Apply to Dive In Tae Digital

Getting an entry-level job is hard. You need experience but no one will give you a chance. That’s why we’re here to disrupt the route into digital marketing. We won’t just provide you with knowledge, tools & confidence in digital marketing but we’ll give you that crucial experience you need. You’ll get hands-on experience & you’ll be helping a local small business that really appreciates your knowledge. 

Before we get into the real nitty gritty details, Dive In Tae Digital is inclusive – everyone is welcome here. Fresh out of school? In-between jobs? Currently studying? On a career break? Looking to return to work? This could be exactly what you’re looking for. We’re looking for hard-working people ready to dive in and change their future.

If you’re accepted to the internship, you’ll:

  • Learn all about digital marketing for the first 8 weeks, including social media, content creation, SEO (all things Google), graphic design, email marketing, competitor analysis and more
  • Be taught by experts in the industry who have worked with some of the biggest brands in the world
  • Gain real-life experience in a four week paid work placement
  • Get testimonials and references to help your future career
  • Grow in confidence and boost your skillset
  • Meet new people

If you’re 16-30, living in Dunfermline and currently out of work, we want to hear from you.

The Dive In Tae Digital Process

step 1

If this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for, apply by 10am Monday 10th June 2024. Remember we’re not looking for experience, we’re looking for a great work ethic. 

step 2

If you’re successful (yay for you!) we’ll invite you to a group interview where we can have a chat and get to know everyone a little better before narrowing down to 24 students.

step 3

We’ll run weekly training beginning Tues 2nd July 2024 & finishing on Thurs 22nd August 2024. Training sessions are on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9.30am-12.30pm at the Community Hub in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre, Dunfermline. This training is free to all learners – this part of the programme is unpaid.

step 4

We’ll match you up with a lovely, small local business in Dunfermline who is looking for your help with marketing. Your work placement will consist of two working days per week for four consecutive weeks starting on Monday 26th August and ending Friday 20th of September. Your working days are flexible and can be discussed with your matched business. Work placement is paid at the Real Living Wage of £12/hour and will be paid weekly.


How does it benefit me?

How doesn’t it benefit you should really be the question! We think we’ve covered this one pretty well but as a recap: you’ll get training to upskill in all aspects of digital marketing with expert trainers (who are super engaging & fun) before going on a paid work placement with a local business. You’re gaining in-demand skills, references for the future, great connections & experience! We could go on about the benefits of Dive In Tae Digital all day but we think these are the biggies! 

When do I need to apply by?

Keen to start your digital marketing career? Get your application in before Monday 10th June, 10am.

Who can apply to be an Intern?

We’re super inclusive – everyone is welcome here. We’re looking for hard-working people ready to dive in and change their future. This opportunity is for:

  • 16-30 year olds
  • Living in Dunfermline
  • Currently unemployed or a student

You must be able to commit to two half-day training sessions per week on weeks 1-8 (Tues and Thurs 9.30am-12.30pm) and commit to 14 hours per week of internship for weeks 9-12 (flexible days but typically 2x 7 hour days with breaks). 

When will the internship be?

Dive In Tae Digital has two parts to it – the training and then the internship itself.

Training starts on 2nd July 2024 and runs for 8 consecutive weeks. The training will consist of 2x half day training sessions (6 hours/week) on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9.30am-12.30pm. Training will take place at The Community Hub in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre. 

  • Training week 1: Tuesday 2nd & Thursday 4th July
  • Training week 2: Tuesday 9th & Thursday 11th July
  • Training week 3: Tuesday 16th July & Thursday 18th July

  • Training week 6: Tuesday 6th & Thursday 8th Aug
  • Training week 7: Tuesday 13th & Thursday 15th Aug

All internships will run as follows:

  • Intern week 1: Monday 26th Aug
  • Intern week 2: Monday 2nd Sept

  • Intern week 4: Monday 16th of Sept

Internships are 14 hours per week, to be arranged at a time suitable to both the business and intern e.g. 2 x 7-hour days.

What do I actually have to do?

During the internship, you must turn up on time for every session and work through your intern workbook. It’ll steer you on what to do each day in your internship. We’ll be on hand to answer questions throughout but you’ll have learned everything you need to do in our training session.

Dive In Tae Digital trainers will host one weekly check-in during your internship stage and will also be available for 1-2-1 sessions every week to make sure you’re confident and thriving in your internship. We’re here to support you!

Do I get paid?

Yes! This is something that’s so important to us. We’re sick of seeing internships/work placements advertised with no pay – it’s unfair & unrealistic for people. All of our interns are paid the Real Living Wage of £12 an hour throughout their internship. Your internship is 14 hours per week for four weeks. This equates to £168 per week (or £672 for the full internship). Interns must attend every session to ensure they receive payment.


What about my benefits?
If you’re currently receiving benefits and are worried about the impact a paid work placement may have, we encourage you to apply. We’re running a drop-in session at The Community Hub in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre where you can discuss your individual eligibility before our interview stage starts. Dates and times of this session will be announced shortly – in the meantime, get your application in.
What support will I get during the internship?

We’ll be with you every step of the way! We know this might be exciting and scary all at the same time which is why we’ll be on hand for anything you need. During the training, you’ll be able to ask any questions you might have as well as 1-2-1s with Colleen or Alana so you can pick their brains on anything you’re unsure of. 

Throughout the internship weeks, you have access to weekly 1-2-1s with us to answer any of your questions or address any concerns. You’ll also have a weekly group check-in to make sure everyone is doing well.

How do I apply?

We’re delighted you’re interested in applying & can’t wait to hear from you. All you need to do is fill out this form before 10th June 10am:
