An Account Manager’s Tale

After completing a summer internship at Propeller while I was at University, I knew I had to come back once I’d graduated because I loved the friends I’d made and was keen to learn more about the world of PR.

Joining in the middle of the pandemic was an interesting challenge to say the least; I wasn’t able to see my new colleagues for the first 6 months! However, the brilliant support of the team made the wait to see everyone in person worthwhile. 

From learning about B2B PR, developing my pitching, improving my writing and my client handling skills, I was fortunate to have lots of support and it wasn’t long before I was progressing through the business.

Embracing new experiences, listening to honest feedback from the team and honing in on the more creative clients grew my confidence and meant within a year and a half I’d progressed from intern to Account Manager – it was great to feel so trusted and valued.

Leaving Propeller for the BBC is testament to the skills I’ve had the chance to develop and the fantastic opportunities I’ve been able to experience. From fun client lunches, interesting industry events and plenty of drinks, working at Propeller has created some truly unforgettable moments that I’ll carry with me into my next role. But more importantly, I’m leaving Propeller feeling lucky that I’ve had a chance to work with a fantastic group of people with whom I know I’ll be staying in touch with in the future.
