Josh lands Marketing role at Just Eat
Josh Duffy graduated in Marketing (Advertising and Branding) and has progressed from a graduate scheme at BT to Just Eat, Rest of UK Lead.
“I chose this course for the branding element in particular as very few unis offered this at that time. My experience was brilliant, my first 2 years were some of the most fun I’ve ever had and I enjoyed living in Cheltenham.
“My current role is Rest of UK Lead at Just Eat, in the partnerships team focussing on acquiring restaurant brands onto the Just Eat platform (Sales/Partnerships). I secured this role after completing 3 years at BT (2 of which was the BT graduate scheme that without my UOG first class degree, I’m convinced I wouldn’t have secured). I was inspired to work in this area as relationship and service marketing were two areas I really enjoyed as well as the Psychology side of Marketing/Sales. I regularly apply what I’ve learned from the course including in collaborations with our marketing team, comms proposals for brands and commercial business casing.
“During the course I did a year placement at Bosch automotive as a Marketing Intern. It was a bit of an all-rounder role in the aftermarket team but I can honestly say without the placement I would not have got onto the Graduate scheme. Coming back to Uni you could really tell the difference in the students who went on placement and those who did not. I cannot recommend enough doing a placement.
“I would recommend Uni of Glos and I would recommend living in Cheltenham as it’s a beautiful place to be!”
