Role Overview – Marketing 

The time will be divided up into 80% time working, and 20% of the time studying.

Throughout your time as a Marketing Degree Apprentice at Zenopa you will be exposed to a wide breadth of marketing areas, picking up more responsibility year on year. The marketing team plays a big part in Zenopa's growth, as we look to expand internationally. In year one you will get the chance to work on; managing social media accounts, assisting with company events and conferences, new stories and blog, SEO rankings and the development of our website. Once you have the fundamentals, you will than have the chance to work in mailer campaigns for our candidates and clients, sourcing merchandise and being a key support point for the sales team. In year three, you will be responsible for formulating the marketing budget and strategy, growing into a senior position and potentially even mentoring new staff. 

As a marketing apprentice you are fully supported throughout your journey at Zenopa. Once you have signed the contract you will be given a designated buddy to help the transition out of school and into the working environment. On your first day you will meet both a line manager and mentor who will cover; Weekly catch up meetings, monthly progress reviews, PDP's and appraisals. This will give you the opportunity to align your career aspirations both inside and outside of work by breaking them down per month into more achievable, tangible steps to reach the end goal.

In 2023 Brad completed his apprenticeship;
"Zenopa was the best transfer from Sixth Form I could have ever chosen. Gaining a university degree and 3+ years of work experience gives me a head start compared to those from university who only understand the theoretical aspect. A great benefit of working on the Zenopa marketing team is that you will gain exposure to many marketing tasks, which is excellent for building your CV and providing significant marketing experience."
