Nottingham professional set to launch marketing career website

A Nottingham marketing professional is set to launch a new website aimed at offering advice, resources and career options for her colleagues in the sector.

Jo Walchester will unveil www.marketingcareerpath.co.uk at a special event at the National Video Game Arcade in Nottingham on 25th November.

The inspiration for Marketing Career Path came from Walchester’s experiences after quitting university at the height of the last recession.

She said: “When I dropped out of university there were very few career opportunities available to me – I felt like I was on the scrapheap at 19. That was until I had my career ‘Eureka’ moment and got an apprenticeship based in the marketing department of a public sector organisation.”

Walchester progressed quickly, and she now has six years’ marketing experience behind her. She added: “I wanted to create a one stop resource that explains all the career avenues in to marketing, also drawing on the career challenges I and many others have faced to provide a clear outlook of the options people have available to them to help them make better informed decisions about how to progress on in their marketing careers.

“I had the idea for Marketing Career Path several years ago but I had to bide my time because I needed more experience to be able to execute it true to my vision and that experience has and still is being gained through employment.”

Walchester, who is the marketing manager for law firm Rothera Dowson, says that she is still learning her trade: “There is still so much I have to learn about business. Managing the marketing for an organisation of this size and nature equips me with a huge amount of experience that I can then pool into my own project, likewise there are many skills I have developed through building the website that I now utilise in my day job so its quite complementary.”

Walchester has plans to monetise Marketing Career Path. She said: “I think there are multiple revenue streams that could open up through advertising and recruitment but they will come further down the line. Right now I want to focus on ensuring the website is unique in that it offers an independent and unbiased look at all the options available to marketers. I have been so busy setting the website up that I can’t wait to get to the bit I love – the marketing.”

“I plan to grow the website organically and then perhaps go for funding to take it to bigger platform in the future.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
