I graduated in Advertising with Public Relations in 2010. I joined Allegion in 2016 to support the marketing department. My previous roles involved Digital Marketing and enhancing business growth by using digital strategic initiatives.
My position changed at Allegion within 12 months and I was promoted to the role of “Digital Marketing Executive for the UK, MEA & Turkey. This permanent role led me to develop my career at Allegion by using my digital skillset to help promote Allegion at a global scale.
I now develop digital strategies to aid our commercial growth in the regions I serve, also carry out all the tactical elements to serve our customers with the ultimate digital experience. I truly believe the true digital experience must involve several key ingredients, such as testing, development and learning through failures. These key ingredients are key when underpinning any forms of Digital marketing and ensuring the key business needs are met.
This role allows me to learn about other cultures, meet different people and further develop my skills. Allegion has given me the opportunities to travel globally and enhance my international business marketing efforts.
I have been fortunate to be surrounded by great mentors such as my manager who has always pushed me to develop further and get involved with all the other aspects of the business.
Working at Allegion, allows me to develop and enhance my commercial awareness alongside strengthening my digital skill set for B2B growth.
I am now working towards my masters qualification in Digital Marketing which has been sponsored by Allegion.
“I graduated Aston University business school in 2011 in International Business and Management. I joined the business as a summer intern for 4 months supporting the Business Development Director on project work. My position was extended and then I was offered a permanent role as a graduate. I began my career as a Project Coordinator within the automatic door installation team. Throughout my journey at Allegion I have been given the opportunity to work in several, varied roles across the organisation: business development, project coordinating, customer care, sales and account management. This has given me experience and new skills and also exposure to leaders across the business.
I now look after key customers, working with them strategically to grow and maximise their business by offering Allegion’s security solutions to their customers.
I enjoy a challenge and I have been given so many opportunities to move out of my comfort zone and try something new. I have been lucky enough to have been exposed to some great mentors who have enabled me to grow, learn and have supported me to achieve the best out of me.
I appreciate that I am involved from conception to implementation of projects and my voice is heard and valued. The support of great managers has enabled me to be confident to speak up and be empowered.
The team have recognised my strengths and where possible have steered me in a direction that they believe I could excel at and encouraged me when possible into a new role enabling me to acquire and develop my skills to allow me to become a stronger individual in the business world.”
