Aaron Bradley joined MJM Group last week on work placement prior to beginning our Navigate Apprenticeship Programme this September.  He will be blogging his experiences throughout the programme.

Read his first impressions of life at MJM Group below:

“Last week, MJM Group welcomed Aaron Bradley on a placement prior to beginning our Navigate Apprenticeship Programme in September.  We are delighted to have him aboard. This is Aaron’s first impression of MJM Group.

Prior to starting a Higher Level Apprenticeship in Digital Marketing, Advertising and Communications in September, MJM Group (MJM Marine, Mivan and Topglass) kindly gave me a placement opportunity within their marketing department until then. I came in with no digital marketing experience and on my very first day, I learned more than I expected to learn in the first month!

I was straight into some digital tenders, where I sat and observed the types of clients the company work with and how important decisions are made within the company. When observing the tenders I learned a lot, such as; how websites are made using different content management systems like WordPress, some of the reasons why certain techniques are used in website design in order to make a website look more professional and luxurious, and also learned how analytics intelligence is used and how useful a tool it can be.

I also received an introduction to the planning for The Ballykelly Engine Show 2020, hosted by MJM Group, for which I will have a challenging but rewarding role in assisting with the marketing for the show. Our aim will be to more than double the turnout of last year’s show, and I would be hugely proud to say I was part of the team who made this happen.

Each of my colleagues made me feel extremely welcome and a real part of the team in my first week – starting from day one – and I look forward to learning so many more things in the field of digital marketing while on this exciting placement journey.”
