Brave Little Tank has a shiny new apprentice!

For our third birthday, Brave Little Tank got a pretty awesome present – Our First Apprentice, completing a digital marketing apprenticeship. We let her introduce herself…

Hello world, I’m Maddie Green and I am working towards a Level 3 Diploma in Social Media and Digital Marketing with BLT.

You’ll have to bear with me as this is my first blog post, but I will try my best! I am the smallest and youngest in the office, at 5ft2 and 19 years old. I love anything Disney and eating Chicken Nuggets (most can probably relate). I completed A-levels in Photography, Music and Drama, and I am now working for Brave Little Tank.

If you’re wondering why I chose this Apprenticeship (rather than University or college), then read on!

For myself, having the experience of a workplace is much more beneficial than sitting in lectures. I prefer a hands-on approach, letting my creativity show through anything that Anthony or Chris throw in my direction (not literally). Although I haven’t been here for very long, they have given me responsibilities to show I’m capable of my workload.

My reason for choosing this particular course is simple.

Whether it be learning pages of new Technical Audits, or creating template emails. I find the world of marketing is always developing and I love being up-to-date with the changes.

Working at Brave Little Tank is great for my qualification as the business is solely based on digital marketing (obviously). Being a smaller company, compared to large, corporate marketing businesses, means it’s way easier to ask for help on anything, and I’m always given an exciting range of things to do.

Between the tapping of the keyboards and endless cups of coffee, the interesting and quirky ideas that come from Anthony and Chris really shows how creative their minds are, helping me to think outside the box as well!

What about when I finish?

After completing this Apprenticeship, I am hoping to work towards a Level 4 in Social Media and Digital Marketing. Why? Because digital marketing is awesome and the leading way to gain new business :).
