It’s National Apprenticeship Week, and we’re proud to shout about the young creative talent on our team.
Most recently, we’re delighted to have welcomed Content Creator Hannah to the team, who joins us while completing an apprenticeship with The Juice Academy.
You may be wondering what a day in the life looks like for a Content Creator at a marketing & PR agency… Well, look no further, as Hannah has given us the lowdown on what a typical day looks like…
How do you start your day?
I start my mornings bright and early with a cup of coffee, to get me energised for the day. After spending more time than I should scrolling on TikTok, it’s time to make my way to the train station. Being able to listen to my latest song obsession while staring out onto the Manchester skyline is always a good start to the day! Once I arrive, I make my way through the Northern Quarter and head up to the office.
What do you do when you get to the office?
After catching up with the team, I normally start the day with some engagement on our client’s social media platforms, making sure I’m replying to any messages, comments, and tags. Once done, I get ready for our team meeting. This is where we have a run-down of all client activity, reflect on any reactive content, and discuss any new and exciting projects! This also gives me the time to go through my tasks with my line manager, James, and just check that I understand everything. Before starting my apprenticeship, I was nervous that I wouldn’t pick things up or make mistakes, but since starting, I’ve learned that this is normal and totally okay! This is one of the great things about being an apprentice, as we are fully supported when learning new skills and industry knowledge.
My role as a Content Creator normally means my mornings consist of creating graphics and planning fun video ideas for some of our clients. After this, I check my to-do list, grab a drink, and start working on the social content for a few of our clients until it’s time for lunch!
Talk us through your afternoon.
For lunch, I normally go for a classic meal deal; however, sometimes I do treat myself to a trip to The Vurger Co. (I highly recommend the vegan honey chicken burger). I love being so central, as there is endless choice when it comes to food spots. Once back at the office, James and I might have a meeting with a client where we go through the planned content for the month, or I might be taking a trip back out to film some content! I recently did a reel about the best coffee shops near Piccadilly, which was a lot of fun (I also got to have more coffee). As it gets closer to the end of the day, I normally do some content scheduling for clients, making sure that everything is ready to go out on socials. Before I know it, it’s time to finish up my day! Before leaving, I normally double-check that I’ve ticked everything off my list and plan what needs to be done the next day, then finally head to the train station for the journey home.
What do you like most about being an apprentice?
After graduating from university with a sociology degree, I soon realised it wasn’t what I really wanted to do as a career and that I instead wanted to follow my creative passion. The only problem was that I had no idea where to start. However, since starting my apprenticeship at Tempt, I’ve really gotten a glimpse into what working within Marketing and PR entails, and I love it! I get to work with a great team that fully supports and encourages me at every step, as well as working in a versatile environment where no day is the same. Being able to learn new skills using such a hands-on approach is very beneficial and allows me to create work that I can be proud of.
