Digital Marketing Apprentice
After graduating from the University of Lincoln with a Graphic Design degree, I found myself unsure of the career path I wanted to take and what industry I aspired to be in. My past work experience has seen me work in a variety of roles within the events industry and even my local police force! But I always found my creative spark was missing in these roles.
After reading up on digital marketing, I instantly realised that it sounded like the perfect fit for me as it would allow me to put my existing skills in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop to good use, all while expanding my capabilities in the digital world. I have joined Fishtank as a Digital Marketing Apprentice to kickstart my career and learn all things digital from a fantastic team.
Upon joining Fishtank, I have already started learning about content writing, social media management and have learned how data can be utilised to benefit companies when making those all-important business decisions. I already know that I am going to learn so much more whilst I’m here! I’ve been surrounded by a fantastic team who together share a wealth of knowledge and experience of working in a fast-paced digital marketing agency.
I started as Fishtank’s second-ever Digital Marketing Apprentice in September 2022. As soon as I arrived I couldn’t wait to start learning about the techniques and nuances of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Google Ads and content writing from the SEO and PPC experts here in Fishtank’s Digital Marketing Team. I also couldn’t wait to dive into the more creative and client-facing aspects of working in a digital marketing and web development agency, such as visual designing and getting to know everything about Fishtank’s clients from around the world. I’m naturally a very creative and passionate person, so as soon as I walked into the studio I knew I was going to fit right in.
I’m excited to start learning and working through my coding and Google Analytics modules as part of my apprenticeship course run by the Estio Training College, as well as from watching the team and learning from them day-to-day. I have already sat in on client calls, shadowing my mentor and Head of Digital Ola Tambor, with clients such as Storm Internet and look forward to getting involved in client meetings in the future and putting my own ideas forward. I love helping people, achieving goals and going above and beyond in everything I do. I am so excited to have the opportunity to achieve all of this at Fishtank whilst developing and building my existing skills with the goal to flourish in a career that I love.
Life Outside Fishtank
Outside the Tank, you can find me either at a variety of different music gigs and festivals or cuddled up in bed with a Chinese takeaway watching Criminal Minds for the 15th time!
Bucket List Best Bits
Me and my partner absolutely love all things Disney, especially Marvel, so the biggest thing on my bucket list is to spend 2 weeks at Disney World, Florida – that would be the dream!
I would also love to complete a bungee jump – I’ve previously jumped out of a plane (with a parachute of course!) and it was one of the best experiences of my life, so I would love to see if bungee jumping provides the same thrill.
