Advertising creative apprenticeship

Develop strategic campaigns, or one-off pieces of communication, that meet a client brief.

As an advertising creative apprentice, you will craft high-impact campaigns and communications to the client’s specifications. You could work for an advertising, marketing, or branding agency, or for an in-house team for a large organisation. During the advertising creative apprenticeship, you’ll come up with advertising ideas and continually improve them based on feedback. With a strong understanding of differently industries and regulatory requirements, you’ll develop strategies to drive sales. You’ll learn about different audiences, present ideas, and manage creative differences to make sure your client is happy with the end result. Whether you’re suggesting improvements, managing your time effectively, or making ideas work across different platforms, you’ll need to be professional and show you can work independently. You’ll work with different teams and clients to refine ideas and make sure they align with your clients’ brand voices. You’ll need to be good at managing your time and sticking to budgets while still being creative.
