I was excited to find out that I’ll be the first graduate to be joining MotoNovo Finance as part of the Welsh Financial Services Graduate Programme. The programme exists to create a talent pool of financial professionals in Wales by providing industry experience, alongside a fully funded MSc in Financial Services Management.  

MotoNovo is my second six-month placement through the programme and has been a fantastic experience so far. I will be spending six weeks in different areas of the business to really get the most out of my time here, starting with the Marketing department.

For my first two days I was welcomed to the business in a company induction. It was a really useful way to learn about the business and meet new starters from other departments. This set me up really well for my first day in marketing.

I sit within the Brand Team who process, design and deliver the creative briefs that come in from around the business. The department is extremely busy but always full of creativity, laughter and snacks! Since joining the team, I have been involved in content writing, event management and processing creative briefs. This has been a great insight into how a company of this size operates in terms of its structure and marketing capabilities.

MotoNovo encourages learning and development and I was pleased to find lots of my colleagues were also studying towards qualifications. My managers have been very supportive of my studies and have made and effort to tailor my job role around my degree.

The work I am doing is interesting and gives me the opportunity to really add value to the business. Based on my experience so far, I would definitely recommend MotoNovo Finance for anyone looking for an employer who really values its staff.

I am really looking forward to the rest of my time at MotoNovo and can’t wait to explore more of the business. Next stop… Strategy!
