Hi, my name is Georgia Bowen I am in year 10 at Brine Leas High School, Nantwich. This week I joined the marketing team at County Insurance as a part of my work experience.

I wanted to spend my week here because I am interested in marketing and wanted to learn a little bit more about it and was interested to see whether it could be what I choose for a future career.

Brine Leas High School-work experience

At the beginning of the week I was a little apprehensive to meet everyone and unsure if I would enjoy my time here, but from the first day I was welcomed in by everyone, in addition I feel like I have really settled in and I have thoroughly enjoyed my week. Throughout the week, I have been introduced to various skills, for example I have been shown how to use word press to either edit website pages or to write and post a blog; I completed two blogs for two insurance websites.

Countess of Chester Hospital Sponser Duck

On one day, I was presented with a large rubber duck! This was purchased by JSW Insurance (part of The County Group) as a charity donation to the Countess of Chester Hospital, my job was to decorate the duck ready for the Chester duck race in September. I painted him with a shirt and tie along with the JSW Insurance logo on his back. It was great, as I am very creative. Once I had finished, it was taken away to Chester ready for the race, I hope it wins!

Overall, I have had a brilliant, interesting week and I really appreciate everything the marketing team have done for me, like giving me an insight on what their jobs entail. This experience has definitely given me a few things to think about linked to my future.

Thank you!
