Digital Marketing Apprentice

I am a new Digital Marketing Apprentice at soVision IT, within this role I will be working alongside Alexandra and helping to develop and manage digital marketing campaigns, manage websites, and optimize content for the website through social networking channels such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

I have always been interested in Business studies and I knew after I had completed my A-levels that this was the correct pathway for me. When I am not working, I attend a cheerleading club called Bath All Starz. I have been doing this for many years now and have gone to various locations around the UK to compete and bring home trophies/ medals. As well as this I also have a part time job at Marks and Spencer Café. I have thoroughly enjoyed this job for many years working alongside my colleagues to help deliver exceptional service to the customers.

I consider myself to be very hardworking which is why I am excited to broaden my knowledge and I am confident that soVision IT is the best place for me to be able to reach my goals and to start a new career.

I love interacting with people and, where I can, I am always willing to help people achieve their goals.  I am a firm believer in the qualities of integrity and motivation.  At soVision IT, we really do strive to provide the best value for money in all that we do for our customers. 

As MD, I’m responsible for the strategic direction, culture and ultimate growth of the Company. I’m proud of our team. Experienced and with so much talent and a depth of knowledge, they still surprise me every day. 

I’ve had such an interesting career, from being a recognised European expert in Project Management, to being the Managing Director of a Major Division of a global Aerospace Company and Director of one of the UK’s largest Consultancy Operations. These roles have taught me so much about business and people. 

When I am not working, I love my garden and I am an animal lover who loves to be close to nature. My wife calls me Dr Doolittle as I talk to all animals and birds that frequent my garden or I meet in the wild. I love cooking and prepare most of the family’s meals. I must confess I am more experimental than my wife who is also an excellent cook.

Having a technical and mechanical mindset, a career in the IT industry was always the one for me. Offering a constant opportunity to learn, and adapt ever changing solutions to problems, the variety and unpredictable nature of the industry absolutely suited my personality to a tee.  
 
Having now worked in the IT industry for over 16 years, this is as true today as when I began working as a support engineer apprentice for a small business in Gloucestershire in 2004. Whilst my role within soVision IT is a far cry from where my career started, and the challenges have gone from resolving faults for users to finding holistic solutions for businesses, the joy of the challenge and the constantly changing technology remains. 
 
Whilst spare time is a rare commodity with a family, (too) much of it is spent with another love, the four wheeled kind. Ever problematic, cars and engines are an area where I have an opportunity to exercise a totally different set of skills to those required in the office but use the same problem-solving mentality. When looking for some time to relax, coarse fishing or walking are a great opportunity to hit refresh!

I started working for soVision IT in October 2019. After graduating as an Electrical Engineer with a passion for computers and software, I decided to pursue a career in Software Engineering.

I am a software engineer with experience working in a fast-paced digital marketing agency environment, proficient in ASP.NET OOP and .NET Core. I am currently self-teaching myself Azure, AI and Blockchain technology.

I enjoy programming because I like solving problems, relishing opportunities to learn and I get a kick out of the result. My research interest includes cloud computing and blockchain.

I am originally from the Philippines, and I am proud to be Filipino. Working in the United Kingdom is a new challenge for me, but I look forward to challenges as it allows me to discover new knowledge. I have over 5 years of experience working in the IT industry, working with private and public sectors. I aim to give excellent service and customer satisfaction to my clients. The IT industry acquires its people to adopt continuous improvement in acquiring knowledge for growing technology and personal development. This is my core philosophy.

Being a business development manager at soVision IT, I am responsible for helping to find new opportunities, researching leads, establishing good relationships with a potential clients and I enjoy presenting products and services to my clients. My goal is to provide the best quality service and to support their growing business.

Things about me, I love to travel and discover a different culture, food, people and historical architecture of the country. I am the kind of person who loves food but at the same time is health conscious. I love to do different kinds of activities to improve myself and enjoy life outside of the workspace. Part of my daily life is to explore different hobbies and activities like weightlifting, martial arts, photography, crafts, discover the best food from different cuisines. I believe that life should be a balance between working and family.

At soVision IT, I love the variety of working with our different customers both large and small. It’s always rewarding to solve a problem for someone.

I studied Chemistry at The University of Manchester before working at the Met Office. Science then continued as an interest rather than a career as I worked purely as a programmer in the private sector.

I love the adventure of travel and I’m looking forward to exploring the world with my young daughter. I enjoy running, hiking, and have recently got into yoga.

I have been supporting organisations to increase sales through the holistic and strategic use of marketing since 2011 and since 2016 I have happily joined the soVision IT family on their mission to drive growth for our clients. This experience built on the knowledge I have acquired during my BA in PR and Communications, and my MA in Advertising has been crucial in developing successful marketing strategies for businesses from various industries.

I love working with our clients closely in understanding their business needs, knowing their target audience and together finding the best way forward to achieve growth. I like seeing this process as taking our customers on a new journey and holding their hands every step of the way in making sure their business succeeds.

As I am such a growth driven person, in my spare time, you’d find me doing a training on personal development, reading a book on copywriting or psychology, walking in nature or taking piano lessons.
