Merlin’s Apprentice is a 12 month fully paid Marketing Apprenticeship for 18 - 24 year olds who are not currently in employment, education or training.

The Apprenticeships are awarded to young adults who, due to a lack of qualifications, challenging backgrounds or poor life choices, would normally be overlooked for this kind of work experience. The Apprenticeship does not only provide on-the-job learning, training and qualifications but, more importantly, the first step to a career within Marketing, Advertising or Communications.


Our aim is to create 50 Apprenticeships and to do so we've created The Merlin's Apprentice £1million Fund.

Each time the fund hits £20k we hire a new Apprentice and change the future of a young person in the UK. We're encouraging all marketers, brands, media owners and agency's to make a donation to the fund and help build a pipe line of young talent that will benefit the industry for years to come.
