Space & Time offers a LaunchPad into digital with new training programme
February 15, 2022
Growth marketing agency Space & Time is today unveiling LaunchPad, a new entry-level training programme designed to develop skilled digital marketing professionals and launch their careers at the agency.
The programme begins with a comprehensive three-month training schedule focused on providing a strong grounding in the fundamentals of digital marketing, including organic and paid search, paid social and programmatic advertising. LaunchPad will also develop strategic thinking, client experience capabilities as well as technical and soft skills. After three months, recruits will be integrated into teams, working closely with experienced colleagues, and continuing their own personal digital platform certifications.
To begin with, LaunchPad will offer four, salaried, full-time positions. There are plans to evolve the programme with subsequent cohorts and to develop community links as well as relationships with educational institutions in and around the agency’s office locations: London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Reigate. LaunchPad marks the next phase of the agency’s award-winning Space Academy, a bespoke, internal training programme for employees.
Lyle Kercher, associate director of agency development at Space & Time comments: ‘The programme offers individuals an opportunity to get their break in the industry, irrespective of whether they have any experience in marketing or whether they are a college-leaver, graduate or career-changer. At Space & Time, we are passionate about nurturing talent and building the best possible team as we continue to grow.’
Heather Connearn, executive director at Space & Time adds: ‘As with every business and especially in marketing, good people sit at the very heart of what makes us successful. A perfect storm of Covid-19, working from home and Brexit has provided what we believe is easily our industry’s biggest post-pandemic challenge. It’s now more essential than ever that we invest time and resource in identifying and developing the next generation of digital talent.’
