About DMA Talent
We’re a part of the Data & Marketing Association (DMA) – Europe’s biggest community of data-driven marketers - and we build pathways for students and apprentices to tap into a vibrant, thriving world of data-driven creativity, marketing, technology and innovation.
Our mission is to nurture the next generation to become more employable, and help them find their path into the UK’s growing data and marketing industry. You don’t need to have studied marketing to get a job in the industry – there are so many transferable skills that are relevant, such as communication, story-telling, analysis, critical thinking, problem solving and creativity. If you have any of these strengths, there’s a place for you.
And our unique DMA Student Membership will help you get there. By becoming a Member, you’re joining the DMA’s community, and demonstrating to potential employers that you’re committed to your professional development and are actively seeking to improve your skill set.
