“Setting up my own business was something I had planned on doing further down the line but actually it is probably one of the best things I could have done.”
“As a graduate, you don’t know how to set up by yourself, so it isn’t even seen as an option for many students; they don’t know how to run a business. That’s why Victoria’s course is so great”

Marketing Mavericks is specifically tailored towards graduates who have been taught universal academic skills such as researching, analysing and interpersonal skills. However, previous students have included 1st year Students and also those who have been in full-time or alternative work since graduating but were interested in a change to self-employment.
This programme is specifically designed for a Marketing Graduate to become a Marketing Freelancer or Consultant. If your course is related to a form of marketing, such as journalism/PR or graphic design, then you could certainly jump on board with us and learn how to go freelance in your chosen field as a specialist. However, the programme isn’t set up to guide Graduates into other consultancy roles such as finance or HR.
Yes! Stage 3 of the Marketing Mavericks programme is ready for those businesses who are set up and need to learn more about structure, accounts, IR35, GDPR and most importantly, looking after clients. Please contact us directly to have a chat.
