Placement: Sarah Lee
My placement with Sara Lee saw me as the Marketing Assistant for Brylcreem and Ambi Pur. I managed advertising campaigns, and became the key contact for press, PR and advertising agencies.
The highlight of my placement was visiting the agency working on the “Brylcreem Effortless” TV advert (available on YouTube) as the sole representative from Sara Lee. I was amazed by the responsibility I was given. When the Marketing Director asked me to present to 500 people with only an hour’s notice, I knew I had gained trust and respect.
My placement confirmed my desire to work in Marketing. I saw the transition from student to marketer and realised I can do the job I want. Sara Lee sponsored me during my final year, and I secured a graduate job as the Assistant Brand Manager for Sanex at Sara Lee Household and Body Care UK.
