In 2017, as a part of Optimus’ ongoing commitment to investment in people; we launched an apprenticeship programme with the Focus Training Group. We worked with Gemma Nevitt, from Focus Training; who aligned our business needs with the iCQ Level 2 Diploma in Business Administration, and recruited Ellie Inman for the role. We knew Ellie would be a perfect fit for the fast paced environment of Optimus Performance Marketing, and after impressing the senior management team in her interview with us, she joined the business straight away.

Ellie has worked incredibly hard to support our Account Managers on their client’s affiliate programmes over the course of a year. In this time she has been able to complete 15 units of the apprenticeship, including data collating and reporting, the principles of customer relationships, communications in a business environment and document production.

Not only has Ellie completed the apprenticeship in just twelve months, but Optimus is delighted to announce her promotion to Account Executive in March this year. Ellie is now gearing up to handle her own client portfolio from May 2018. Well done Ellie!

Mark Russell, CEO of Optimus Performance Marketing said ‘We are very proud of the progression that Ellie has made since starting at Optimus as an apprentice. She has proved to be a dynamic member of the account management team, and we look forward to seeing her grow further with the business as she takes on her own portfolio of clients.’

The skills that Ellie has learnt through the apprenticeship have been instrumental in her being able to progress through the company. We have since employed our second apprentice with Gemma at Focus Training, and Ryan is already a fantastic addition to our team.’
