Social Media Community Coordinator
My graduate placement with Smurfit Kappa has given me the exciting opportunity to work with experienced professionals in a multinational environment.
Working at Smurfit Kappa
Working at Smurfit Kappa is quite fast paced. Every day you turn a corner on the projects you are working on which is challenging as well as rewarding. A typical day will consist of a healthy balance of working independently and bouncing ideas off different teams of people. As Social Media Coordinator, I form part of the Corporate Communications team. I juggle a variety of large projects relating to our social media strategy. There is also daily monitoring of social media outlets and packaging industry literature.
My first days at Smurfit Kappa involved an in-depth induction, which included plant visits, meeting staff at Smurfit Kappa HQ and learning both about the history of the company and how it is run today. From the beginning any Smurfit Kappa colleagues I have met have been extremely welcoming and engaging.
Enjoying my work at Smurfit Kappa
The best thing about working for Smurfit Kappa is the respect and support you receive from all levels of employees. To be granted such a significant degree of trust and responsibility, as I have, with the backing of those around you, is both refreshing and encouraging.
My future at Smurfit Kappa is open to many possibilities. As a global multinational, Smurfit Kappa presents a range of opportunities to graduates not only to experience new and exciting projects but also to progress within the company. One of most noteworthy things about Smurfit Kappa employees is that many have chosen to be here for a significant length of time. My future at Smurfit Kappa is what I choose to make it.
