Employee Spotlight: Alice

Hello hello hello! It’s that time again in Manchester – another day, another new hire, and our lovely content writer Alice is settling in well. She’s got a lot of stories to tell, and is making these long Q4 days a little bit brighter! Let’s get to know her a little better in her Employee Spotlight…

The Work Stuff 📈

Tell us about your background. What led you to Manchester to become a content writer?

At university, I studied English Literature and Drama with the aim of becoming a professional writer.  During the pandemic, I worked in marketing and e-commerce for a German fashion company. I didn’t like working virtually all the time and, as a result, I found DMT which allowed me to continue in the industry but in person.

What is something unique that you think you bring to the role?

I have previous experience working for an international fashion brand which has given me a good understanding of e-commerce and social media for business.

What’s something you want your colleagues to know about you?

I am super competitive, especially when it comes to quizzes!
