STAND OUT NOMINEES
As well as celebrating this month’s winner, we would love to shine a light on our stand-out nominees from this month. These apprentices have been nominated by their managers for their achievements and hard work within their apprenticeship.
MEGAN BRANAGAN, TRANSACTION NETWORK SERVICES (TNS)
“Megan has been with TNS for about nine months now and in that time she has proven herself a valuable and reliable member of the team. She has taken significant changes to the structure of the marketing team in her stride, with a level of maturity that belies her experience level and with a positive attitude and smile on her face.
Her work is high quality, in just the last month Megan has been instrumental in creating a new social media strategy for the payments business unit, including the creation of best practice guidelines and a content calendar. She continues to take the lead on our email marketing campaigns and handles our regular maintenance updates with complete autonomy.
Megan’s skillset has recently branched out beyond digital marketing and event managed a TNS customer event in London from end-to-end, selecting the venue, taking care of invitations and logistics, and ultimately managing the event on the evening, completely solo. The next week she managed our participation in Paris Retail Week, having taken care of all the pre-event needs, she was then on-site in Paris for her first overseas work trip to manage the stand set-up and ensure that the team had everything they needed.”
