Isabella Luba - at Periscopix Digital Marketing Company
Isabella was at school 2004-2011 and head of Reade House 2010-2011. Isabella writes:
We are currently recruiting about 4/5 graduates every month to join our PPC Department. I just genuinely love the company and think for fresh graduates if they read about PPC and find it interesting there’ll love the role.
For the PPC Marketing Account Manager role (see more details here: http://www.periscopix.co.uk/careers/#jobs/38768) we don’t ask for any previous marketing experience or a marketing degree. As a PPC Marketing Account Manager they will be interacting with clients, analyzing data, creating key work campaigns and working with in teams to develop campaign strategies. We have a 3 month training program so as long as they come with a keen interest and knowledge of PPC (which they will have gained from doing research to get through the interview process), they will be fine.
We also have the largest Google Analytics department in the UK. Currently they are looking for Techy Graduates to join them. At the moment we are looking for Technical Web Analysts (see more details here: http://www.periscopix.co.uk/careers/#jobs/38784). For this role we do need graduates who have experience working with Java script, HTML or Google Analytics as although we have a training program for them we don’t have the time to go back to the very basics of coding. They don’t need to have done a computer science degree we just need to see they have experience working with these skills in their spare time.
Finally, we have also just started looking for an Attribution Analyst (http://www.periscopix.co.uk/careers/#jobs/254658) and Digital Data Analyst (http://www.periscopix.co.uk/careers/#jobs/254656). For these roles we are looking for people with between 1 and 3 years’ experience. I thought this may be of interest to those who left RRS some time ago.

Simon Dale - The Cronx Brewery
Former Alcohol Wholesaler, Mark Russell & Former City Worker, Simon Dale (Old Russellian), met shortly before the London riots in 2011 at a beer festival, and found they both were having thoughts about starting up a new brewery in the area. Both born and raised in Croydon, where there has been no commercial brewery since 1954, the riots and subsequent renewal of community spirit convinced them to push ahead with their plans. After nearly a year of test brewing, planning and trying to find financial backing, The Cronx Brewery was formed. They had their commercial brewery equipment delivered on 10th July 2012, brewed for the first time commercially on 18th July 2012, and had their first beers on sale in Croydon pubs on Wednesday 8th August 2012, exactly one year after the riots occurred in Croydon. The first year of trading beat all expectations, and they now brew five permanent beers, as well as a range of special seasonal and one-off brews. http://www.thecronx.com/
