I consider Summit as one big family


Senior Client Manager

Joined 08.11

I joined Summit as part of my university degree placement, starting as a Client Executive working with Habitat and Homebase. After a year working part time while completing my third year at uni, I then returned to a full time position and a promotion to Client Manager, working on fashion brands, and Joules. I have recently been further promoted to Senior Client Manager.

What were you doing before you joined?

Before I joined Summit I was part-way through my BA Marketing degree at Hull university - I actually joined Summit as the first placement student from Hull University

What made you want to apply for the job at Summit?

I'd been looking for placements at big companies in London and after going to countless interviews I decided that I would actually fit in and work better in a smaller, more amiable company. What really stood out to me about Summit was the way that the site advertised the company as a fun and friendly place to work, and they were right! I consider Summit as one big family.

What advice would you give for people who aspire to be where you are?

Be confident about what you do! Also remain positive

What's your favourite thing about working here?

Our weekly staff lunches. It always feels like a special event and gets everyone together

Proudest moment at Summit?

Winning the Trailblazer of the Year award at the 2018 Summit Oscars!

Worst moment at Summit?

Being sick in the staff toilets the day after my first ever Christmas party: work hard, play harder ;)

What reasons would you give other people for joining?

I’d say the main reason is that you’re recognised as an individual rather than just another member of staff and there are lots of benefits of working at Summit including a staff lunch every week and the opportunity to fulfil an ‘experience for life’ every year.
