I’ve enjoyed it so far, they have given me a great insight into the marketing sector and have given me loads of useful tips that I hopefully will be able to put to good use in the future. The team are all very kind and welcoming and have been extremely patient with all the questions I have asked. It also surprised me how upbeat and creative the office feels, in comparison to the offices you see in movies and tv shows. It's a brilliant productive environment and if I do go into the marketing sector in the future I hope my workplace is similar to Creative Pod.
To be honest I have always held a genuine interest in business, even when I first started it in Year 10 at secondary school it was the subject I was most passionate about. I thought that a marketing firm would be a good place to go for work experience, as it would give me a better understanding of one of the most important parts of a business. If you can’t market properly then your business won't make it far and if I owned/ran a business one day, I now understand that marketing is a fundamental part of gaining success in your venture.
Uhmm… something random ok, I’m the cousin of Sarah Lyons who is the Head Of Marketing at Creative Pod, she is a really good role model for someone like myself who is trying to make their way into the marketing/business industry. It was thanks to her that I got this incredible experience at Creative Pod so I am extremely grateful for that. She also says “Jelly Babies” really weird…. But I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say that.
After my work experience I will firstly finish my A levels, then after that I hope to secure myself an apprenticeship place at a marketing company near my home city Bristol and start my journey as a marketer!
