Hey everyone, my name is Holly and I've just joined Zync as a Digital Marketing Account Manager. I’ve joined the company this week and already can’t wait to get stuck into the exciting new tasks and challenges coming my way!
My background in marketing started as a student at Birmingham City University. I studied Media and Communications, with a focus on organising live music events. Little did I know that the skills used to promote these events on social media would come in very handy when getting into the world of marketing…
After graduating in 2019 I landed a marketing internship for an environmental travel company. The internship helped me to understand the key principles when it comes to marketing a business, and expanded my skills in social media promotion, as well as my design skills, and introduced me to marketing concepts such as field marketing, email and newsletter campaigns. After completing my internship I began my first official marketing role for a mortgage company. This position kick-started my career in marketing for the financial sector.
In 2021 I joined London Mutual Credit Union as their Digital Marketing Officer. I had never heard of Credit Unions before joining, but very quickly learnt the ins and outs of the credit union sector. Working for a non profit organisation who focused on benefiting the community in the heart of South London (where I call home) made the work even more rewarding. In this role I took responsibility for all of their social media platforms, email marketing, design of branch posters and promotional leaflets, and paid advertising campaigns that helped to grow the company and really boosted their presence within the local community.
I can already tell that joining Zync Digital will be the next step in my career and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in with a new style of marketing and making the most of the skills I have picked up so far. Having come from a background of in-house marketing, being part of an agency will be a brand new experience for me, especially working with social enterprises and creating successful digital campaigns for multiple organisations. But, after spending one day in the office and meeting my new team, I can tell I'll be a great fit and will be surrounded by support!
