It’s exciting times at Padua Communications as we are expanding and looking to take on a digital marketing apprentice at our office in Fordingbridge. We are using Intequal as our training provider and you can find out more about the role on its website.

Nicky Rudd, Managing Director at Padua Communications, says: “We’ve thought long and hard about this role but feel it’s the right time. Since the pandemic, it’s harder for younger people to get into the workplace, so we want to give someone who is passionate about marketing and comms a chance. If you’re interested in joining a small agency with some big clients and a family-orientated culture, we want to hear from you.

Personal Qualities

We know this is a role for someone starting their career so you might not have a lot of previous experience but if you have a passion for or any combination of these skills, we’d be keen to hear from you.

Skills Required

  • Solid interest in PR, social media and marketing disciplines
  • Good listener, creative, proactive thinker
  • Positive mindset
  • Can drive with a UK driving licence
  • Excellent administrative skills
  • Attention to detail and exceptional grammar skills
  • Solution focused
  • Well organised
  • Deadline driven
  • Good time management
  • Good interpersonal skills
  • Quick learner with a passion for learning

Reporting directly to the MD, this role is supported by both business owners – we will be offering guidance and support and be on hand to work with you.

Nicky adds: “We are looking for a self-starter who can soak up new ideas and techniques like a sponge. You will have a fantastic enthusiasm for today’s technologies and tools, and be interested in keeping up to date with modern technology, love all things comms-related – digitally, in print, on TV, and beyond.

“We are looking for a creative thinker, who is pro-active with exceptional organisation, diplomacy and time management skills. Most importantly, you will share and respect our values (which are caring, creative, resourceful, trusted, proactive, ethical, positive, and curious) and we are particularly looking for someone who is passionate about sustainability too. You are good with people, be that in person, on the phone, on Zoom or by email.
