Welcoming our Partnership Development Manager and Content Coordinator

Published on December 21, 2018 by Alex Eade

The last few months have seen the introduction of five new team members. As the two new relationship managers were introduced to you earlier, it is only right we also introduce you to our new content coordinator Josef James, and partnership development manager Justine Duncan.

Justine Duncan

Justine joined this year’s Digital Marketing Executive Course after completing her master’s degree at the University of Essex before being asked to join the Footprint Digital team as a Partnership Development Manager.

‘I left sunny California for sunny Colchester to attend the University of Essex for my MA in Advertising, Marketing, and the Media. After graduating, I was lucky enough to be accepted onto the Footprint Digital Executive Course which then led to a position working at Footprint Digital as a Partnership Development Manager. As a PDM, I work with other agencies that specialise in what they do so that we can collaborate to meet the business objectives of our clients. At the core of our Partnership network is the value and importance of relationships which I love. My time at Footprint so far has been absolutely amazing, everyone here is so intelligent yet humble, supportive, driven, genuine and most importantly really nice!’  (Justine Duncan, Partnership Development Manager)

Josef James

Josef is the newest member of our team joining just over a month ago, after a career change from teaching English. He has taken over our content writing network and started creating great pieces of work for our clients.

‘Having decided to change the direction of my career path, I quickly discovered digital marketing is a whole new world! I started working freelance, as a copywriter, the summer before I was lucky enough to find employment at Footprint. During my time as a freelancer, I quickly learned the vast amount of opportunity to learn and apply my writing abilities in a whole different light.

In my first week as a content coordinator, I had to adjust to the demand quickly. There is a massive variety of different and exciting niches that our clients offer. Thanks to the team at Footprint my knowledge was upgraded rapidly. I was taught how search engines assessed content, and the incredible impact it has on the search engine ranking of a website. Throughout my first few weeks, my learning has gone beyond the power of content. I’m excited to continue to develop my technical knowledge on what makes the best websites tick.

I’m ready to continue sponging up as much as I can and produce the best possible content for our clients.’  (Josef James, Content Coordinator)

Both Josef and Justine have settled into the team perfectly, joining in with the team at every occasion. The Footprint team have enjoyed welcoming you and we all look forward to working with you more.
