The Juice Academy relaunches its graduate scheme

Published: Thursday, 10 November 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Graduates will be offered the opportunity to work with a number of top companies in the North West following the relaunch of The Juice Academy.

The Juice Academy – which connect businesses with talented young people – made the move in order to try and tackle the digital skills gap.

The new scheme follows a hugely successful pilot graduate programme that ran in November last year, which saw 19 roles created in leading companies.

Graduates selected for the six-month programme will train whilst working with top companies, in order to equip them with the experience and knowledge required to take a step on the career ladder and secure full time employment.

The Juice Academy has been launched to try and increase youth employment whilst filling an industry-wide skills gap by training recent graduates and young people in the inner workings of social media.

Unique training opportunity

Sandy Lindsay MBE, founder and chair of Tangerine and The Juice Academy said: “The Juice Academy’s social media graduate programme is a unique training opportunity for both North West based businesses and graduates.”

As it stands, The Academy has trained more than 180 apprentices and will now be providing more highly educated young people into companies across the region.

The first stages on the career ladder can be difficult for recent graduates, so the course aims to provide practical experience and invaluable training.

Graduates will be able to earn money while they are learning throughout the course, gaining six months’ work experience as well.

Chosen candidates will play a vital role in social media and digital strategy within their allocated companies, putting the lessons learned from the training programme, which takes place at The Academy in Castlefield, into action.
