"If the most difficult thing about the graduate job-search is getting the ball rolling, then DigitalGrads boots that ball so far you might feel it touch the back of your head.

If you're feeling stuck, feel like you need some practical training before applying for digital marketing roles and would like having someone do most of the looking for you, then look no further. I struggled a lot with the job-search after graduating, but DigitalGrads' informative training and excellent recruitment propelled me into a junior marketing role at a company that I wouldn't have dreamt working with without their support.

I can't thank the team enough."

The course really helped me hold my own in an interview. I had no experience and little knowledge about digital marketing prior to starting the course. I was able to talk about relevant topics and understand marketing terms that without this course I would not have been able to. Also when I mentioned to them that I was undertaking marketing training in my own time they seemed impressed. Overall I would recommend this course to anyone looking to get into digital marketing as it helped me massively. Thank you to the whole team for your help and support!

"I tried Digital Grads because for months I found it difficult to get experience in online marketing and I hadn't seen any other website like it. It actually turned out to be really worthwhile.

The courses that were available were incredibly informative. Having learned a little in digital marketing before, some information wasn't new to me, but each video was perfect for beginners and still had really useful examples and pieces of information for more experienced learners. A big plus is that it's free.


If you're struggling to find experience in digital marketing or simply wanting to expand your options, I'd definitely recommend it. It's easy to use, courses laid out in an effective order, I can't complain about it."

"Brilliant team of people, highly professional!


After a lengthy period of struggling to get a job and never hearing back, I started the Digital Grads training thinking there must be some kind of catch. 


This couldn't have been further from the case though as they were in regular contact and made sure they found me a job that I would enjoy. The training was very helpful and applies heavily to much of what I'm doing in my new job."

"I just landed my dream career as an SEO and Digital Marketing Consultant, and a huge part of that win was because of DigitalGrads. It was difficult to know how to land a job in Digital marketing as a new graduate, with most of the job adverts requiring years of employment in a similar role. But then I found DigitalGrads whose very friendly staff walked me through building a portfolio, walked me through their great training options to add to my skills and then talked me through a variety of opportunities that would be suitable.


While it's in their interest to get you hired (it's how they earn their money) it was more like every member of staff were personally invested and interested in helping you start your career. You can tell DigitalGrads really care about what they do and the graduates they help. 10/10 on all fronts, thanks again!"

"As a graduate recruitment agency, DigitalGrads puts their graduate first. They were very committed to my quest for getting a graduate job in digital marketing. They made sure that I was well informed and equipped with the specific digital skills that businesses actually need by providing a value packed digital marketing course free of charge.


On successful completion of the DigitalGrads accelerator programme, they made sure my skills and experiences were seen by potential employers through their online digital hiring platform. My favourite experience with DigitalGrads was the fact that the whole team took the time to get to know me as a person, my strengths and motivation drivers. This was a crucial process to not only ensuring I get a job but also the right job for me. After a few weeks of being in the digital accelerator programme with DigitalGrads, I can proudly say that my expectations were exceeded as I strongly believe I am now in the right job role that will kick start an exciting career in digital."

"I came across the DigitalGrads scheme a few weeks ago and I decided to take a chance on the programme. I called the team up to speak further about the scheme and what they had to offer and from the jump they seemed really forthcoming. They joined me as soon as they heard about my experience and my passion for the potential roles they had to offer. The experience from start to present day has been a pleasant and it is a training programme that I would strongly recommend. I learnt loads of invaluable tips and pointers that I now use when in interviews and whilst networking. I learnt about search marketing, SEO, PPC, CRO, how to analyse campaigns and so much more. The teaching is fun, interactive and digestible. Alongside the training you receive, you also get given guidance and resources from the core members of the DigitalGrads team, which can all be accessed online at any time.

I am now proficient in many aspects of digital marketing and I owe a lot of that to DigitalGrads and the team. I see this as the beginning of my relationship with DigitalGrads, as they have pledged to support me in my quest to becoming a digital marketing extraordinaire and they can do the same for you too!"

