A day in the life of a Strategic Partner Manager
Finlay Craig, Strategic Partner Manager at Liberis shares what a 'day in the life' at Liberis looks like.Return to blog posts
What’s your name and what do you do at Liberis and where in the world do you work?
My name is Finlay Craig, and I work in the Partnerships team at Liberis. Our team focus on driving growth through our partners by finding new opportunities, implementing new features, and trying to service as many businesses as possible. I am based in London and enjoy spending around 80% of my time in the office.
From the moment you wake up in the morning, what do you look forward to for the day ahead?
The great thing about my job is being able to work with myriad teams and people. It keeps the days fresh and exciting, whilst allowing me to learn from a plethora of diverse and talented people. Having said that, coffee comes first 🤣.
Describe a typical day for you in your role.
Working for a scale-up like Liberis means that typical days are few and far between. Objectives can vary from launching in a new country, refining processes, or pushing marketing campaigns out. The only real constant is the need to interact with various teams to achieve the objective of the day.
What advice would you give a colleague whose just joined your team?
Get stuck in. There is lots to learn at Liberis and that can’t be done if you are not willing to get involved. From my experience, everyone is willing to help, and everyone could always do with some help!
Are you office based, remote or hybrid? What are the pros and cons, if any?
I spend 3-4 of my days a week in the office with the other 1-2 at home. This really works for me as I love being in an office environment where I can pester people 😜 without having to put in a meeting. Another huge benefit is being able to (over) hear conversations about what is going on in other parts of the business, which in turn often benefits my work. Having said that, having a couple of days at home in a week never goes a miss; flexibility is key!
