Tell us a little bit about yourself!
I’m Ellen, I’m 21 years old and have just graduated from the University of Nottingham studying English. I’m from Essex and my biggest goal is to be able to travel and meet as many people from around the world as possible.
Give us some fun facts about you!
I have a twin sister and three other siblings, so I have always been used to a busy and hectic lifestyle! Over the years I’ve tried numerous hobbies– netball, piano, clarinet, football (for a very brief and unsuccessful period of time), cricket, ballet, and musical theatre. My friends would describe me as crazily busy as I’m always piling projects onto my plate and am constantly in search of the next challenge or adventure!
Give us three emojis to describe your first impressions of the team!
The computer emoji because they’re all tech wizzes with a lot of knowledge about things I didn’t even know existed! The handshake emoji because even remotely everyone was very welcoming, and I can already tell they care about working together as a successful team. The T-shirt because I was very happy to hear that they take a relaxed and casual approach to workwear (particularly since on my first day it was 28 degrees!)
What will be your biggest challenge in your first few weeks?
My biggest challenge will be settling into a full time remote working week as I’m so used to being out and about and seeing lots of people.
Where did you hear about us and why did you choose us?
This role was advertised on a recruitment agencies page at my university. I thought it would be so exciting to branch out and start working for a company working in a completely new field to me. I think working with ID will be great for me as I’ll be able to work alongside their current marketing strategist and eventually learn how to develop and implement successful marketing strategies of my own.
