The Identity Agency’s Mentorship Scheme

Lincoln University Medical School Building

We’re helping Lincoln students prepare for a career in digital marketing

It’s difficult to get great quality work experience. That’s where our new mentorship scheme comes in. We’re helping students who either live, study, or are from Lincoln. Student will gain experience, support, and local connections. The Identity Agency hopes to give mentees a serious advantage when applying for a future digital marketing role.

The difficulties in finding work experience:

Roles I’ve seen online require me to have at least a year of relevant experience in marketing. My degree has helped me understand marketing theory, but I haven’t been able to put it into practice. Having this opportunity will give students the ability to gain real-world experience – Charlie Cheyette, student.
