During my time at Wattie’s, I’ve constantly been learning and developing my knowledge and skills in so many different areas. I’ve touched on different roles, from Marketing Assistant to Digital Communications, Shopper Marketing to Brand to finally landing on Digital Project Manager - which grew to be one of my biggest career passions in life.
