It’s week 7 of meet the team and this week we’ve put our apprentice Ellie in the spotlight! Find out what we wanted to know!

Has marketing always been a passion or did you originally want to pursue something else?
Originally, I wanted to be in the sports industry.  After school, I went to college to study a sport BTEC level 3 course but after completing it I realised that sport limited me to certain jobs such as, being a personal trainer, PE teacher or coach. So, I then thought media / digital industry as I studied media at school and enjoyed it and thought it would be a good direction to go in as there are many sections that I could work in and now everything is technology based or going digitally.

Would you eat a bowl of live worms for £40,000?
Yes, I would! Haha…

What would you like to be doing work wise in 5 years’ time?
Hopefully still at The Bright Click! I want to be in a job position that I know that I am going to be there for a long time. By then I would have hopefully gained lots of experience so I could eventually have a higher position in a team.

What’s your worst bad habit?
I’d say my worst habit is eating too quickly, as soon as the food is served it’s basically gone! I don’t mean to do it but always have done.

What’s attracted you to digital marketing?
My mum used to work in a marketing / media company and she has always said that it was the most enjoyable place she has ever worked in. Ever since then I have always wanted to know more and see what the industry has to offer. Digital marketing has a lot of different areas to work in and I thought it was a good place to start my career as you get to learn lots of skills from every different area of the industry.

Where’s your dream holiday?
My dream holiday would be to go to Australia. I have a massive passion for travelling so if I was to go there I would want to see the whole country and explore everywhere.

If you had to be on a reality TV show which one would you choose?
Hmm, that’s a good question! If I was famous, I would probably say I’m a Celebrity because I’d love to live in the jungle camp, laugh at all the celebs when they get angry because they’re hungry and try attempt all the challenges.

What are you most afraid of and what is stopping you doing it?
I used to love heights but as I have got older the love for them went after I visited the shard a few years back. I am most afraid of heights but the thing is I would love to sky dive when I go travelling but I can’t say that I won’t be scared…

What appealed to you the most about working at The Bright Click?
I have always liked media and marketing and when I saw there was a position to be an apprentice and work in Teddington (Where I live) I thought I couldn’t miss this opportunity! The main thing that attracted me to working here was the friendly feel I got from the website and when I came in for the interview. I also wanted to try something new and I wanted to learn more about digital marketing.

If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
I went for a meal once at The Bluebird restaurant in Chelsea. All I can say is wow, the food was amazing. If I could afford it I would eat there all the time.

You have a client who doesn’t like something that you have worked hard on – would you take it personally?
I wouldn’t take it personally as not every client is going to love everything you produce. I would be disappointed that they were not keen on my ideas, but it can always be edited and changed to suit them. I would endeavour to speak to the client and give them other options to ensure that they are happy and we sorted out the problems.

Online shopping or shopping centre?
Online has more options so I’d pick that, but I HATE when the delivery comes and it doesn’t fit properly or look right. ☹
