I was looking forward to starting and joined just as the Great FIG Bake Off commenced- definitely a bonus! A monthly team meeting held on the first Monday of the month kicked off my first week and it proved a great way for me to get an insight into what different members of the team had been working on. From web developers to account executives, it showed me how everyone in the office is valued and how teamwork always gets the job done!
After a very warm welcome, I was given an overview of what I would be working on over the next couple of months. I was introduced to client services and some of the social media accounts that I would be helping out with. It was interesting to learn the dynamics of each of FIG’s marketing partners and the concept of B2B marketing. Adjusting to office life was made easy by a great team and constant encouragement.
Some of the tasks that I carried out in my first week included drafting social content for various social accounts, creating blogs for the FIG site and marketing our very own FIG bake off! FIG has a real sense of community and teamwork, which played such an important part in my experience. It helped grow my confidence in being able to offer suggestions but also learning from people who had a wide range of skills and knowledge between them.
As my time at FIG comes to an end, I reflect only with positive views. It was a great learning experience for me and has given me a valuable insight into a professional environment with a team of experts. The skills that I have gained I will carry through to my future career. In the short amount of time that I’ve spent with the FIG team, I have learnt a lot from all of them and I will definitely use the knowledge I have gained.
