The Veterinary Marketing Association (VMA) is calling on young marketeers or their colleagues for nominations for the VMA Young Marketeer Bursary Award 2013.
Sponsored by British Dairying magazine and supported by the VMA, the successful candidate will receive £500 cash as well as a £2,000 bursary for their ongoing training and development.
Award organiser James Crawford said: “The award is for the person who stands out as showing promise in the field of marketing within the animal health sector. The successful candidate, aged 35 or under, will also receive ongoing support and advice from a VMA committee of industry professionals.”
Last year’s winner, Anna Prest (pictured) – brand manager for Lintbells – has put the bursary towards a three-day residential course entitled Foundations of Marketing Strategy in Practice.
She explained: “My aim is to bring a more strategic proposition to the company in the future. For anyone considering a nomination, it’s important to see where that person can go in his or her career and what he or she has achieved so far. To be a successful marketer you need to work for a company or in an industry you are passionate about.”
A shortlist of three candidates will be selected to meet representatives from the VMA and the bursary sponsor to discuss their nomination in more detail. The awards event takes place on March 14, 2014 at Lancaster Hotel, London, where the winning candidate will be presented with their bursary prize.
