Megan Black shares her new apprenticeship journey with UMi

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week 2024 (5 to 11 February), we are sharing the stories of some of the team who started their journeys as apprentices. Megan started her career in the Travel Industry and after growing a passion for social media marketing and website design, she has began her digital marketing apprenticeship journey with UMi in January 2023. 

Why did you decide to do an apprenticeship at UMi?

I was looking to start a new career in Digital Marketing when I came across this apprenticeship, it sounded perfect for me!

What does your apprenticeship involve?

My apprenticeship involves technical training & workplace projects in multiple aspects of Digital Marketing, concluding with exams.

What skills do you think the apprenticeship will teach you and how is it helping you to get to know UMi as a company? 

I believe the apprenticeship will teach me skills in all elements of Digital Marketing, along with how these are implemented within a business. This well help me get to know UMi and how they use these elements day to day.

How do you see your career will progressing when you complete your apprenticeship? 

Once I gain the skills and knowledge of Digital Marketing from my apprenticeship, I hope to progress even further within UMi. In 5 years I would like to be a skilled and creative Digital Marketer.

What would you say to anyone considering an apprenticeship?

I would say to do it! It’s a great way to learn new or develop existing skills. All while getting the best possible experience by working within the job role.