I was so lucky to have a chance engaging in a real-life social media campaign to consolidate the skills and techniques I’ve learned in those well-explained videos. Lucy is very experienced and passionate in this industry. The training course delivered by Lucy is really fascinating and meaningful. The course was well worth attending and I am happy to recommend this to anyone. If you approach it with the mind to get something out of it then you definitely will."

Lucy is fantastic and is there throughout the course on Skype, with a bright smile and wide range of knowledge. The videos were very informative and kept you engaged throughout with activities and documents to complete on the side as well. First class training in a short space of time. Would strongly recommend to anyone, without a doubt!"

It even helped me land my job as a Marketing Manager as I impressed my interviewer so much when speaking about SEO and PPC campaigns, and how they could improve their website.

If you are ever in doubt whether you should take this training I would suggest you think no further and just DO IT because it is worth every minute you spend on it!"

"Before I started Lucy’s programme I had self taught myself various elements of digital marketing. The issue with self teaching is a lack of confidence in conviction and a constant worry that you’re not reaching the full potential, not to mention when looking for jobs or work and you get asked a question from ‘the book’ you most probably won’t know the answer as the jargon will be foreign to you.


Through Lucy’s programme I’ve managed to cement my convictions, learn new skills that I didn’t have before and get a better digital marketing vocabulary that I lacked previously.


I’ve since been fortunate enough to secure an incredible marketing role at Camelot (the lottery company). Thanks Lucy."

"The Search Engine Marketing training has been a great experience for me. It made me realise that this is the career I would like to have in the future. I am now familiar with the terms used and was able to build stunning and tailored CV and cover letter. 


The training also puts your mind into the topic and you just want to know more and more about it. You start to see Google from a different perspective. I was also able to hold a 2 hour discussion explaining SEO and PPC to my mother and suggesting changes on the company’s website she works for. You realise that you got a strong ground of knowledge when you can explain it to someone who has never heard of the topic before.


I am confident that both the theoretical and practical knowledge I gained throughout the training would not only save me on a job interview but put me in the position of the top 5 candidate. I wish this training would exist in all business fields!"

"The digital marketing programme was a fantastic introduction to SEO and PPC of which I knew very little before. Additionally to explaining the basic concepts it unravels the possibilities of search marketing and what businesses need to get right to organically make their way up the Google pecking order. 


Given that this programme is new and likely to be updated with more interesting content, I highly recommend it. I’m looking forward to completing the rest of the courses!

"I studied a Marketing course a University and graduated with a high 2.1, but I still came away feeling nervous about applying for a postgrad role in digital marketing – I felt like I didn’t have all the knowledge or skills required to confidently go into an interview. 


Lucy’s Digital Marketing programme has been great. It covered so many different areas, and I feel like I could apply this knowledge to a future career. The frequent tests help to reinforce the learning, and Lucy is always on hand to provide help and guidance. 


This personal touch is what really differentiates this programme from any other online courses out there. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to further their knowledge in this area!"

"I would highly recommend DigitalGrads. The Search Engine Marketing Trainee program is designed and aimed to help individuals like me who have recently graduated from University to gain insider, relevant knowledge and understanding of all things Search Engine Marketing related. 


The course itself contains important how-to guides and background information to fully equip you with the know-how to implement Search Engine Marketing job roles effectively within the workplace. 


A lot of what the programme contains was not taught at University and I have found this to be a huge asset and firmly believe it will help me secure a dream graduate job having given me the confidence I didn’t have prior to taking the training."

"Having studied marketing at university, I found that although I did learn some digital marketing skills, I did not feel prepared for a digital role. The course was flexible to fit around my schedule, and allowed me to learn the basics of search marketing in a short time period.


The content is really interesting and allows you to learn the basics of SEO and PPC and go onto more complicated elements too. The Jargon Buster was a great tool and I’ll definitely be revisiting some of the tools in future. If you’re a student who’s just graduated, this course is perfect to complete to gain not only an educational experience but also a certificate that will boost your CV! 


Lucy is always on hand to help out and offer advice which gives a great personalised service to help you when you’re just starting out in the industry – I will definitely be recommending to my friends!"
