How would you describe your job?
Heading up the digital side of things at SB is a mix of making sure that the design team work within the constraints of digital, helping out with the development process, and managing our existing digital clients. The most exciting part of the role involves looking ahead and researching ways in which new technology can enhance our processes and innovate our core digital offer.
What does a typical working day look like?
Living over the water on The Wirral, my commute takes roughly 30 minutes on the train. A typical day at SB starts by making sure there’s a pot of coffee on. From there a quick check of the emails and it’s back to work on whatever project we have in the schedule.
We tend to work on projects in blocks until their completion for a really quick turnaround. We don’t often have routine meetings other than to catch up for schedule meeting once a week, where we all get together and discuss project progress and upcoming jobs. On Thursdays we all sit down for a team lunch, where everyone brings something, generally healthy, to the table and we share.
An ideal day is an uninterrupted one, although I’m yet to experience one of those!
What do you like about working in Liverpool?
Liverpool is an amazing city that feels really vibrant at the minute. In the past few years and ever since gaining Capital of Culture status, the city has transformed. The independent food, music and creative industries have really flourished and we’re now spoilt for choice when planning a day/night out.
