Exeter division create Barratt's first Marketing Apprenticeship in the UK
Thursday 03 May 2018
In a UK first, the country’s largest and best-known house builder has created an apprenticeship in marketing, in association with Exeter College.
Barratt Developments has long appointed apprentices in bricklaying, carpentry and plumbing but this initiative takes apprenticeships in a completely new direction.
Barratt Developments, which includes Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes, has its regional headquarters in Exeter’s Matford Business Park where the marketing apprentice will be based.
The apprentice will work with the marketing team in delivering highly engaging digitally-focused marketing plans to support the sales targets for the division. The role will also include helping create engaging website content and combine this with high quality imagery/video as well as managing the research for future development websites.
Paul Moran, managing director for the Barratt division in Exeter, said:
As one of the country's top developers we are absolutely committed to developing raw talent and I believe that we have a duty to provide these kinds of apprenticeship opportunities. We are extremely proud of our apprenticeship scheme and the talented team members that have passed through it and stayed with the company over the years.”
Barratt Exeter’s marketing manager Alex Jones who has herself seen her own career blossom at Barratt, said:
This is a really exciting opportunity for the right candidate. As a high performing business we’re looking for people who are looking to develop a career in a challenging and rapidly developing industry.”
