One to One with the newest member of Market Dojo

Market Dojo is pleased to announce the latest member of Team Dojo. Angie will be joining us as part of our growing marketing team, she glided through the Market Dojo interview process and we are really pleased to welcome her to the team. 

What made you apply to Market Dojo?
Interestingly, a path into the world of procurement and software was something which had never really caught my attention, partly because I was unsure of what sector I was ever going to work in and partly because I didn’t have much knowledge on this world of business. However, what I did have was a keen interest in Marketing. A family member with previous experience in procurement services told me about Market Dojo and after a brief phone call with one of the directors what was apparent was the range of opportunity available. Once meeting the team, I realised everyone had a genuine energy for the company which I value highly as a prospectus employee. 

What are you looking forward to in your new role?
I am most excited about being able to bring new ideas to Market Dojo on how we can better inform potential customers of our product to encourage more sales. 

What is different about Market Dojo?
For me, it’s that the service is based around getting other businesses the best deals. I have always wanted to go into a career where I can provide something beneficial to others and taking a commercialised business route being able to do this seemed quite unlikely.

If you didn’t go into marketing, what other profession would you have considered?
I think I would have remained studying for a couple of years to become a Doctorate in the field of Psychology, where I would have pursued a career within the mental health sector specifically to help those with eating disorders. Why I chose to work within a business instead is because the NHS underfund the mental health services drastically and I feel I would not be able to help to the extent I would like. I also was hungry to jump start my career and get into working life earlier, and knowing that I have a keen interest in what makes people tick and how to utilise this, assured me that Marketing was the perfect profession for me.

What is your favourite book/movie?
Probably Harry Potter, I recently went to London to watch the final book in theatre, ’Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’. It was absolutely amazing, and you really have missed out if you haven’t had to pleasure to see it. The tickets were impossible to get hold of and I waited for hours online to grab just two a year in advance, so I guess I must be a pretty hard core fan.

What is the most embarrassing song you have on your phone?
I honestly have no embarrassing songs on my phone, or maybe I’m too self-assured of my own music taste

What is one thing about yourself that you think others would be surprised to know?
Ummm, probably that I worked in a fish and chip shop. My friends were all shocked because I am quite a girly girl, but I actually really liked the job! Had some very funny work friends and obviously the bonus of free chips, I really couldn’t complain…

Have you ever traveled abroad? What was your favourite country?
Yes. Probably Thailand which I visited this summer with close friends. It was a budget/travel style holiday but the food and beaches were pretty insane. I have never been to America, and would LOVE to go! On one hand I want to go all out and splurge on a luxury break in LA, but on the other hand, I kind of want to travel South America and visit the likes of Bolivia, Chile, and Peru! Although a friend of mine did that a couple of months ago and ended up getting Salmonella poisoning, parasites you name it! But the pictures were absolutely amazing, I was very jealous.

    Bolivia, Uyuni, Salt Flats

    Peru, Amazon Rainforest

    Chile, Patagonia

What are your hobbies and interests?
Hobbies are definitely eating out (I’m the biggest foodie ever!), binging on a good TV drama, and I guess health and fitness. I’d prefer to say health and fitness is more of an interest as I really care about my diet and ensuring an active lifestyle and 8 times out of 10 make it to the gym and eat super good foods but I do struggle because it’s not always what I want, to slug myself to do a workout or stop myself from eating a whole bar of chocolate! 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Okay, not to follow the crowd on this one but for sure owning my own house. I’m super interested in property and interiors always looking for ideas on Pinterest! I have already opened a help to buy ISA so that is for sure in the pipeline for 5 years time. Career wise, I hope to progress fairly quickly, I am a super hard worker and am keen to learn and absorb from the best. I hope to stay in the field of Marketing for several years, working my way up within this field and then maybe digress into product development. But this is just a thought, I’m sure after more work experience and getting a better grasp on business throughout my time here I will be able to better predict my path.

If you could be any animal in the world, what would it be?
Probably a snow leopard - they are super beautiful and are definitely my favourite animal.


What actor would you cast to play yourself in a movie?
There are some pretty amazing actresses and actors to chose from. But probably Angelina Jolie cause seriously who the hell wouldn’t want to be her!

    One more times will go until a clear winner is determined. If you run out of tire, or have a mechanical failure, you forfeit your place.
