Digital Advertising Executive

Interviewed by
Talia Michaels, Graphic Designer

Talia Michaels

My role at Just R is Digital Advertising Executive. This role entails management of the social media accounts, along with daily check-ins through socials for each of our NHS Trusts, monitoring comments and direct messages as well as ensuring everything is working properly. 

I have always seen myself as having a fulfilling career in the future, but I never really knew what it was I wanted to pursue. Before Just R I was a freelance production assistant working at a small candle business, but still looking for something that would challenge me and help me grow in my personal and professional life. I found out about Just R through my old lecturer at the University of Cumbria, where I graduated with a First Class BA (Hons) in Film and Television. From reading through the Just R website, I thought it would be the perfect place for my next steps in starting a career.

I joined Just R as a Graduate Candidate Consultant and have now progressed into my role as Digital Advertising Executive, which I am finding really interesting and enjoyable. There is such a supportive atmosphere in the office, and being surrounded by career and growth driven individuals is very motivational.
