Jack completes apprenticeship… and takes on a new role

25th July 2023

We’re thrilled to announce that Jack Weir has completed his Digital Marketing Apprenticeship with Horizon Works – and he has now been appointed as our Marketing and Digital Administrator.

Jack began his apprenticeship with us in July 2022.

Over the last year, he has worked alongside our marketing specialists to gain hands-on experience in areas such as social media, e-marketing, SEO, website management and Google Analytics.

He has also gained wider insight into how B2B marketing is applied in the manufacturing and engineering sectors, and how digital marketing activities are integrated into marketing strategies and brand building.

His Digital Marketing Apprenticeship was delivered through Darlington-based Baltic Apprenticeships, which specialises in digital marketing and IT apprenticeships.

In his new role of Marketing and Digital Administrator, he will be supporting the Horizon Works team across a wide range of marketing activities.

Samantha Vassallo, Managing Director of Horizon Works, said: “Jack should be very proud of what he has achieved over the last 12 months – he has been a pleasure to work with, and has shown great commitment to his apprenticeship and the business.

“We are committed to helping young people to launch and develop their marketing careers, and we’ve enjoyed seeing Jack advance through his apprenticeship.

“We’re delighted that he has completed his apprenticeship and joined us in a full-time role.”

Jack Weir said: “The apprenticeship has given me a fantastic opportunity to gain practical experience of digital marketing.

“By undertaking an apprenticeship in an agency environment, I’ve been able to support my colleagues on a number of exciting campaigns, projects and activities, from website builds to industry events. This has given me a deeper understanding of marketing, which I am taking forward into my new role.

“I’m looking forward to progressing my career further with Horizon Works!”
