CONTENT MARKETER

The eQS Company

When we think about education, we think about the wonderment of learning and the endless opportunities in life it can bring. But what if there are barriers to learning?

Assistive technology (AT) is designed to improve an individual’s ability to access the world around them, such as accessing learning in education, the workplace and the wider world.

eQuality Solutions is a group of sister companies that share a passion for supporting inclusivity and neurodiversity with personalised learning solutions.

This passion stems from our founder, Chris Quickfall, who discovered he was dyslexic when he was 21, whilst studying at university. Having experienced the equipment and services available first-hand, Chris’ desire to improve the quality of support for all higher education students receiving Disabled Students Allowance (DSA), fuelled the launch of our three companies.

eQuality Solutions is made up of Invate, an AT equipment and software provider, e-Quality Learning, a one-to-one AT training provider, and Learning Labs, an AT e-learning portal.

Our goal is to help people to get the most out of their assistive technology (AT), and therefore, achieve their full potential in life.

Dear marketing professional,

Use this New Year to Achieve your 2020 Marketing Career Goals

This New Year, as your sat back at your desk confronting the dozens of unopened emails, you may start to contemplate your career goals for 2020…

Now, should you be feeling open to an entirely new career move, here’s a bit about our marketing team for you to ponder over…

  • We think learning is awesome. Everyone should have access to lifelong learning.
  • We aim to make a positive difference in society – it’s our legacy!
  • We take a fearless approach to creativity – otherwise, how can you call ti creative?
  • We tell it how it is, because straight-talking team-players make the strongest teems.
  • We make it our job to have plenty of fun while reaching business goals.

Like the sound of this? Then take a look at our new Content Marketing role we are recruiting for in January 2020. See how we did that? 😉

One last thing, before we sign off, you need only write back if you have spotted all the errors in this letter. We went a little slap-dash drafting this because we knew the right person for the job will be able to help us in refining our content.

On that note, within your application, please list all the spelling and grammatical errors, plus any ideas of how we could have done this better. Think about presentation, design, was the tone too cheezy or did it do just the trick at catching your attention?

Make sure you start 2020 off right. We look forward to hearing from you, our future eQS Content Marketer.

Best wishes,

 

Your future Sales and Marketing Team.
