Helping Lincoln.

The Identity Agency is here to help local students.

At the Identity Agency, we appreciate the difficulties that students face in a job market where businesses seek experience that students are graduates simply don't have. For example, there are entry-level marketing jobs that are requiring two years worth of experience, even for university graduates.
We're here to get students ready for a career in the marketing sector and deliver relevant experience in a range of areas. On the scheme, students are given teaching and experience to introduce them to content creation, website design, SEO, social media management, email marketing, and graphic design.

Find out more about our mentorship scheme.

How does the work experience work?

You will be entitled to at least two weeks of unpaid work experience at the Identity Agency’s Lincoln office each year until you start your career. Mentees are given the option to extend this to four weeks, but are required to take at least one week per year. You are in control of which dates you set your work experience for. In addition to this, you’ll also be able to control which projects you work on, so that you’re learning skills that will directly benefit the career you’d like to begin.

What practical experience will I get?

It really varies depending on what you want to learn. However, during your experience, you’ll familiarise yourself with software such as Photoshop (and the rest of the Adobe suite), WordPress, Canva, Hootsuite, Audacity and Mailchimp. You’ll learn about the importance of brand identity and inbound marketing.

Will I get the chance to network?

We’re going to introduce you to our local business community so that you can forge connections with a variety of businesses. When we are attending networking events or exhibitions, you’ll always be welcome to come along with us.

How can you help me start a career?

First, we’ll help you gain experience in areas you’re interested in. Secondly, we’ll help you stack out your CV. Finally, we’ll act as your reference and sing your praises to any potential employer.

Will I receive any certifications?

Yes! We’re going to get you officially certified in both data protection (which is a great way to help your CV stand out, because the GDPR fines are now so high!), and inbound marketing. Your CV will be packed!
