What is Alpha Foundations
Why do Alpha Foundations
Every year as our industry expands, the Alpha Foundations program adapts with it.
Digitally-focused and performance-driven by heritage, we set a high standard for ourselves on the experience and mentorship we can offer. We provide you with an invaluable foundation from which to launch your digital marketing career.
The ultimate goal of Alpha Foundations is to equip you with a breadth of knowledge across key specialty areas of digital marketing to find the niche that ignites your passion. Once you’ve found it, Alpha Foundations will set you up to embark on a rewarding career, guiding and empowering you to succeed. Based on the work you do as part of your cohort, high performance associates will be selected and offered a permanent full-time role in their chosen specialty.
When can I apply
Foundations program applications open June 2022 and the program itself starts in January 2023, running for 12 months until the end of the work calendar year. If you don’t quite make the deadline for this year’s intake, rest assured we’ll be doing it all again in 2023.

How does it work
The ‘find what you love’ block
During the first 6 months, associates rotate around each department in the business – Digital Experience, Paid Media, Creative and Client Solutions. At Alpha Digital, we expose our associates to a wide variety of digital marketing services to foster collaborative learning, curiosity, and then the opportunity to apply and iterate.
The ‘deepen your knowledge’ block
Based on exposure to each department and the work completed during the initial 6 months, associates will then be given the opportunity to spend the next 6 months deep diving into a preferred specialty department.
This time is all about immersing yourself in your chosen specialty area with more intensive training programs as well as providing the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to deliver real value to clients.

“The grad program was an invaluable opportunity I couldn’t recommend more highly. It provided me with in-depth foundational knowledge across the digital marketing landscape that I continue to use today.
