The UK’s largest IT graduate employer, FDM Group, is to recruit a selection of talented students from 12 Universities across the country to fill marketing positions.
FDM Group is renowned for offering a unique combination of technical training and real commercial experience through its two-year graduate programme, which has seen the company scoop awards such as “The Best Technical Graduate Recruiter” of 2010.
The company has kick-started the IT careers of over 3,000 IT graduates and will be recruiting a further 1,000 University leavers this year alone.
In an effort to do so, FDM is currently on the hunt for exceptional second year students, with a flair for marketing, to take on some exciting part-time positions.
Not only will this enable FDM to reach out to students interested in pursuing a career in IT, but it will also allow the company to support students who have their sights set on a career in marketing.
Successful candidates will be responsible for promoting the FDM brand on campus through direct marketing and online activities and must possess the communication skills needed to do so.
Imagination, ambition and enthusiasm are all prerequisites for this role, as brand managers will be expected to drive exposure through new ideas and work on their own initiative.
This opportunity will provide students with valuable marketing experience and help to ensure that their CV’s stand out from the crowd after graduation.
FDM Marketing Manager Nabila Salem said, “At University I worked as a student brand manager and I’m so glad I did. Although I studied marketing at the time the role pushed me to discover what marketing a brand was really about in the real world. It also helped when it came to applying for jobs after University as the role provided me with commercial experience and highlighted my enthusiasm for the industry.”
Brand managers will be rewarded with a competitive salary and benefits and should they succeed in their role, they might even receive an offer from FDM to come on board after graduation!
And as the 11th fastest growing company in Europe, with offices in London, Brighton, Manchester, New York, Zurich, Frankfurt, Hong Kong and Luxemburg, the opportunities FDM can offer are certainly impressive.
To apply for this role please send a CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2nd September 2011.
NOTE TO CANDIDATES:
Student brand managers are expected to work for 5 hours per week.
