SSE plc confirmed as sponsors of Creative Data Academy Edinburgh


For the third year in a row, the Creative Data Academy is heading north to Edinburgh to give 30 aspiring data-driven marketers in and around Edinburgh the opportunity to connect with employers and discover the wide variety of roles available in the industry.

Having already travelled to London and Manchester in April, Edinburgh’s academy is the last of 2019 and we’re delighted to announce SSE plc as sponsors. We’d also like to say a special thank you to The DMTrust who are supporting the entire Creative Data Academy programme through the Derek Holder Legacy Fund.

Across the three days, students will listen to talks from industry experts and data specialists, and put their skills to the test by working on a brief set by SSE plc. Members of the SSE plc team will set the brief on the first day and the students will pitch their responses to them on the final day of the academy.

Scott Davies, Integrated Comms Planning & Strategy Manager at SSE plc, said:

“SSE are thrilled to sponsor the Creative Data Academy for the first time this year. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to share insight into the opportunities and challenges that exist within our sector and we are especially excited by the prospect of learning from the young minds that will shape our industry in the future.”

You can follow all the action over the three days on twitter either via our page @DMATalent or #CreativeDataAcademy.

DMA Talent will run academies next year, as well as 1 day hackathon labs in various locations across the UK. If you’re seeking the next generation of fresh data talent and would like to be the subject of one of our programmes, we’d love to hear from you! Drop us an email to find out more
