1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


I provide support across all three verticals of Aon Affinity’s – Professional Services Group, Small Medium Enterprise and Affinity Practices Group (APG) – helping the marketing mangers/executives with ad- hoc tasks. I also support our analytics and insight managers with frequent research; providing an internal insight and competitor newsletter each month which is distributed throughout the business.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


Recently I have been asked to support our E-Commerce Manager. This has involved content editing, development and writing HTML code for our website, . I have been taught how to use a Content Management System (CMS) called Sitecore which allows us too manipulate/create/edit any piece of content we write and develop it online.

I became a Financial Promotions approver which involves understanding the FCA guidelines and applying them to a piece of marketing material to make sure it is approved by Compliance for sign off.

Each week I support our Ecommerce manager by conducting a Webmaster- Search Query Tracker on Google Analytics so we are able to analyse where our highest click through rate is coming from our website and from an organic search on Google.
