About my job

Can you describe a bit about what your job involves?

In my role I provide support for the sales team by looking after the marketing activity for the region. This is a varied role, which involves maintaining and updating content on the Miller Homes website and property sites (Rightmove, Zoopla, Help To Buy South / Midlands etc), issuing email communication to our database, co-coordinating production of development brochures, liaising with agencies, analysis of marketing campaigns and occasional development photography

How did you get into your chosen career? What experience and qualifications do you have?

I worked in arts marketing for six years at a charitable arts organisation. I also attended training courses in both marketing and graphic design. After then going down the graphic design route and working at a design agency for a while, I decided I missed the marketing aspect so joined Miller Homes in October 2014. As it was a new role in the company, it was a good opportunity to develop it and make it my own.

What do you enjoy most about working for Miller Homes and what are the best bits about your job?

Miller Homes is incredibly supportive of its employees and offers great opportunities to progress within the company. It is a very rewarding place to work and all my colleagues are very supportive of each other. I like the fact that I have been allowed to make my role my own and have been encouraged to come up with new ideas for marketing. It’s also lovely to be able to get out on site to take photos or travel to the Derby office to meet with colleagues there. I love the variety and the chance to work with a mix of people across different departments.

What would you say to someone looking to enter the industry?

I would recommend it – there are a great variety of roles available and it’s a rewarding career.
