What does your day-to-day look like?
As part of the Content Operations team, my daily tasks can vary. Being responsible for a varied group of retailers, a lot of my time is spent sourcing the best deals, sales and voucher codes online, and then loading them onto our site. This involves various checks to ensure the best experience and guaranteed savings for our users. And being a working mum, I have a real knack for hunting down the best bargains I can find!
Another key part of my role involves working alongside the Social Media Team, using my parenting expertise to source engaging content for our sister site, Parent Bible. This can involve everything from sourcing fun & relatable memes & video content for our social media page, to contributing towards upcoming campaigns. I also keep my eyes out for any great deals on toys and other essentials, which I then post in our Parent Bible money-saving group on Facebook, for our members to see.
What deal-hunting tips do you live by?
I refuse to buy anything online without a code or deal! Even if it’s just signing up for the newsletter for 10% off, it all helps.
Another top tip that I personally live by is to always shop in the sale for big events like Christmas and Birthdays. By marking predicted sale dates in my calendar like Black Friday, signing up for relevant newsletters and keeping an eye on social media, I’ve always got my eyes on upcoming sales. And as soon as they drop, that’s when I stock up on essentials like gifts for my children and family.
Do you get a good work/life balance?
Absolutely! My role is flexible around my children, which means I can be there for them whenever I need to be. Working from home is a massive help and means I can work around school runs.
