Job Description

Do you dream of working in the creative / marketing industry? Can you see yourself running great campaigns and making a splash in the world of social? How about project managing the next most talked-about TV ad?

It’s an exciting industry but it can be hard to break into.

Until now. Because Marketing Debuts, the apprenticeship scheme by The Industry Club is all about changing that.

Get hands on

Marketing Debuts wants to get keen individuals into happening agencies who’ll give you first-hand experience of the world of marketing. You’ll spend 13 months there, getting knee deep in stuff like community management where you’ll learn the secrets of social media or project management – managing campaigns and getting stuck in across delivery.

Agency life isn’t for the faint-hearted. It’s fast-paced, busy and varied. But there’ll never be a dull moment because you’ll get to work on exciting accounts and help teams do great work for their clients.

Get the best of all worlds

To set you up for success, your programme will start with an employability bootcamp. This is where you’ll learn about agency life and your role within it. You’ll also at this stage get to meet your fellow apprentices on The Industry Club scheme. They’ll be placed at other companies, yet still be part of your ‘cohort’.

You’ll also have a buddy and/or mentor who will support you throughout the programme.


You’ll spend a fifth of your 13-month placement studying with The Industry Club. Here, you’ll learn the foundations of excellence in your role, which you can then apply to real life scenarios back at the agency. Marketing Debuts will give you the time and resources to hone your skills and put them into practice. It also means you’ll benefit from working closely with a leading agency (it could also be a major brand’s in-house marketing department), while being mentored by experienced trainers who specialise in their areas.

Plus, the skills you’ll gain over the apprenticeship are easily transferable, so they’ll set you up for a great career and a world of exciting options as you progress.

Get creative and apply now

Ideally, you’ll have left school in the last two years and be inspired by a career in the creative industry. We’re more interested in your creativity and passion to work in an agency than your educational achievements. If you don’t already have them, we’ll work with you to get your English and Maths GCSEs during the programme. The assessment process is based on your motivation to succeed and creativity rather than educational background.

To apply, get your CV over to katie@theindustryclub.co.uk with a cover letter telling her why this opportunity is for you. But don’t stop there. We’d also love to know what you think is a brilliant example of brand activity or a campaign on social, and why. How you share this with us completely up to you. It could be a video, a presentation, a written piece – the only criteria is that it’s creative! Best of luck!
