I am struggling to find apprenticeships in marketing and events in Cornwall
Posted: 01/09/15 by Chelsie Smith
I have a keen interest in the marketing and events industry. I have just completed A levels and would much rather go along the apprenticeship route than going to university. I am struggling to find apprenticeships in the area I live (Cornwall) Is there any other paths I can take, as I am struggling to decide what to do. Thanks Kind regards
I'm afraid Cornwall is a bit out on a limb when it comes to that particular industry. There will of course be opportunities but they are likely to be few and far between.
You might need to consider relocating to a major city such as London, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham etc.
If that isn't an option then consider going for a job with a firm that has a marketing function so you have the opportunity of a "sideways" move.
There definitely are apprenticeships to be had in that field but be aware that many young recruits enter via a degree course.
You might find some of these current vacancies of interest:
One final point. It is sometimes a good idea to be proactive and get in touch with apprenticeship training providers as they might have a useful contact in the industry.
