What’s your name and what do you do at Liberis and where in the world do you work?
My name is Jess Middleton and I work in the Marketing team with a focus on customer acquisition – which essentially means helping Liberis grow our SME customer base by marketing our product through our roster of partners. I work in London – splitting my time between home and the office.
From the moment you wake up in the morning, what do you look forward to for the day ahead?
No day is the same workwise, but the people are consistently full of energy and are what makes Liberis special. Friendly faces around the office and dynamic, creative meetings are always something I look forward to (and I’m a big fan of the office café and their rotating menu…😊).
Describe a typical day for you in your role.
Every day is different, I’ll either be working with partners (like Worldpay, Klarna, Barclaycard or Clover) to deliver regular marketing campaigns, or strategising how we can optimise them. Or I’ll be working with the rest of the marketing team on a range of projects, e.g. enhancing the Liberis brand or creating new exciting content for partners. So, lots of diversity!!
What advice would you give a colleague whose just joined your team?
Ask all the questions you possibly can early on, there’s no such thing as a stupid question – this is the time you can get away with it. 😉
Are you office based, remote or hybrid? What are the pros and cons, if any?
I’ve just returned from a month working fully remotely in Barcelona! But now that I’m back I spend about 2-3 days in the office and the rest at home. Home is great if I need to get my head down on a piece of work without distraction (or if I have packages arriving..) but being at work is the best for collaborating and feeding off everyone’s energy – which in turn gives me lots of momentum to get stuff done.
