LAST CHANCE TO GET £4K to Bring Your Digital Marketing In-House
by Jo Shaer, on January 30, 2016
I am reminded that Essex County Council are still promoting a funding programme for Essex businesses which is finishing on 31 March 2016.
The Digital Skills for Growth programme enables Essex businesses to receive up to £4,000 for each employee they hire to go towards developing their digital skills. As long as the employee is an Essex resident and going into a digital based role, they can cover 70% of the course fee for any training that will enhance their skills and help your business to grow.
Recruit or promote a digital marketer
Yes, you heard that right! If you employ a person to take on your digital marketing, you can get £4000 worth of FREE training - providing you stump up the remaining 30%.
An alternative is to move an existing employee into the Digital Marketing role and take on a new employee to fill that existing employee's role. Yes, you are still eligible for a grant to cover 70% of any training costs.
Who can train your digital marketing employee?
What industries can apply for the Digital Skills for Growth funding?

What's the catch?
No catch! You just have to talk to Essex County Council BEFORE you employ this new member of staff. Call us on 01702 476517 and we can put you in touch with the right person.
If you've considered employing someone to bring your digital marketing in house and sending them on one of our training courses, this is the ideal opportunity. Get the Council to pay a nice lump sum towards your training from Lollipop.
It's a WIN/WIN situation.
