Q&A with our Digital Marketing Apprentice, Olivia

Chat with our Digital Marketing Apprentice, Olivia! With Olivia’s L3 Digital Marketing Apprenticeship with Burnley College coming to an end, we thought it would be a great idea to chat with her about her experience. 

Q – What made you decide to pursue an apprenticeship in Digital Marketing?

A – 

An apprenticeship in Digital Marketing could provide me with on-the-job learning and practice, as well as exposure to experienced marketers. In contrast to a university degree in marketing, as a Digital Marketing Apprentice, I would constantly practice my learning in real-life work situations, refining skills and knowledge along the way. The future of marketing is digital. Moreover,  as different platforms and technologies are introduced, the digital world is constantly evolving. Having the chance to work in a fast-paced, ever-changing field was important to me.

Q – Why did you choose a Digital Marketing Apprenticeship at Root Fifty-Two?

A – 

It was obvious after my interview that I would enjoy working at Root Fifty-Two! The team seemed very friendly and welcoming.  I also appreciated the fact that they are a local Burnley business supporting other Burnley businesses in the area. It was a complete joy to get the job and work with Harriet, the Digital Lead, and the rest of the team.
