We are EA

We’re Electronic Arts’ Marketing, Commercial, and Positive Play Organization (MCP). Our teams build meaningful relationships with hundreds of millions of players around the world who love our games. We aim to be the best at meeting players where they are and supporting them throughout their EA journey. Our teams develop the strategic vision of our games; execute multi-channel campaigns; build global engagement; develop global insights; and we accelerate sales and publishing efforts worldwide. Most importantly, we do all of this by understanding – and celebrating – the diversity of our players, so we can deliver the content they want when and where they want it.

The Challenge Ahead:

Our remit covers a vast range of topics and responsibilities. Working with clubs, leagues, players, agencies and our community in campaigns throughout the season and creating new and exciting activations are the bread and butter of the work we do.

As part of these, you will work on social and community engagement through building loyalty, igniting social advocacy at scale, with local relevance, with local players, communities and influencers. While supporting the existing team is one area, you will also lead projects on your own.

You will receive comprehensive training on all aspects of up-to-date integrated product marketing and communications and we also have a mentorship program in place, as your professional development is a key aspect for us. Even though marketing will be your primary field, we offer you opportunities to learn more about other areas of our business. And no, you don't have to make coffee for the team or stand on the copy machine all day!

The traineeship will last between 18 to 24 months.
