Case Studies

  • Name: Holly Ditcham
  • Role: Graduate Marketing Executive

Description:

Tell us a little about yourself

I’m the Graduate Marketing Executive at Legerity. I graduated from Loughborough University in 2020 with a 1st class degree in Geography and Management.

What made you want to work for Legerity?

When I was searching for jobs after leaving university, I found that many of the graduate schemes on offer included various rotations and job descriptions often included a lot of low responsibility tasks. When I came across the job description for my role at Legerity I was excited about how focused it was on what I was interested in – marketing. I knew that I wasn’t going to be passed around different departments, only getting involved at a surface level. Just from researching the company, and seeing the previous graduate testimonials, I knew this was a great opportunity to learn and kick-start my career.

What have you learnt in your first 6 months working at Legerity?

From my first day working at Legerity I have learnt in real life, practical terms how to implement all the knowledge I gained during my degree. I have been responsible for things such as building our marketing database, CRM, copywriting and editing, as well as working directly on our recent Live Webinar – Legerity’s FastPost Showcase. Every day is different and there are always new things to learn and projects to get involved with. I have always had a great amount of support from colleagues who have been pivotal in helping me develop new skills.

What have you enjoyed most since working at Legerity?

I have most enjoyed the amount of responsibility and autonomy I have been given at Legerity since the day I joined. Even though you are just starting in your career, you are treated equally to other colleagues and your opinion is valued and listened to. I know that the work I am doing is important and Legerity’s management takes into consideration everyone’s strengths and interests when delegating, so you are working on projects you genuinely care about. There is also a tremendous amount of encouragement from colleagues and your line manager. The company’s culture is one of support and mutual respect and this is what makes working for Legerity so enjoyable.

Would you recommend a Graduate role at Legerity?

I would recommend any graduate to apply for a role at Legerity. Having recently graduated, I know how common it is to end up in a grad role where you are doing tedious, menial tasks that are undervalued and do not demonstrate your full potential. That’s not the case at Legerity. I have found a role where I feel like a valued member of the team, with tremendous support and, most importantly, brilliant opportunities for career progression.
