec, Director at Platform81 said, “As a digital marketing & design agency offering a full digital service, we think there’s plenty of potential for an apprentice to join our team and really get to grips with all aspects of digital marketing. With many of our team, it was about getting that first foot in the industry door after completing university, which is why we’re looking to offer this opportunity to someone fresh from school or college. From Web Design and build to Social Media and PPC, we’ll be looking for an enthusiastic, bright, self-motivated individual to join our team in Stockport!”

  • Principles of coding
  • Basic marketing principles
  • Customer relationship management (CRM)
  • Customer relationship marketing
  • Digital Marketing campaigns
  • Digital and Social Media Strategies
