Work Experience // Alex Drysdale and Hannah Charlton
Hello! I’m Alex and I’ve just finished studying Media, Film and English Language at Wyke College. I’m now taking a gap year and hope to go to university next year to study Media Communications and Culture.
I’ve just completed my week’s work experience at StrawberryToo and all I can say is that it’s been A-C-E. The week’s given me an insight into what working for a real agency and real clients would be like and I’ve really enjoyed that.
I’ve done bits of work experience and volunteered at other companies over the past few months, but being at StrawbToo has been the best experience by far - I was given the opportunity to really put my ideas into the briefs!
During my week in the studio I worked on social media content, blogging, sales emails and tonnes more! The best thing about working on so many briefs is how creative each one allowed me to be; I had the freedom to take them into any direction.
Team Too were so helpful and they create such a great atmosphere to work in! Rachel and Beckie helped with any questions I had and would give me loads of additional information to help me to create some great work – massive thanks to those two!
StrawberryToo, you’ve been ace!
Thank you for all the help and experience.
Hi, I’m Hannah and I’ve been on marketing work experience with StrawberryToo.
I’ve really been enjoying working my way through the exciting briefs that I’ve been set by the team!
After graduating from Northumbria University and working on multiple projects, I really wanted to delve into the world of creative marketing to see if it was for me. I didn’t expect to be given the opportunity to contribute towards real briefs, including social media and email campaigns! The week has offered me an honest experience of what working in a digital marketing agency is like.
I’ve found that I really enjoy the fast-paced project work that working across multiple clients provides.
Because StrawbToo attract a range of interesting clients it keeps the work fun and varied! Each brief challenged me to channel my creative ideas with a think-outside-the-box mentality.
The studio is a great environment to work in and the encouragement from the team has really helped me along the way, so thank you very much for the opportunity!
