What is brightminds?
Every 6 months or so, we go out on the hunt for fresh, diverse talent. Our brightmind scheme was built to develop those who are interested in a career in digital marketing, want a taste of agency life, and want to dip their toe in our digital ocean.
This is a paid, full-time position for 9 months at our agency with a view to become permanent after completion.
What does the scheme look like?
Our scheme is all about becoming familiar with all aspects of digital marketing. It is a 9 month programme centred around getting you to grips with our channels, platforms and digital lingo.
You’ll spend time with each department:
- Paid Search
- Social Media
- Content Marketing
- Data & Analytics
- CRO & Web Psychology
- Digital Strategy
- Web design & development
And you’ll have a personalised training programme to follow from day one.
You’ll work closest with our Digital Strategists: these are our digital experts – they have a well-rounded understanding of all channels and will be your mentors throughout the scheme.
Who is the ideal candidate?
We are education and industry agnostic – we don’t care what you’ve studied, where you’ve worked or if you were an A-grade student all of your life.
From Medieval Art History to Mechanical Engineering, from radio journalism to banana picking – our team has a variety of skills, backgrounds and a whole suite of random talents, qualifications and interests. It’s what makes us better at what we do.
We just need to see that:
- You’ve got a genuine interest in digital marketing
- You’re looking to start your career or retrain as a digital expert
- You have strong literacy and numeracy skills
- You’re passionate about the future of digital
- You’re excited about joining a growing agency
- You’re a fast learner
What happens afterwards?
95% of our digital interns have gone on to become full-time members of the team. After the completion of your internship, we’ll sit down to discuss your progress, your favourite parts of the scheme, and which team you’d like to work with.
We are driven by empathy
We are the digital agency with Mind at heart. Empathy is our core value. We apply empathetic thinking to everything we do – from our marketing strategies to how we treat our team.
We believe that these 3 pillars motivate each one of us:
- Autonomy: Our desire to direct our own lives. In short: “You probably want to do something interesting, let me get out of your way!”
- Mastery: Our urge to get better at things we like to do.
- Purpose: The feeling and intention that we can make a difference in the world.
At Digivate, our goal is to create a work environment in which all of us can thrive. We want to empower our team by making sure they know what to do and why they’re doing it.
People with different cultures, perspectives and experiences are at the heart of the way Digivate works. We want to recruit, develop and retain the most talented people, regardless of their background.
We seek to develop a work environment where we treat all employees as individuals, fairly and in a consistent way. We strive to create a safe and inclusive atmosphere and promote culture of respect, actively challenging discrimination should it ever arise.
