    What's your experience of the Forward3D Academy?

    Throughout my first six months at Forward3D, I was given thorough training in SEO that was both practical and immersive. During this time, I was trained in the fundamentals of search engine optimisation and gained hands-on experience with both technical tasks and content marketing across a variety of clients, from financial services to fashion brands.

     

    My responsibilities consistently grew during my first six months and by the end of the training programme I was producing a weekly report to be delivered to the client. I also became proficient with multiple SEO tools and platforms, whilst my Excel and data analysis skill set also developed rapidly. Since finishing the training programme, I have continued to utilise new tools and have been focusing in particular on becoming certified in Google Analytics. I have also had the opportunity to learn about PPC through Forward3D’s Buddy Scheme, which has been beneficial to broadening my knowledge of other digital marketing channels outside of SEO.

     

    The creative and innovative atmosphere at the agency makes Forward3D an exciting place to work. Support is always on hand to help you further your understanding and acquire new skills, which means you're continually developing.

    Content Marketing Executive

     

    Which office are you based in?

    When did you start at Forward3D?

    May 2015

     

    What's your experience of the Forward3D Academy?

    As a Trainee it felt good to be treated like a fully-fledged member of the team from the start. This was fundamental for me to hit the ground running. Settling into the role and the new surroundings allowed me to get to grips with the tasks at hand early. In my first month, I was trained in industry standard tools and processes and soon after, I was trusted to present at client meetings and participate in discussions to give them technical recommendations on how to improve their website.

     

     

    I come from a Marketing background, which gave me the foundations to understand the role from a top level basis but I don’t feel like this is a necessity. Regardless of your background, the training here will provide you with everything you need to settle in at Forward3D and aid your progression.

     

     

    During my traineeship, management and other members of the department were always available and took the time out to point me in the right direction. The support at Forward3D is great for all the graduates starting; advice is there to be taken from a range of smart people who are easily approachable. The culture within Forward3D encourages staff to feel confident in the work they’re doing, and with sociable colleagues, I was never scared to ask when I needed a helping hand.

     

     

    I particularly enjoy being given the opportunity to interact with people from so many different countries!  It has helped me understand different cultures and procedures that allow us to create quality work on a global basis. This is a fundamental skill to be aware of as the competitive digital marketing environment we are helping our clients to compete in is constantly evolving and requires us to have global perspective.

     

     

    A personal highlight in my training was launching a campaign in my first few months in the agency. Taking advantage of the variety of sporting events taking place in July, we helped create an interactive platform to highlight a summer clothing range for one of our Premium Fashion clients. I was given many responsibilities early on, with freedom to talk to the client and to manage the project with our Design Team and Front end Developers before successfully launching the campaign.
