GLIMMA appoints Lizzy Payne as Marketing Assistant.
We are pleased to welcome Lizzy Payne to GLIMMA as Marketing Assistant on a one-year industrial placement from the four-year Business and Marketing Management course at Oxford Brookes University.
This is the second year that GLIMMA has offered a student from Oxford Brookes University a placement and is part of our on-going commitment to providing opportunities for young people. Over the past 18 months, GLIMMA has also offered work experience to another four students from across Europe.
Peter Koomen, Managing Director, GLIMMA, explains,
“We firmly believe that this opportunity provides them with invaluable business experience and insight into the complexities of the brand management world. Also, GLIMMA believes in giving opportunities to young people to develop themselves and besides that we love to have young bright people in our organization because they have a different perspective on things, they are dynamic and full of new ideas. It is beneficial for both the student and business, providing an outside perspective. There is an excellent fit between our business and the course content which means that Lizzy has been able to quickly grasp every aspect of her role and make an immediate impact.”
“I am really happy to have joined the GLIMMA team. I am looking forward to all the new challenges I will face both creatively and strategically; in particular I am enjoying working with an international team on some major blue-chip branding programs.”
