    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • Daily tasks included producing a daily orderbook for the commercial team, completing quotations for customers and responding to any email enquiries. I was responsible for producing weekly orderbooks for key customers and also had monthly reports. Marketing tasks were also prominent as I was the main marketing employee at the site. I worked in the commercial office for most of the year, which prior to the pandemic had around 20+ employees full time.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • I developed my Microsoft skills further, particular excel as this is probably the software I used the most. I learnt how to navigate Adobe InDesign which is a software we use for marketing tasks. Regular communication with customers allowed my communication skills to develop further.
