Digital Marketing Apprentices Join the Purplex Team

The Ascot Group continue to support the local community through their work with Weston College. They have introduced two new digital marketing apprentices, Sam and Harry, to join forces with the team for the next eighteen months to help gain their level three qualification in digital marketing. Over the next few months, both apprentices will spend a month in each of the departments to help inform their studies with industry experience and consolidate their understanding of all things marketing, before then deciding to work in a team that best suits their interests.

The wonderful addition of Sam and Harry have helped the Ascot Group reach the impressive one hundred employees milestone, and their contribution towards the growing list of clients is invaluable. MD and founder, Andrew Scott, recognises the addition of Sam and Harry as an example of the Ascot Group’s growing success. He comments:

“I’ve always believed we would build a world-class business in Weston-super-Mare, and it’s fantastic to see how we’re shaping the future of our region with the backing of Weston College. This apprenticeship scheme will help work towards our shared goal of creating unrivalled opportunities and hundreds of high value jobs in a town that offers little employment. It’s a privilege to help Weston College shape the next generation, and I’m excited to see all that Sam and Harry will go onto achieve with our fantastic work force.”

Both Sam and Harry have also highlighted how the apprenticeship has offered them a diverse range of opportunities, whilst allowing them the chance to remain in Weston close to family and friends. Sam highlights how: “I’ve always wanted a career in marketing and social media and believe that this is the best opportunity for me. It’s a relief to know how supported I am here. Learning about the industry first-hand is invaluable and the best thing I’ve done this year.”

For Harry, someone who has only ever worked outside as a contractor, the transition to the corporate world has been a welcomed change for him. Whilst he was concerned by his lack of experience at first, he shares how: “The Ascot Group have supported me every step of the way since starting this apprenticeship scheme. Everyone has been so patient and understanding. Both Andrew and Weston College have created a brilliant course and I’m enjoying each step of the process. To anyone considering an apprenticeship scheme, I’d say go for it. Don’t let lack of knowledge stop you!”.

The Ascot Group are thrilled to be supporting these two, and are excited to see what the future holds.
