How has your career developed during your time at Moneysupermarket Group?
I've been promoted twice since I started here in early 2017. I started out as an Associate and I was lucky to have a really good manager who showed a lot of belief and care in my learning. Since my first few months, I've gradually been involved in bigger and more wider impacting projects that has helped our Digital marketing team be as efficient and profitable as possible. I've also had the opportunity to further my education on the Digital operations role by combining mine and my colleagues role when he went on a 6 month sabbatical in 2019. This allowed me get a much more rounded understanding of my team, not just focus on my side of the fence but get a feel for my colleagues responsibilties too. Now, I'm a senior Digital Operations Executive and I supervise/mentor the new Digital Operations Associate who joined the team in late 2019.
