Meet Our New Head of Online Marketing
We’ve recently brought in Jake Oates, our new Head of Online Marketing and Digital Strategy. As you may have already seen, we’re interviewing some of our staff here at Your Money Claim in order to give you guys a bit more of an insight into the business, how we run things and so that you can see we’re a friendly bunch! So, here goes!
Your Money Claim: Hi Jake, so how long have you been here at Your Money Claim now?
Jake Oates: It’s coming close to two months now.
YMC: For you personally, what is the best part of the job?
JO: To keep it simple, it’s being trusted.
YMC: Excellent, that’s what we like to hear! So, in the short time you’ve been here, what’s your biggest achievement?
JO: Well, it has to be almost doubling the traffic to the site in my first full month here.
YMC: Briefly, what’s your experience in Online Marketing?
JO: I’ve been in Online Marketing for close to 5 years now and started as an apprentice for an agency near me in Preston. I’ve since worked for Thwaites Brewery’s chain of Hotels, Shire Hotels on their marketing team and another agency in Preston.
YMC: Interesting, sounds like you’ve got a lot of experience. So then, what is your favourite day of the week?
JO: Monday is by far my favourite day of the week; starting a fresh week at work and all that good stuff. Yeah!
YMC: If you could spend 24 hours with anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
JO: That’s a tough question. It would either be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Eminem. Probably Eminem, I don’t think I’d be allowed to state my reasons for Rosie and I feel like I’d sit for hours and ask Eminem hundreds of questions and not get bored. He really intrigues me.
YMC: Interesting. If you could do anything once, and only once, what would it be and why?
JO: I’d go cage diving with sharks, or just diving with sharks. That’d be pretty exhilarating and something I think I’d only be able to manage once.
YMC: That sounds like fun, think we’ll pass though. If you received a £50,000 PPI compensation award, what would you do with it?
JO: I’d definitely buy myself a new Ford Fiesta ST, I like a bit of fun. I’d also go on a holiday then put the rest in savings and use it for a house deposit in a few years’ time. Maybe treat my parents too.
YMC: Ah, sounds like you’ve got a good plan for that unexpected windfall! That’s a wrap anyway, Jake. Thanks for your time. Now you can go back to fixing the internet, or whatever it is you do.
