Local award-winning creative agency appoints first ever Apprentice

A leading Worcestershire digital and creative communications agency appointed its first apprentice this week, ahead of National Apprenticeship Week.

Conteur, which has had a base in the city for nearly ten years, recently added Eleanor Inge, 21, to their team as Digital Marketing Apprentice.

Eleanor will be working towards achieving her Level 3 Digital Marketing Apprenticeship at The Heart of Worcestershire College, a formal learning scheme that provides an alternative route into the creative industries.

Within her new role, Eleanor will work on areas including creating, designing and implementing digital marketing strategies for clients across Conteur’s specialist sectors of Health and Social Care, Technology, Property and Hospitality.

Conteur, who have built a market-leading reputation in a handful of key sectors, provide an integrated offering of PR, digital marketing, video production and graphic design.

Speaking about her appointment, Eleanor said: “What a joy to be accepted into such a fantastic team! I am looking forward to growing my creativity and developing new skills in such a forward-thinking company.

David Huckerby, Conteur’s Managing Director, commented: “As a creative agency, we are passionate about bringing fresh ideas and perspectives into our team. We were so impressed by Eleanor’s enthusiasm, positivity and can-do attitude, that we knew she would be a great fit and a valuable addition to our growing Digital Marketing team.

Getting digital marketing right is critical to all businesses right now and we’re proud to work with so many fantastic organisations across areas such as Social Media, SEO and Pay-Per-Click advertising.”

Dave Lee, Director of Apprenticeships at Heart of Worcestershire College, said: “Here at HoW College we’re thrilled to offer apprenticeship training in a wide variety of subject areas. Apprenticeships are a great way of learning the latest industry skills and knowledge, building self-confidence and resilience with support from workplace mentors and College staff. All this whilst earning a salary!

State of the art technology is used to ensure that every apprentice continues to learn and develop at a suitable pace at work, in College or online with a wide range of support available.”

This latest appointment follows a busy twelve months for Conteur, with this being their fourth appointment in less than a year, as well as winning a Royal Television Society award for their production featuring Worcestershire’s own The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company.
