I am Hannah, I’m 17 years old, and my role here at Sokada is Marketing.
I have completed my studies at secondary school, finishing after Year 11. In September 2021, I will be studying at the Fashion Retail Academy, twice a week alongside working at Sokada. Here I will study the Extended Diploma in Fashion Retail, as an equivalent to three A-Levels. I am particularly interested in the business behind fashion, how products become so widely shared due to their marketing campaigns, and how the internet has such power over something being a success or not!
When I’m not at work I love to spend time with friends, go out to explore new places and take lots of pictures on the way. I love to post on my personal Instagram and share the best spots along with the pictures I’ve taken.
Before starting here I worked mostly in hospitality, as a waitress or in the kitchen assisting a caterer. I loved to make everything look presentable so all customers would love the food we’d created. These jobs helped me to become more confident when talking to people and enabled me to develop all kinds of new skills.
I have also worked for an Accountancy firm in Heathfield as a Part-Time Admin. In this job my tasks included writing letters to clients, sending emails and being at the end of the phone for enquiries.
Life at Sokada
Here at work, I will be Marketing, by uploading to Social Media. The aim of this is to spread the “word” and inevitably reach new people, so that they will become even more successful! I will also write and edit interesting blog posts which engage all types of viewers. I know I will really enjoy my work as I have a passion for creating, but also love to think big when thinking of new ideas!
I know how to navigate around social media as I am always using it, so I will constantly be keeping up to date with what people are wanting to see.
I am very excited to work here and show what I can bring to Sokada.
My Typical day at Sokada
I will spend my days at work, researching and creating content for our clients. The social media marketing will include Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter and TikTok. I love to use Instagram in particular as it is so simple to share images with followers and promote further through the Instagram Story feature. I will also use TikTok, which is a very current viral platform where short videos are shared. For many clients this will boost their outreach by promoting products seamlessly to all generations.
