What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
I have moved from my first role, from customer service to Marketing. The best things about my role are:
- it's really techy and digital, we have laptops and use Skype for business daily to enable the best communications in the team.
- We solve big problems that can impact a large number of people
- We design all strategy around the communications to the customer, so get to work on new copy and closely with brand
- When things go wrong, they go really wrong. I have worked on issues that have impacted 10,000 people. If we upset a lot of people, we lose the company a lot of revenue.
- We end up encountering the same mistakes over and over again, because we don't have the people/knowledge to fix the absolute root of the problem.
- One defect can impact several groups in different ways, so new problems can come out of existing issues.
- Apology mailings (which is what I predominantly work on) rarely come together well, it gets stuck at various bottlenecks with compliance and the call centres.
What is the annual salary for this role?
