Highers in Business Management and French
BA Hons International Business and Modern Languages
During my university life I had different work experiences including working on open day events for prospective students and also work experience within a telemarketing agency over the summer months.
Upon graduation, I returned to the telemarketing agency that I had completed a summer placement in as a full time employee. I wanted to use my degree in marketing and languages more, within a global organisation. I started looking for jobs based on these interests and criteria, and was lucky to find and secure a job within the Communications Global Business Unit (CGBU) EMEA Marketing team in Oracle, where I have been for almost 1 year.
A variety of skills are required for a Marketing Associate position within the CGBU EMEA Marketing team:
- Related academic degree and credentials
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills
- Team work, time management and strong organisational skills
- Analytical and problem solving skills
- Strong attention to detail and ability to work across events and campaigns simultaneously
- Familiarity with web based applications and information portals
Benefits of the job:
There are many benefits to a role in marketing within the IT industry. The opportunity to organise and run events, support global campaigns and work with different people across teams and locations on a daily basis means that no two days are the same.
It’s an exciting job, which allows me to challenge and push myself. It is very satisfying to run an event and see all the pieces that are needed to come together as a whole.
My aim is to continue to learn and gain experience, whilst developing both my personal and professional skillset in order to further my career.
