My Week at a Bristol digital marketing agency
At Digirank, we pride ourselves on our knowledge-sharing and passion for collaboration, working with many other agencies, designers and developers.
When Hollie, a sixth form student approached us for work experience, we were really keen to let her into our digital world and share some of our online wisdom. Hollie had a keen interest in business and relished the opportunity to experience an authentic agency environment. Hollie worked with every member of the team and approached her tasks with enthusiasm, determination and a very high attention to detail.
We gave Hollie a balanced insight into the varied areas of digital marketing, explaining how each marketing channel fits into wider client strategies. Despite a packed schedule, Hollie found time to look back on her week of work experience and shared her perspective on life as a digital marketer.
“At the start of the week I was nervous, unsure of where exactly to go and what I was doing, but I was greeted at the door with a nice warm welcome! Even after just a week I feel like part of the team and haven’t been treated any differently to a regular employee.
I was introduced to the world of digital marketing and learnt more about Digirank’s role in the industry. This was pretty overwhelming at first!”
“Once the week was underway, I really enjoyed myself and I was able to get a comprehensive understanding of what digital marketing is like. I learnt which processes need to be carried out in order to achieve a positive result.
I have learned so much in such a short space of time; from finding out about meta data to CRM Systems as well as learning how a company’s Twitter account works. I even took some cool snapshots for the Digirank Instagram page!”

Claire worked closely with Hollie during the week:
“We are so pleased to have had Hollie with us. She was able to give us great insights into how she uses Snapchat and Instagram. It’s been a pleasure to have Hollie in the office and we’ve really appreciated all her hard work.”
Hollie enjoyed getting to know agency life too:
“My favourite part has been getting to know office life and the amount of coffee consumption. I enjoyed watching Tom attempt to outdraw Google on its Autodraw experiment. I loved all the good music and the funny office chair dancing.
I’m really grateful to have gained experience in an area I enjoy and hope to go on to complete an apprenticeship in Business. I think it will help with my career.
I don’t think I’ll find a group of people as energetic and friendly as everyone at Digirank. Thank you to everyone at Digirank for making me feel welcome and part of a team, I’ve really enjoyed myself and got the experience I need!”
