Anicca Digital – Recruitment Bootcamp Content Marketing & Social Media

Written by Jess Harvey on 3rd April 2017

We are looking to train our next generation of Social Media Managers and Content Marketers to join our digital agency, based in the heart of Leicestershire.

This is a fast track program – with performance reviews every 3 months and the possibility of promotions leading to more senior roles. We are looking for people who want a long term career with us, so you need to live in and love Leicester just like we do! So, to ensure we get the right candidates we have developed a unique selections process…

The Selection Process!

If you are interested in this exciting opportunity you will need to go through our rigorous selection process:

1.       Please send your CV with a cover letter to [email protected]

2.       We will give you an initial phone interview and if successful, a face to face interview during May 2017

3.       6-8 candidates will be invited to attend a 2 week bootcamp at our offices in Leicester (starting 26th June 2017). You will receive 10 days of intensive hands-on class room training, plus practical assessments. This culminates in you taking a Social Media and SEO exam, putting together a presentation, and a final selection interview. See more details below.

4.       The candidates that meet our professional expectations will be offered a trainee position in either the Social Media or SEO team and will start their new job on (or around)  August/September 2017.

The Bootcamp – 2 week training course and trainee selection process

This Bootcamp is an extensive mixture of classroom-taught sessions and practical workshops.

NOTE: You will have to make your own way to our office everyday, so you will need to live in or within commuting distance of Leicester.

What’s it like working at Anicca?

We like to work hard and still have time for a good laugh! We enjoy going to the pub together and try to do a monthly social.  Many of the staff have worked at Anicca for a number of years, so it is very much a family atmosphere. Have a look at what some of the team had to say about Anicca last year!
