Launch your career at the forefront of emerging media, getting stuck into data - everything from analysing trends to using new technologies - while enjoying perks like agency parties and events, subsidised gym membership and free breakfasts at a leading global agency that creates amazing campaigns for big-brands like BT, EE, Ubisoft & L'Oreal.

Joining one of our newest divisions - and the fastest growing area in media - you'll be involved in making our client budgets go as far as possible, analysing market trends and information, interpreting data and using new technologies to help our account teams deliver the best work possible for our clients.
As one of five apprentices on our Maxus Calling apprenticeship scheme, you'll have the opportunity to continue your education while also getting your career started in one of the most vibrant and exciting industries out there!

Key responsibilities include:

  • Collecting, organising and analysing data about advertising campaigns, spend, sales, etc.
  • Creating reports to help people understand how their campaigns are performing
  • Using analytics tools to find insights from online data (e.g. search, Twitter, Instagram)
  • Making sense of data questions from clients and agency people
  • Finding the right data sources to answer questions and turning client queries into research and analysis briefs
  • Online research to find case studies, data, etc
  • Checking data and reports to make sure they're accurate and clear
So what is Maxus Calling?

A 12-15 month apprenticeship where you will work four days a week in an entry level apprentice role within the agency, working on some of our biggest clients. One day a week will also be spent in college or studying towards a Level 4 qualification, so you're getting the best of both worlds!

Not only will you receive a starting salary of £17,500 and the qualification, you'll have access to all the great benefits that come as an employee of Maxus. These include subsidised gym membership and ski trip, £250 ‘For Growth Fund, two hours a week for exercise time, regular agency parties and events, 26 days paid holiday over 12 months and free breakfast in the office every day.

The scheme is tailored to you:

  • Training and development plan tailored to you
  • A strong support team guiding you through
  • GroupM training and workshops
  • A dedicated assessor from our apprentice partners to monitor and help you progress with your qualification

Things to consider Please list ALL qualifications you currently hold (or are awaiting results for) accurately and comprehensively, including subject name and level as appears on certification. If - after being offered a position - you are found to have deliberately omitted or inaccurately listed qualifications that make you ineligible for the apprenticeship (e.g. previous training in the same modules) you will be in breach of your contract with Creative Pioneers London and we reserve the right to either readvertise the role or offer to an alternative candidate. If you hold a degree level qualification in most cases this will make you ineligible for apprenticeship funding and your application may not be successful.
