Two University of Brighton students were lucky enough to be invited into the offices of local digital marketing agency SiteVisibility, meeting with members of the team to learn their roles, and taking part in a Lunch and Learn training session with SEO director Peter Philpott.
Sam Ingleston, 20, and Jeremiah Monk, 19, visited the offices on the 15th of May as part of the Business in the Community Give & Gain Day, a global celebration of the power and potential of employee volunteering, which sees thousands of people worldwide volunteering for good causes in their local community.
Give and Gain Day is an event founded by Business in the Community, a business-led, issue focused charity with more than 30 years of experience mobilising business.
The students were also invited to apply for the annual SiteVisibility prize, which will see one student win £100, a trophy, and the opportunity to undertake a one-year placement at the agency over the next 12 months. The prize has been awarded for over 10 years, ever since the relationship between the company and the University began, and is just one of the many ways SiteVisibility is committed to helping the local community.
Jason Woodford, CEO of SiteVisibility, said “digital skills shortages are an industry wide challenge and SiteVisibility is delighted to be able to do its bit to attract more talent into this exciting and evolving profession.”
