What is your role at OA?

My role at OA involves everything marketing. This includes social media, creating email campaigns as well as branding documents for both internal and external use.

Relevant experience and expertise?

Here at OA I have joined this great team with my own personal experience and expertise. I have 2 years experience in the social media sector in particular setting up my own clothing brand I do as a hobby.

This has consisted of running social media platforms, creating a website and marketing clothing collections to customers all over the globe.

From previous work experience, I have managed to gain an abundance of creativity from producing advertisements for companies such as Sky sports & bet365. As well as this I have managed to master the basics of digital marketing on how to reach new people and network on all platforms.

Why did you choose OA?

I choose OA because of the people who work here. The people here have a strong work ethic and want to keep excelling the company and are not afraid to experiment new ideas.

The leaders here also have a genuine interest to push you and develop you as a person but also in a career aspect.

What does working at OA mean to you?

Working at OA is both unique and rewarding. Having the creative freedom to start projects and develop the brand as well as sharing success with my colleagues.

Outside of work, what are your hobbies & interests?

Outside of work, I run my own streetwear clothing brand which I have been doing for over a year now. I play Semi-pro football and love keeping in shape and having a balanced diet.

I also enjoy going out with friends and visting nice restaurants.
