Growth & Transparency

We understand that for many small businesses that have great growth potential, finding the resources to start your journey in performance marketing and unlock that growth can be a daunting task. We recommend starting with our Academy. In this instance, our academy members, who have completed their theoretical and practical training, manage your account, under the mentorship of the Academy Lead and various Senior Performance Marketers within the team. The goal is dual growth: your business grows hand-in-hand with the academy member - and ultimately, you both “graduate” to the agency within a few months.

Part one of the R17 Academy apprenticeship programme sees academy members taken through a theoretical module that provides an in-depth understanding of performance marketing, gaining invaluable knowledge of ad platforms, sales funnels and strategy building, while also gaining accreditations in Google Ads and Klaviyo.



In part two of this career acceleration programme, academy members get to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical way - getting hands-on experience in creating strategies, campaign set-up and management, optimisation and reporting, guided, mentored, assisted and checked by our experienced team.



Upon completion of the R17 Academy, apprentice performance marketers that have shown strong resolve, understanding and passion will stand a chance of working at R17 as a fully fledged junior performance marketer, enjoying all the perks available to our staff.
