Description

For this traineeship, we’re mainly looking for Dutch speaking candidates as most SEO and SEA work requires knowledge of this language. However, we do have the flexibility to hire some international trainees as well. So feel free to apply if you’re fluent in English!

 

Are you the one who can make razor-sharp connections? Who identifies cause & effect and can propose solutions that contribute to better results? Are you keen on learning everything about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) or Search Engine Advertising (SEA) and apply this knowledge to the largest (inter)national brands?

In september we will launch our successful online marketing traineeship at dentsu for the eleventh year in a row. The best search specialists will teach you and your fellow trainees the tricks of the trade and additionally we will learn you more about the world of digital marketing & consultancy.

The traineeship has two directions: SEO or SEA. In this vacancy, we would like to explain more about these directions and about the traineeship in general.

What are you going to do?

In seven months’ time, we will train you to become a specialist in the field of SEO or SEA. We take you through the theory and practice of SEO or SEA and teach you the skills that are important to become a top consultant. You will also learn about our way of working and the tooling & systems we use in our daily work.

In the first three months, you will attend full time sessions and workshops as a group to enhance your knowledge. Each module (three in total) will be concluded with a case presentation, in which you will be able to show what you have learned in the previous weeks. After these three months, you will start working on multiple client teams and will be able to put your knowledge into practice.
