Internships in Marketing in the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is a financial and cultural hub, and home to many of the world’s most dynamic global cities.
If you want to travel around Europe while getting a foot in the door, internships in marketing in the United Kingdom are the perfect chance to do so. Of course, the marketing field is extremely competitive and constantly changing. Top marketing professionals are always learning – from changing search algorithms to new social media platforms. Professional experience is absolutely key when it comes to finding a full-time job in the future. In addition to developing key technical skills, interns begin to build an essential network within the world of marketing.
Here are just a few example roles our Digital Marketing Interns have taken before.
Many organizations across a wide range of industries rely on a blog to reach their partners and customers. Marketing interns gain experience creating and managing an editorial calendar, conducting research, and writing blog posts. Corporate blogs are often used to convey company culture, recruit new talent, and even advertise new products. Writing and search engine management skills are essential in the field of marketing. Blog management is an incredibly valuable experience that has wide applications around the career field.
In today’s increasingly online world, social media management is one of the most valuable skillsets a young professional can possess. Most major organizations, both corporate and nonprofit, rely on various social media platforms to reach new audiences. Instagram ads and TikTok videos can have an incredibly wide reach, and even major news outlets are using them to great effect. In many cases, interns are the ones who get their organization’s accounts off the ground.
Social media skills are becoming increasingly important in the business world with each passing year. From Instagram ads to LinkedIn posts, the opportunities for a business to make its presence known online are endless. Interns are likely to gain experience in content creation, calendar management, and advertising.
Both live and online events can be incredibly effective marketing tools. Event management interns assist with planning and executing events from start to finish. That often includes selecting venues or determining whether an online event is more logical. For many industries, major events are annual occurrences and dictate the direction of the field for the following year. As an intern, events are the perfect opportunity to network and develop a strong understanding of the industry.
Whether you already have design skills or are hoping to learn them, the ability to create appealing graphics is one of the most desired skills in the marketing industry. Graphic design interns use programs like PhotoShop or Illustrator to create promotional materials for both web and print. Projects may include designing Instagram ads, logos, pamphlets, and more. Of course, one of the best parts of a design internship is the opportunity to develop an impressive portfolio of professional work.
The marketing industry
Marketing is one of the most popular degrees and career fields for students and young professionals around the world. Marketing skills are needed in every organization, industry, and country. Global marketing firms and boutique branding agencies alike are in high demand. That being said, gaining entry to this competitive field can be challenging. Successful marketing professionals possess essential skills ranging from social media to branding, and are able to adjust along with the ever-changing industry.
