60 second interview with Oliver Walpole, Account Manager at Air Social Marketing Agency
What does Air Social do?Â
Air Social is a full-service marketing agency offering everything from social media marketing, web design and development through to traditional PR and event management. The core of the business centres around social media and web development, working with many companies local to Guildford with anything from brand building and generating leads to creating digital campaigns and building websites with the user journey and social media in mind.Â
How did you come to work at Air Social and what is your current position within the company?
I came back from spending half a year in Australia and was very focused on utilising my skill set to find a job in marketing, and more specifically in social media. Air Social was everything I was looking for, and I was offered great opportunities from the start. I am currently an Account Manager within the company and spend my time focussed on growing client accounts by generating new business across multiple social media platforms.
What are some of the highlights of your career so far?
One of the big highlights of my career to date was hitting my target of becoming an Account Manager within 12 months of joining the company.Â I love what I do as my job enables me to develop strong working relationships with my clients over time. I also enjoy working with the Air Social team as we are all passionate about what we do.Â
How long have you been a member of the club and why did you become a member?Â
Iâ€™ve been a member of The County Club for over a year. I became a member as I knew that The County Club offers fantastic networking opportunities. Additionally, as the club is just down the road from our current offices, itâ€™s a great meeting place, with a bar that has beautiful views of Guildford High Street.
What do you consider to be the benefits of being a member?Â
There are many benefits of being a member. It is a great place to meet like-minded individuals and the meeting rooms provide a great space for hosting meetings or training sessions. Ivanâ€™s cooking is another clear benefit!Â
