within the business:
|Regional Marketing Assistant (South)|
|No of years in the business:||3.5 years|
|Region:||Home based, Gloucestershire.|
Tell us about your role, what do you do?
My current role as Regional Marketing Coordinator involves lots of variety. This includes office time based from home, setting up and attending events, meetings and travel as part of this. A large proportion of my job is taken up by event planning for the Agrii iFarms, AgriiFocus events and external events including shows for the teams for which I am responsible for, shared between my colleagues in the marketing team.
The rest of my time is split between administrative tasks, merchandise requirements, literature updates, customer communications and other team marketing requirements such as sponsorships and adverts.
How did you get started in your role?
I came from The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) in Cirencester having completed a degree in food and Agribusiness which included a good grounding in marketing. I came across Agrii and it seemed like a great fit!
What do you love most about your job?
The variety; no one day is the same. Even if you are working from home, you never know exactly what you’ll be doing on that day. Time always flies! As part of a small team, our working days are always reactive and flexible to what the highest needs are at that time, so you’re kept on your toes and never bored.
What is the biggest challenge you face in your role and why?
While also being part of what I love about the job, the reactive nature can sometimes be a challenge. Knowing what to prioritise at busy times can be tricky. Multitasking is key! Working remotely from the rest of the team and from the agronomy teams can also be challenging, so regular communication and coordination is key.
In one word, how would you describe being an employee of Agrii?
Whirlwind, in a good way! 3 years have flown by.
Fun Fact about yourself?
On one working day a while back now, I jumped 40ft off a platform onto a giant cushion at the Showman’s Show that my manager Sarah and I attended to look at new event equipment because our event company contact at the time dared me to!
Take us through a day in your life.
Well, we’re in unprecedented times, and the current climate has really affected business as usual for many of us. My typical day is actually what I’d be doing under normal circumstances for an Agrii event
