Rosie Graves, Client Engagement and Marketing Manager at Natterjack Marketing, is a testament to this alternative education approach.
“I began my CIM journey in 2016, I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today in my career without the fantastic support I received from Veronica. I went from being a school leaver who didn’t really know what she wanted to do, to a marketing professional who is driven and determined to have the best career possible, whilst maintaining a healthy work-life balance. As well as the skills I learned from the CIM modules, completing the qualification while working taught me how to manage my time effectively but also, how to implement the skills I was learning into the real world. Seven years on and I am still loving the chaos of the marketing industry, and as the trends of the digital world of marketing change daily, I am always learning – which is another aspect of my career that I love, it most certainly is not boring!”
