Employer description

Field Studies Council, FSC, is an environmental education charity providing informative and enjoyable opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore, and understand the environment.

FSC believes that the more we understand about and take inspiration from the world around us, the more we can appreciate its needs and protect its diversity and beauty for future generations.

We use the environment to inspire, taking in its sights, sounds and smells. This has the ability to motivate, deepen knowledge and broaden horizons.

From the way we treat our customers, our staff, the environments we work in and the feel of our locations, FSC demonstrates a personal approach with great care taken in everything we do.

Job overview / purpose

Field Studies Council are offering an excellent opportunity for somebody wishing to gain valuable experience of marketing techniques in order to develop a career in this area.

The successful candidate will spend, on average, three days a week within a small but busy marketing department getting hands-on experience in the areas that are of most interest to them, such as PR, copywriting, advertising, website development and search engine optimisation.

The remaining two days will be spent in our communications department, seeing and responding to the results of FSC’s marketing efforts and gaining important customer service skills.

In addition, the successful candidate will gain a CIM Level 4 Award in Digital Marketing and be given one-to-one training on the recruitment process to better enable them to find a permanent position after the completion of the apprenticeship.

  • Developing content for social media

  • The atmosphere of the organisation is informal; it is much less of a culture shock than going from education to very formal companies
  • The size of the charity enables apprentices to get involved in marketing projects that smaller organisations are not able to perform or not able to perform in as much depth
  • Apprentices are treated as valuable members of the team; they are not here to perform menial tasks

Other benefits include

  • 28 days holiday (inc Bank Holidays)
  • Pension
