However, now, as Senior Policy and Campaigns Officer, on a day-to-day basis I am key to decisions about how we campaign and what we campaign on. I confidently research and write policy reports for our campaigns and know I can clearly put forward their findings to news colleagues, Martin, regulators and Government.
A key to my development has been taking every opportunity at MoneySavingExpert to learn (sometimes asking for new opportunities when there weren't any readily available!) and to throw myself into challenging situations. However, despite my enthusiasm, the amount I've been allowed to grow would never have been possible without the advocacy and encouragement of my amazing team, and the developmental opportunities at MoneySavingExpert as a whole.
And, as a bonus, more than the career potential MoneySavingExpert holds, it's a joy to work somewhere with such a clear and ethical mission. Everything we do is about helping consumers all over the UK. Having such a strong sense of purpose that filters into every role in the company - writers, product designers, tech - boosts your spirits and makes it easy to give it 100%.
