The DM Lab would like to introduce you to our newest apprentice – Joe

Joe is our newest apprentice here at The DM Lab. He worked with The Development Manager to secure himself an Apprentice position here. He achieved a distinction* in a BTEC level 3 subsidiary diploma in IT as well as 2 A levels in Psychology and Communication & Culture.

A bit about Joe…

One of his main interests is gaming – he’s always been very keen on video games since a young age and currently plays Rocket League to a high level. He also runs his own landscape photography Instagram account featuring landscape images from all over the U.K. Furthermore, him and his family are all huge Tottenham fans! They watch all the games together and hope to go and see them play at their new stadium soon.

Joe has just finished his first week here and has already explored lots of different areas of digital marketing. He’s already learned many different valuable skills and says he can’t wait to learn more. Firstly, he learned all about Google Ads and paid advertising. He did a lot of research into it and completed a few training courses. A couple of days later, he took an exam in Google Skillshop and achieved a Google Ads Search certification!

However, he was also tasked with implementing some changes to a client’s website later on in the week. Meaning he spent the last part of the week indulging into code and really getting to grips with just how it works. This sort of thing didn’t appeal to him quite so much initially, but he surprised himself with how fun it was to write code and see it have a direct affect on the website’s page.

Overall, he said that his first week at The DM Lab has been brilliant. “The team have all been very friendly, welcoming and helpful. I’m very much looking forward for what’s to come in the future”.
