First Role and Future Leaders Wanted

Following a review last year with the Marketing Society Scotland Council it was agreed we should simplify our membership levels and promote a more inclusive approach to encourage young and ambitious talent to get involved.

First Role Marketers 
Previously the entry level of membership was defined as Graduate Member which suggests our industry has a focus on university and degree level talent. The Council agreed we should be promoting marketing as an exciting career option for pupils or students from as diverse backgrounds as possible. We also believe it is important for marketers in their first role to feel proud to be part of a professional community. Members in their First Role qualify for a discounted membership fee of £180 + VAT pa – with no enrolment fees.

Future Leaders 
Previously we had a membership level defined as Associate Member for marketers under 30 years of age with a minimum of 3 years experience. However we recognise that some people may have started their career later or have had a career break. We now invite marketers of any age who have at least three years experience and are ambitious to be successful in their career to join at a discounted rate of £245 + VAT pa – any with a first year enrolment fee of £87.50.

If you know any marketers either in their First Role or have the potential to be a Future Leader please let us know and you will be rewarded with a £25 John Lewis voucher once they have joined.
