Meet Zulah Williams-Whiteman, Creative Marketing Executive myairops.
You’ve been working here for a while now, what brought you to myairops?
I knew I wanted to work in marketing because both of my degrees included marketing and branding components, and I had previously worked as a marketing assistant for a small business during my gap year. When I saw the opening for a creative marketing position, I thought that it would be a great opportunity to develop my marketing abilities and continue being creative. Although I have never worked in the aviation sector, it seemed like a fun industry, and the opportunity to travel for work-related events was a bonus since I enjoy exploring new places.
Can you explain what your role as a creative marketing executive looks like on a day-to-day basis?
I spend a lot of time making graphics for social media posts or campaign adverts that promote myairops. Currently, I’m working on a project where I’ll be collaborating with an agency to build a new website for the myairops brand. I also do a lot of ad hoc designing for colleagues such as report templates, emails and other collateral, so I’m constantly working on different designs.
How did you become interested in software and technology?
I’ve always been fascinated by technology because I grew up in the digital age and there is always something new to learn and innovations are constantly being created and developed.
What do you most enjoy about working at myairops?
Everyone I’ve met so far has been very helpful and supportive, and it’s clear that they all have a passion for their profession as well as the aviation industry as a whole. I also appreciate how, despite only working for myairops for about five months, I have already been given significant duties which reinforces that I am viewed as a valuable member of the team.
What’s the most unusual job you’ve had?
The most unusual job I have done is probably being an extra in a music video – I didn’t actually get paid for it but we got some free merch and the band manager bought me and my friends a pint of Guinness at the end of the shoot so I can’t complain.
