For International Women's Day, we're posting a series of blogs featuring some of the women in IT at Mirus. Today we're featuring Ronni Murray, Marketing Assistant Apprentice.
Ronni's part of the Mirus Marketing Team, based from the main Milton Keynes head office.
Ronni has been at Mirus for just over a year and is our first ever Marketing Apprentice!
We caught up with Ronni for our 'Women in IT 2020' series of blogs.
What’s your role at Mirus, and previous experience in the IT industry?
I’m a Marketing Assistant Apprentice completing my Digital Marketing course. Before this I was doing my A Levels.
What made you choose/inspired you to take up a career in IT/with Mirus IT?
Well, I was looking for marketing apprenticeships, but at the time there were not many, and it was very competitive to get one, then the one came up here. I like technology so thought it was a good idea to learn not only about marketing but also to learn more about technology too.
What do you love most about working in IT/ at Mirus IT?
Everyone is fun to work with and really helpful.
Do you think more women should consider tech roles, and why?
Yes, but then anyone should be able do whatever job they want. You'll always learn something and it's cool to learn interesting stuff from the more technical people.
What struggles, or opinions if any, have you encountered along the way?
None I don’t think.
Do you feel like your gender has affected your treatment or experience in the industry?
Who's your idol?
I guess my mum or my whole family really.
What do you like to do outside of work, any hobbies?
I enjoy photography, make up, shopping, seeing my friends and holidays, typical girly things haha!
Thanks for your time Ronni, it's great to have you on the #MTeam!
Keep an eye on our main International Women's Day blog over the week as we recognise the women of Mirus and champion the rise of women in this vibrant industry!
