If you are an OG supporter of Digital Mavericks and been keeping upto date with our scaling journey, then you will know that our Founder Soph is a huge supporter of non traditional routes to finding your dream job! You don’t always need a degree to make it and especially not in the world of Digital. Just a camera and a dream!

I started of in local government comms as an apprentice through CIM at 28, then won a competition with Digital Mums and AFF (the Army Families Federation) to level up her social media skills and created her first social media course for military spouses 2 years ago. At DMs we offer a range of different digital courses, coming this year. But I am acutely aware of the state of employment right now and while we are all wreathing the same storm… we aren’t all in the same boat!

That’s why we wanted to create this artickle to provide all the links to FREE social media courses that anyone can take advantage of to upskill this year!
