In this feature we ask IBEX Innovations Marketing Specialist Alex Robertson about his NETPark Life.
1. How long have you worked at IBEX Innovations and what is a typical day like?
I’ve worked at IBEX for just under a year now and even in that short space of time a lot has changed with my role and my daily responsibilities. As Marketing Specialist, I’m working to spread the word about IBEX through creating content, interacting on social media, and making connections.
I usually start my day by replying to emails and reading the various newsletters I receive on both marketing and medical imaging (usually while drinking the first of many coffees). Since we have a variety of capabilities, I spend a few hours per day creating content revolving around specific capabilities, from news articles to emails to social media posts. The rest of my day is usually spent in meetings, talking to the other members of the team about what they’re working on, and planning for future marketing strategies.
2. What do you like most about your job?
I love the fact that I get to work alongside such an incredible team of scientists, engineers, and business people. IBEX has a really innovative company culture and I think that’s something that everyone on the team thrives on.
I also love the fact that I’ve got creative freedom in my job to try out new directions and approaches. I’ve learned a ton since starting at IBEX.
3. What is the best thing about working at NETPark?
NETPark is a great environment to work in, I believe it mirrors the same culture and feel that I mentioned above. Other companies located in NETPark are working on some really innovative and intriguing products and services. Being surrounded by these like-minded businesses making major technological advances in their field really keeps things fresh and exciting.
4. What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
Outside of work I’m a pretty keen squash player, courts have recently opened back up and I couldn’t be happier! Other than that, I spend a lot of time running, playing guitar, and I also do a bit of freelance digital marketing work in my spare time.
