Student spotlight: Victoria Ross
Third year BA (Hons) Marketing student Victoria Ross recently completed an internship with Aon in Farnborough, working with their corporate marketing department.
Aon is the largest insurance broker and risk adviser in the world. Victoria’s role included developing the business planning packs for 2014 including gantt charts, organising magazine and newspaper opportunities, market research, writing and organising a sales brochure for the Monaco Boat Show and marketing analytics.
Victoria’s colleagues at Aon were impressed by her performance, and her ability to use her initiative working as part of a team and a pleasure to work with. Victoria said she learnt more about technical marketing, the creative side of the work, the service sector, how marketing works in practice, how to apply her studies at University, how to work in a team and discuss ideas with other members of the team at Aon. She is now planning for her graduate job.
Course leader Lesley Strachan said “ I am very proud of Victoria’s achievements, she has grown so much in confidence this year and she will do really well in her future career”.
