A Drama Graduate has turned a Keele University Graduate Internship into an exciting role within the management team of an international supply chain company after just three months.

Back in April, we took on a Graduate through the Keele University Internships scheme into our Marketing department. Last week, we met up with the schemes organisers to reflect on the experience and announce the successful impact Charlotte has already made with us here at TSB Supply Chain ltd as she continues to work with us as Marketing Manager.

The following story is reported as a case study on the Keele University Internships website;

Drama Graduate Makes It In Marketing

Charlotte Monk-Chipman, 22, found success during a marketing co-ordinator internship with TSB Supply Chain Ltd which was organised through the Keele University Graduate Internships scheme.

Charlotte, from Telford, secured the marketing management role by impressing the company’s director, Graham Best, with her unique takes on advertising, web design and social media campaigns.

“My role is incredibly varied which suits my creative personality,” Charlotte said. “I’m trusted to work to my instincts and often work independently on my ideas. They’ve always said to me that everything is up for grabs.”

Charlotte had no previous experience in marketing, but left a lasting impression on the director during three interviews which she used to demonstrate her ideas, outlook and confidence.

“The focus was more on the future and the direction the company wanted to head in and how I could drive that, rather than reflecting purely on what I had done in the past,” she said.

Charlotte graduated last year from the University of Exeter and now hopes to pursue a long career in Marketing.

“I want to be one of the top women in Marketing,” she said. “But first I want to see how far I can help to develop this company and see where it takes me.”

TSB Supply Chain Ltd, based in Telford, offers solutions to supply chain problems both nationally and internationally.

Director of TSB Supply Chain Ltd, Graham Best said: “We wanted to train someone specifically to support TSB who had fresh ideas and energy. The company is working to get more involved with e-commerce and Charlotte is the right person to help us do that."

“Charlotte drives the whole social media side using Twitter and getting involved in communities. She has also helped us to define what we do and what our strategy should be, and then expressing it online."

“The internship team at Keele is highly professional and approachable. They always deliver what they commit to. I would highly recommend the scheme to any growing, dynamic business.”
