This July, degree certificate in hand, I said goodbye to The University of Leeds and the world of English Literature. As a squeaky-clean graduate, I stepped out into the job market with big ambitions in search of my first step on the career ladder. With amazing luck, I am now an official member of the Den here at Fox Agency, in my role as Marketing and Media Executive.
When I started my job hunt, I had no idea what I wanted. I had little to no clue about what the working world could offer me or which direction I wanted to take. What I did know, however, is that I work best in a fast-paced environment.
I knew that I wanted to be genuinely interested in what I was doing and that I wanted to be creative and still nurture my love for writing that I strengthened during my degree. It didn’t take me long to realise that an agency, or more specifically Fox Agency, fitted the bill perfectly and would be the perfect environment to grow as a professional and explore the world of marketing.
My first few weeks
Here at Fox, I am building the foundations of my marketing career and am humbled to be working alongside incredibly knowledgeable people. With their encouragement, in my short time here I have already completed a course on Google Analytics, produced competitor analysis and even contributed to a global video campaign.
Fox agency has a wealth of diverse clients, campaigns and expertise, so in the coming months, I will be rotating through each department in order to work directly within each team. I am keen to engage with every aspect of the company, so am really looking forward to my rotations and to witness how each part of the agency ticks.
Life in the den
The people at Fox have been remarkably welcoming and it’s hard to believe how quickly two weeks has passed. From golf games in the hallway, to visits from a masseuse, Fox’s work culture is far from ordinary. The office is dynamic, to say the least, and is undoubtedly supportive of staff wellness and well-being. What’s more, I am even now a regular at the weekly Personal Training sessions in Meanwood Park – for anyone that knows me well, you’ll know this is a big deal!
I am extremely grateful for this huge opportunity Fox has given me and their overwhelming support. I have entered the realm of B2B, and I couldn’t be more excited.
At Fox Agency, we try hard to create a positive, enjoyable working environment. If that’s up your street, check out our job listings.
