We Fight Any Claim Community Blog Introducing Our New Team Members

Our community page on the Life at We Fight Any Claim website is all about the staff. It’s a place to discuss what is going on, what you might be interested in and to highlight your achievements; and by ‘you’, we also mean ‘us’.

This is why we felt the community section the most fitting place to announce that we have some new members to our marketing team. Some of our staff may have noticed some new (and some familiar) names popping up on our internal posts recently, so to introduce the latest additions to our team, we fired some quick questions to help you all get to know our new additions a little better.

Joanna Green, 22. Junior Graphic Designer.

Describe yourself in three words: Friendly, Creative, Organised

What past experiences prepared you for this role: I had always enjoyed Art and Design throughout school so decided to take this further into university where I completed a 3 year degree in Graphic Design. 

If you were an animal, what would you be and why? I’d be an ant because I am a hard worker.

Why did you apply for the role? I had just graduated with a BA Honours in Graphic Design and couldn’t wait to begin working within the field. I applied for this job as I felt it was a great opportunity to start my career in design and it was close to home so I could easily commute.

What were your thoughts on your first day in your new job? I loved the buzz and friendly atmosphere, which made me feel at ease and instantly comfortable. 

Tell us something about yourself we don’t already know? I hate heights, but I went paragliding on holiday once and loved it!

What part of your job are you most enjoying? Designing! After 3 long years at university, it’s been worth it all to have graduated and got into my first design job!

Jessica Bailey, 24. Marketing and Communications Officer.

Describe yourself in three words: Playful, sarcastic, and opinionated.

What past experiences prepared you for this role: I used to work at the South Wales Argus, so I’ve got plenty of writing experience and I hope to use my journalism contacts to spread positive messages about WFAC.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why? A dolphin. They’re quite reserved and friendly, but they’re no pushover. They kill sharks. Don’t get on the wrong side of a dolphin!

Why did you apply for the role? I’ve had a passion for marketing since university, and love writing blogs in my spare time – so writing on a variety of subjects all day at work is perfect for me.

What were your thoughts on your first day in your new job? My first thought was ‘Yay there’s a Starbucks!’  But on a serious note, it was all quite overwhelming. There are so many big personalities here, and I was a bit concerned about how I would slot into the team. But I soon realised that everyone here is so friendly, and I’m starting to feel like part of the family already.

Tell us something about yourself we don’t already know? I was once an extra on Welsh Soap Opera Pobol Y Cwm.  I basically got paid to sit in a pub, drink wine and pretend to have a chat with my friend. What a job!

What part of your job are you enjoying the most? I love updating the Twitter and Facebook pages with all sorts of fun content for everyone to enjoy. But I’m also looking forward to getting stuck in and adding lots of great content internally on the Tintern Times.  

Charlotte Houghton, 26. Marketing and Communications Officer.

Describe yourself in three words: Boisterous, Zany, Northern.

What past experiences prepared you for this role? I studied international resort tourism management in university and my favourite subject was marketing. I enjoyed it, so I was a bit of a geek with it, and that got me firsts in all my marketing work. Working for We Fight Any Claim as a Sales Advisor has also given me a knowledge of the business which has also helped in my new role.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why? I would be a monkey, because I’m silly, playful and cheeky.

Why did you apply for the role? This was always what I wanted to do with my degree, but then I found out I was pregnant just after I graduated and thought I’d missed my opportunity. When I saw that the job had come up here, I didn’t think I would get it but applied anyways, and here I am!

What were your thoughts on your first day in your new job? Because I had no actual experience working within the field, I was scared that I had just blagged my way into the job. I was really worried that I wouldn’t actually be able to do the job but it’s all come back to me from university and the team are really close knit so I always have help if I need it.

Tell us something about yourself we don’t already know? When I was younger I performed the Riverdance in front of Tony Blair, as part of the entertainment for the Labour Party Conference in Blackpool.

What part of your job are you enjoying the most? I had said to my partner when we first got together that I wanted to write for a living, and now I am.
