I’m Kieran, I’m 22 years old, and I’m working at Sokada doing online marketing for our clients. Having lived in Heathfield pretty much all my life; I have a good understanding of the local area. I’ve also previously worked on local community social media pages for businesses and local authorities.
I recently graduated from the University of Sussex where I studied Media & Communications. The course was aimed at discussing the role that media plays in society. My degree has provided me with a valuable insight into how social media is used by businesses to promote their brand and connect with their customers.
Outside of work and studying, I do a fair bit of gaming (although not to the same level as Jamie!). I enjoy real-world simulation games such as X-Plane and Train Simulator. Although I can’t fly a plane or drive a train, I still enjoy trying to perfect my flying and driving skills.
My last job was working at Starbucks alongside my studies at University. I really enjoy making (and drinking) good coffee; so if you see me in the office, I’ll undoubtedly have a coffee cup (or two!) on my desk. Whilst I loved my job at Starbucks, I’m happy that I’m moving on to something more related to my field of study.
A few years ago I secured a casual six month contract funded by a grant from Heathfield & Waldron Parish Council. This contract was to help setup and operate a social media strategy for Heathfield. In this role, I was responsible for guiding a range of public sector organisations and local businesses to post engaging content.
Life at Sokada
My life at Sokada is working to improve our clients visibility online, through blog-writing, keyword research, or using social media.
However, Marketing is not the only thing I’m doing; my writing skills also come in handy when it comes to content writing for new websites.
Having already worked alongside both Julian and Jude, I know that I work well with both of them. They both have a real passion for the work that they do, and their attentiveness serves them both well in this field of work. It will be a real pleasure to work with them once again to provide the best marketing and websites for our clients.
My commute to work is also a short walk down the road, which is absolutely perfect!
A typical day at Sokada
My day at Sokada will be working on online marketing tasks such as writing blog posts, posting on client’s social media pages, and content writing for new websites. I will also be completing a few office admin tasks from time to time, to keep the office organised.
