On 17th March, Crowd attended The Careers and Apprenticeship Show at the BIC in Bournemouth, hosted by Silicon South with fellow agencies April6, Adido and BBD Boom.
This event showcased businesses and opportunities for careers and apprenticeships for young adults in the South West area. Our Web Developer Intern, Alex Veats, represented Crowd and educated GCSE and Sixth Form students about exciting careers in marketing and the work of Silicon South and marketing agencies in the South.
Alex said “A lot of students were very interested in the front end development work and the social media marketing that Crowd does. Most of the young adults didn't know what an agency was before talking to us but by the end, a lot of them said they were very interested in pursuing a career.”
Crowd have always maintained a strong relationship with academic centres offering both careers guidance and lecturing on courses at local universities. We proud that some of our brightest stars were recruited direct from university and we've seen them flourish as part of our global team.
We look forward to seeing what talent may join the Crowd team after these events and hope to inspire many more young adults in the future.
