How does it work?

It's simple. If selected, we will put you through a rigorous 9 week preparation course during which time we will present you to over ten companies. From there they may elect you to interview you further which could lead to a job offer. Our clients regularly employ new starters and university graduates. Having skills means they are more likely consider you because you are more prepared than other candidates. Organisations we work with include NZ media companies and agencies such as:

  • KBR Digital
  • Dentsu Aegis
  • Starcom / Zenith
  • Yahoo
  • Lassoo Media
  • TVNZ
  • Mi9
  • 1st Screen
  • MBM
  • Bauer Media
  • NZME
  • Group M

Job Placement

From our programme, we have placed many of our trainees in companies such as  Dentsu Aegis, KBR Digital, Mi9, MBM, TVNZ and 1st Screen. These placements would not have been possible without the FutureYou programme. Listen to what one of our graduates Nick says:

Location and Requirements

The programme material is available online and is built upon with 9 x weekly face-to-face 5pm night classes based in the Auckland CBD (6 of the 9 sessions are 5pm night classes. The other 3 are afternoons). Weekly modules will take you about 1-3 hours each week to read but it is up to you to make sure you understand as much as possible as there are accompanying tests. You will also be required to study and complete the Google Adwords Fundamentals exam as a part of this programme

Selection Criteria

We do not require trainees to have a tertiary degree as a prerequisite but you must demonstrate an interest in digital marketing and have the right to live and work full time in NZ (you cannot be on a temporary student visa) . You can be an extrovert, introvert or ambivert and can come from a variety of backgrounds whether marketing, communications, web development, data, graphic design, science or commerce. However you must have good english (but does not have to be your first language), have attention to detail and be able to demonstrate an aptitude towards things such as:

  • Numeracy
  • Analytics
  • Technology
  • Programming
  • Software (particularly Microsoft Excel)

If you have experience with Google / Facebook products or any form of digital marketing then that's even better. It goes without say that you need to be passionate and hard-working so if you think you have what it takes then we'd love to hear from you.
