Social Media Apprentice

Are you a Facebook Fanatic, Tweetaholic or Instagram addict?

Well, imagine getting paid for doing the stuff you love.

Cuckoo is looking for a bright, creative and enthusiastic social media apprentice to join its team in Manchester while studying for a City and Guilds social media apprenticeship from The Juice Academy.

Note: The Juice Academy will recruit a number of apprentices to start in July and while you’re applying for the Cuckoo Design job, you may be placed in a different, equally exciting role in a different company as part of the programme.

What do you call a bunch of people prepared to go over the edge in pursuit of imaginative and effective branding solutions? In a word, Cuckoo.

Based in Manchester’s city centre, Cuckoo Design is an ideas-driven branding and creative marketing agency.

This role will see the new ‘Cuckoo’ working on the social media for its client, Valor Hospitality. Valor Hospitality operates 20 hotels throughout the UK including: Doubletree by Hilton, AC by Marriott, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn brands.

This is a great opportunity to get some real on-the-job training, a recognised qualification and be job-ready at the end of it all. Oh, and did we mention you get paid £11,500 for all your hard work?

Digital marketing is one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK, so prospects upon completion are very promising.

If you have 5 A-Cs at GCSE including English and Maths or equivalent we want to hear from you.
