Kick-starting your career in digital

The transition into full-time work following school or university can be daunting. You might not even be sure which path you want to take. Luckily, there are many ways to immerse yourself in the digital marketing industry and plenty of free tools and resources to help you to build your knowledge in the early stages of your journey.

Check out our range of beginner’s guides, for example. To ease yourself into your role at Impression, we have various benefits in place to support your mental health and well-being, such as a virtual therapy platform, private medical insurance, regular company socials, impact initiatives, and much more.
As an early career starter, you’ll feed into the production of your own personal development plan, have dedicated time assigned to L&D and have access to specialist training courses that will help you grow technical and behavioural skills.

Your development is not a once-a-year conversation. We encourage continuous feedback and coaching, frequent performance and career conversations and give you opportunities to be self-reflective about your performance and career goals. We have mechanisms in place to support this, such as quarterly reviews, objective settings with key results (OKRs), 1-2-1s and transparent frameworks.

Your benefits

On an annual basis, we invite volunteers across the agency to take part in a focus group to share which benefits matter the most to them. By learning more about our people’s wants and needs, we can create a benefits package that helps individuals look after their health and well-being, keep on top of their finances and enjoy their time outside of work.
