Digital Marketer

On a digital marketer apprenticeship course, you’ll use online and social media platforms to design, build and implement campaigns and drive customer sales.

A digital marketer creates, develops, and executes digital campaigns to increase customer acquisition, engagement, and retention across online and social media platforms.

As an apprentice digital marketer, you will work as part of a team and be in charge of some of the most fundamental elements of a larger marketing plan or campaign.

You’ll follow marketing briefs and instructions and report to a digital marketing manager, marketing manager, or IT manager.

It is necessary to study and understand search marketing, search engine optimisation, email marketing, online analytics and metrics, mobile apps, and pay-per-click advertising and have good written and verbal communication skills.

This apprenticeship qualifies you for entry into the IT technician registration. After finishing the course, you will be eligible to apply for registration.
