REAL ROLE MODEL


Jessica Wilbraham
Junior Digital Marketing Assistant
Brother UK
WHAT DO YOU DO?

I assist with site maintenance & product launches. I also help manage external sites such as our channel platform, BrotherZone.

WHAT SKILLS DO YOU USE MOST IN YOUR JOB?
  • Communication with wider Marketing team
  • Manage my own workload
  • Meeting deadlines for different tasks
  • Using different types of software and digital platforms
WHAT'S THE MOST INTERESTING THING YOU'VE WORKED ON IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

Last year I built the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) hub on our website. I was involved in the process from start to finish and it was really nice to see the end result.

WHAT'S YOUR EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND?

I completed my GCSE’s and A-levels and applied for university but changed my mind last-minute. I researched different types of digital apprenticeships and attended a bootcamp day at the Juice Academy, where I chose to do an apprenticeship with Brother.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO INTO DIGITAL & TECH?

I've always been interested in the digital world, especially social media. It's really exciting to see how quickly things change and all the new things that are happening.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO GIRLS THINKING ABOUT A CAREER IN DIGITAL AND TECH?

Research all of the different areas within ‘digital’. There’s so many you could specialise in and you might prefer one over another. Go for it! The future is digital so there's no limit to what you can do.
