Following on from the first Sales and Marketing Academy, Employment and Learning Minister Dr. Stephen Farry and Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster have welcomed the launch of the second intake of the Academy. The Academy aims to provide graduates with the practical skills and expertise required to take up exciting new opportunities in the fields of export sales and marketing. Minister Farry said, “This joint venture between my Department and Invest NI is an exciting new area of development which has been identified by employers. Selling products and services into export markets is essential for the development of Northern Ireland’s economy. “On completion of the Academy the successful participants will receive accredited qualifications recognised by industry and practical work experience on a specific company project, which will prepare them for exciting job opportunities in the workplace.” Targeting HND, degree or equivalent graduates from any discipline, the Academy will offer an intensive eight week training programme with one of the weeks spent in a European Academic Institution. This will be followed by a nine month temporary work contract with an employer and a potential offer of employment. For further information on the academy, including details on how to apply, visit:
