Head of Mobile Advertising & Managed Partners
Vodafone since: January 2005
Engaging, exciting, ever changing, challenging. Vodafone is a company where there are many opportunities to broaden your experience and take on challenges, while at the same time ensuring there is some fun along the way
One of the most memorable moments was moving into the new Vodafone building at the Viaduct; it felt like the first day at school for months!
Another highlight would be the launch of 3G, there was a big build up and a lot of fun and hype around it (including the 3G branded underwear!)
I work essentially with Digital Agencies, Media Agencies and marketing managers. We look for opportunities where Vodafone can assist in broadening the marketing and advertising channel mix with Vodafone's technologies, providing a richer experience for our customers.
I have had some fantastic opportunities to learn and develop since I have been at Vodafone, and I have made some significant career changes. I started as a Marketing Analyst working with the Business Marketing Team, and now head up the Managed Partners and Mobile Advertising areas. Vodafone is a place which rewards performance, and also encourages people to broaden their experience. If you look out for the opportunities and are prepared to take on the challenge, the opportunities are there. One of the highlights for me was doing an internal development course. I learnt a lot about myself, both personal and in the working environment that gave me the confidence to take on some new challenges.
