I joined five years ago on a temporary contract after completing my degree. I’m now Marketing Manager for Funky Pigeon. Although I didn’t have ecommerce or advertising experience, the business believed in me and gave me the opportunity. I love the responsibility and autonomy my role brings; there’s a fresh challenge every day. Funky Pigeon is an up-and-coming part of the business, so there’s always room to grow.
In Marketing, there are people with many different skills. You get to gain exposure to different roles and the opportunity to learn from the best. You need to work hard, but there’s a real team environment – everyone’s pulling together. The opportunities are there, you just need to show that you’re willing to stretch yourself!
