Life at Beagle Street
Beagle Street is a unique place to work in that it has a start-up feel but boasts the infrastructure and support of the BGL group. I was lucky enough to join Beagle Street on my first rotation of the Marketing Graduate scheme, at an exciting time as the new website was really taking shape.
Within the first few weeks of my role, I was testing new webpages at usability sessions and enhancing content for SEO benefit – talk about thrown in at the deep end! You should join the BGL Marketing Graduate scheme if you are passionate about your field, and are willing to work hard to learn new skills from day one.
There are some great people at Beagle Street who will support you and pass on their experiences and expertise from real-working life, and you’ll wonder why they never taught you all of this at uni!
Tips when applying
My top tip when applying would be to concentrate on what you can bring to the team, not what you think they want to hear. Every person is different, and that makes for a collective talented team that you’re sure to enjoy should you join BGL.
