Employer Description
We’ve been giving pro gamers the edge through our amazing gaming peripherals for more than 10 years, and the massive mainstream growth of eSports and competitive video gaming means that getting an advantage over the opposition is now more important than ever before. A Formula 1 driver won’t win many races with a car that’s unreliable or that contains inferior technology; likewise, professional gamers and clans will find it tough to win tournaments without the bulletproof reliability, laser-like accuracy and extreme comfort that professional gaming accessories provide.

Description of Vacancy 
We’re currently looking for a Marketing Apprentice to join our marketing team based in Rainham, to work on growing our social media platforms, develop our website and showcasing the brand at offline events all over the world.

Some of the main duties included within the role are:-

Manage the social media profiles 
Speak with customers and be forward facing to the business 
Use of a computer for administration and reporting 
Creating engaging digital assets for social media promotion (Instagram and Insta story graphics, quote cards, short videos, sizzle trailers) 
Edit and maintain product listings on our web shop 
Provide reports to understand what’s going on in the social world 
Set up paid advertising to reach new audiences within gaming 
Driving a daily organic growth of the brand across Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube 
Managing weekly reporting for social media organic growth 
Managing communities and responding to comments to drive audience engagement 
Fully responsible for all social posts that go out to the general public

During this apprenticeship you will be learning so many skills when it comes to launching brand new products, maintain existing ones and broadcasting the Lime Pro Gaming name worldwide. We are in the process of manufacturing a select amount of products that we have designed and tested by us for gamers. You will work towards owning this side of the business and running everything from social media campaigns, working with some of the biggest influencers in the gaming space and guerrilla offline marketing activations all over the UK.
