I got into marketing aged 18 when I joined my first employer as a marketing apprentice. I had previously completed a work experience placement in the marketing department, which I really enjoyed, and it was this experience that inspired me to pursue a career in marketing.
I approached the company directly about an apprenticeship as I felt that university wasn’t the right career path for me and was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to start the apprenticeship after completing my A-levels in 2011. During my time there I was promoted twice, and completed a degree in business and marketing funded by the company.
I have been in marketing for more than seven years now, having joined AB Agri as a marketing executive in April 2017, before taking on the role of communications manager for services marketing at Coloplast UK two years later.
