Alpha Foundations Associate

Alpha Digital is thrilled to announce applications are now open for our 2023 Foundations Program! Get invaluable exposure to the world of digital marketing and navigate across our paid media, digital experience, creative and client solutions teams.

About us
At Alpha we have built an agency focused on driving digital forwards. We do this for our clients every day by leading with curiosity. Our digital experts work with brands like City Beach, Petbarn, Lorna Jane, Amart, Pillow Talk, Sass & Bide, and Superga and they trust us to deliver their market-leading campaigns.

Alpha Digital sets itself apart through unwavering focus on our clients. Everything we do is to help them be better; to help guide them to push the boundaries of what’s possible. This extends to the culture we’ve developed. We know that a fulfilled team makes for satisfied clients, so we invest purposefully in professional and personal development, work/life balance, wellness, and social activities. Boasting really isn’t in our nature though. We like to think that our results speak for themselves.

About Alpha Foundations
The ultimate goal of Alpha Foundations is to equip you with a breadth of knowledge across key specialty areas of digital marketing to find the niche that ignites your passion. Once you’ve found it, Alpha Foundations will set you up to embark on a rewarding career, guiding and empowering you to succeed. 

Whether you’re fresh out of university, stepping into the professional world for the first time, more mature and looking to see if digital marketing is your next adventure, or somewhere in between – this program is designed to immerse you into the world of digital marketing to find your niche.

So, what are the specifics of the program?
The Alpha Foundations Program runs for 12 months from January until December and is split into two distinct phases – ‘find what you love’ and ‘deepen your knowledge’. 

Phase 1: Find what you love

During the first 6 months, associates rotate around each department in the business – Digital Experience, Paid Media, Creative and Client Solutions. At Alpha Digital, we expose our associates to a wide variety of digital marketing services to foster collaborative learning, curiosity, and then the opportunity to apply and iterate.

Phase 2: Deepen your knowledge

Based on exposure to each department and the work completed during the initial 6 months, associates will then be given the opportunity to spend the next 6 months deep diving into a preferred specialty department. This time is all about immersing yourself in your chosen specialty area with more intensive training programs as well as providing the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to deliver real value to clients.

Next steps

Based on the work you do as part of your cohort, high performing associates will be selected and offered a permanent full-time role in their chosen specialty.

Foundations project
A key part of the Alpha Foundations program is the Foundations Project. This project, completed in the final 6 months of the program, will give you the opportunity to show off what you’ve learned to both a real-life client and the team that nurtured you during your time at Alpha Digital. You’ll work with a mentor and Foundation program peers to deliver a client campaign project to the agency that showcases an application of the key skills you learned during the program. This is your time to shine!

What will my day to day look like?
Due to the broad scope of the Foundations program, a definitive list of duties and responsibilities will always be a little imperfect. Your day could comprise of any/all/some/none of the following:

  • Participate in training sessions lead by Alpha Digital’s internal product experts, as well as training provided by our partners such as Google, Facebook, Quantcast + more.
  • Practice what you’ve learned in a collaborative work environment, finessing your skills on real client accounts.
  • Meet with your mentor for 1:1 coaching, support, feedback and guidance.
  • Shadow more senior team members, attending and observing client pitches and regular WIPs to get a first-hand experience of agency-life.
  • As a keen self-starter, you take the initiative and are proactive in looking for ways to support and assist the product teams in delivering excellent work.
  • Observe and learn from how your peers make decisions to form your own understanding as to how we continually improve and streamline our product offering or ways of working.

What we’re looking for
If you are curious by nature, willing to learn, passionate about digital marketing and excited about the prospect of joining the Alpha team, we’d love to hear from you!
