Our UNITEplus Student, whom we now employ full time, has helped us to approach the digital marketing arena with confidence, giving a consistent message to our customers, followers, and the future potential of the company.
Testimony from the student:
My placement at Readyfix was crucial in my understanding of business and B2B marketing, I was able to closely work with my colleagues to implement strategic marketing campaigns.
I was employed through UNITEplus as a Digital Marketing Assistant where I utilised my knowledge of social media to plan, create and execute content for the company’s social accounts. Additionally, I was accountable for some of the E-mail marketing campaigns, which were regularly sent to customers using industry software. The workload required I tap into my creative skills and by creating fresh marketing material to support the business.
At the end of my placement I was asked to join Readyfix full time as a Marketing Manager, this would not have been possible if it wasn’t for the UNITEplus scheme. I am forever grateful for the opportunity as I enjoyed the last few months of university having secured a full time graduate role in my field of study.
I strongly recommend students and graduates to partake in a UNITEplus placement as it is a great opportunity to be exposed to different areas of a business. The placement itself is well organised and student friendly – as it is paid and you can work around your study commitments. The experience you can gain from the placement is priceless as you are truly given the chance to showcase and craft your skills, whether it be time management or specific industry skills. You can learn so much in a short space of time.
The UNITEPlus team were amazing throughout the whole process and I’m thankful for their dedication, passion and advice. It never went unnoticed.”
