Leading offshore law firm Appleby has become the first organisation to sign up to a new marketing apprenticeship scheme launched by the Department of Economic Development and The Marketing Partnership.
The apprenticeship scheme places young adults who have a passion for marketing with a business to give them hands on experience within the industry.
The successful candidate will begin the placement in July and will complete a one year paid placement working in Appleby’s Douglas office four days a week, with one study day to work towards the Chartered Institute Marketing Foundation Certificate in Marketing (Level 3 and 4).
Faye Moffett, Managing Partner at Appleby’s Isle of Man office, said: “This scheme is a fantastic opportunity to encourage young people to continue their education in the Isle of Man. We are committed to employing new trainees across many areas of the business and encouraging them to develop new skills and build experience which will be beneficial throughout their career.
“As a leading law firm which operates across multiple jurisdictions the apprentice who comes to work with us will have a wonderful opportunity to learn from, and grow with, our busy global marketing team.”
Director of The Marketing Partnership Heather Blackley added: “An integral part of all successful businesses is a good marketing strategy. This scheme was established to give young people the opportunity to learn more about the marketing industry while gaining experience and knowledge on the job and working towards the foundation certificate at the same time.
“It’s great to see Appleby become the first organisation to get involved in the scheme to help young people obtain qualifications on the Island. I’m sure the selected apprentice will have a fascinating time with the team at Appleby.”
The scheme is open to all school leavers, university graduates and young people looking for a career change.
