Worthing Digital Agency Fresh Egg is a finalist in Apprentice Employer of the Year Awards

Local digital marketing agency announced as Apprenticeship4England ‘Small Business Employer of the Year’ finalist

Digital Marketing Agency Fresh Egg is a finalist in a national apprentice employer of the year awards scheme after running a successful apprenticeship programme employing three young people from the area.

The Apprenticeships4England 2015 Training Provider and Apprentice Employer Awards, announced last week, recognise the contribution of companies helping young people into the workforce.

Worthing-based Fresh Egg is in the running for the Small Business Employer of the Year award category alongside the likes of leading healthcare service provider Medco Services.

Fresh Egg MD Adam Stafford said: “I am delighted that Fresh Egg is an apprentice employer of the year award finalist. We have always been passionate about offering young people the chance to progress their careers in the digital sector and the launch of our apprentice scheme has been really exciting.

“Being shortlisted for this award is a reflection on the commitment everyone at Fresh Egg has given to the scheme.”

Fresh Egg launched its first apprenticeship scheme last year in conjunction with the level three Social Media and Digital Marketing apprenticeship programme offered by Brighton-based apprenticeship provider, Dv8 Sussex.

Dv8 Sussex is a specialist creative and digital training college that has been providing young people in Sussex with personalised, industry-led training for over a decade.

Richard Freeman, Operations Manager for Dv8, said: “Fresh Egg has been a fantastic employer to work with, and has had a refreshing approach to taking on apprentices in the digital marketing world.

“We look forward to working with them, developing new pathways and employer-led training initiatives for many more years,” says Richard.

Fresh Talent

Fresh Egg’s commitment to the progression and future careers of young people in the local community led the company to establish an innovative and robust apprenticeship programme.

Fresh Egg invests heavily in the personal development of all its apprentices and provides them with the opportunity to undertake meaningful, challenging work in an inspiring, motivational and exciting office environment.

Innovative Apprenticeship Format

Fresh Egg made the decision to split its 12-month apprenticeship programme into three sections, allowing each apprentice to spend four months immersed in three digital marketing disciplines: technical SEO, biddable media and inbound marketing.

This structure has enabled Fresh Egg apprentices to gain knowledge and experience across the sector and to better inform their future careers in digital.

Each of the Fresh Egg digital marketing apprentices has become very well integrated into the company, demonstrating a clear understanding of the company goals and culture. Each is becoming proficient in digital marketing, gaining industry-recognised qualifications and continually showing improvements in terms of initiative, knowledge and work output.

Future Plans

With robust induction, training plans and documentation in place, Fresh Egg is well placed to run the apprenticeship programme each year and is committed to its sustainability. We look forward to working with future apprentices, developing employer-led training initiatives for many more years.
