WYK Digital is a social enterprise with a mission to empower young people from all backgrounds to take that first step on to the ladder of a digital marketing career. Our mission is to make success in the digital age accessible to young people regardless of their start in life. We have run 8 cohorts, training over 250 young people nationwide and placing 75% of individuals in some of the industry's best organisations. Join us at our first industry event to find more about our mission.

This event will help you:

  • Increase employee engagement and nurture teams’ confidence and motivation
  • Create inclusive work environments for all members of the team
  • Understand how to access up-skilled motivated digital professionals from diverse backgrounds
  • Develop equitable hiring systems and design inclusive recruiting practices

You will have the chance to hear from the WYK digital team, meet some of our alumni and hear from our existing employment partners.

Our innovative 11 week training accelerator has proven that no matter your background, experience or training - there is a place in the digital marketing industry for you. If you have the right training and support.

We collaborate with The Prince's Trust to help young people from underrepresented backgrounds gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to get jobs in performance marketing.
