In February we were joined by Carmen, our new Online Marketeer for Springest UK. Carmen was born in Madrid, Spain, but grew up in England with a two year stint in Germany. After finishing her BA in Management Studies at Nottingham University, where she also was a keen hockey player, she moved to The Netherlands. In Amsterdam, she continued her education at the Universiteit van Amsterdam with an MSc in Business Studies – Marketing.
Carmen is looking forward to working at Springest because of the startup environment and because it is in the e-commerce sector. Although, Springest is the market leader in The Netherlands, there is still much room to improve in the UK. The UK market is a big challenge and opportunity, which she is excited about: “There are many growth areas in the UK and personally for me this job is a great learning opportunity. A key growth opportunity for Springest in the UK is the recent increase in price of higher education, meaning that people are now spending more time searching for their ideal course and the best deal.”
The Springest team is very happy about having Carmen on board!
