Work history


Customer Retention Assistant

Abel Cole

Jan 2014
  • As Customer Retention Assistant, at organic food e-tailer, Abel & Cole, I used my natural and confident communication skills to support the projects and campaigns of my close Marketing team, and across the wider Abel & Cole business. My background in customer service allowed me to liaise with all levels of stakeholders from different departments easily and effectively. Monitoring and analysing customer feedback was a key aspect of my role. I used these learnings of our customer base to inform others across the business. Leading small projects, and applying both analysis and creativity in all communications made me a valuable member of the Marketing team. With Social Media and Creative Writing experience, I have worked across many different projects including brand, acquisition and retention campaigns. I have a natural curiosity for researching – particularly with trends and other brands campaigns. I love contributing everything I learn to fuel team brainstorms. This has helped to create exciting and innovative Marketing campaigns.
