Laura's Career At IT Works

If you haven’t met me before… it’s probably because most of the time I work behind the scenes in the Marketing & Operations team, sprinkling some IT Works marketing magic. Joining IT Works just over a year ago was the BEST decision I could have made and it’s safe to say – I haven’t looked back since.

Before starting at IT Works, I’d found it difficult to get my foot in the door of the marketing industry. Having graduated from university in 2020, I was faced with the unknown of the pandemic, the shrinking job market, and countless job rejections. Looking back it seemed an impossible task to find both a job I’d be excited by AND a workplace where I could thrive. It certainly wasn’t quite the entrance into the adult working world I had envisioned.

Tired of frequently hitting application brick walls, I re-focused my energy into up-skilling myself. Understanding that I needed to gain industry specific marketing knowledge and experience, I enrolled on a CIM Digital Marketing course. Investing in my learning, I felt better prepared to restart the my job search… that’s when I sent my application off to IT Works.

The moment I walked through the doors, I felt at ease - empowered to not only be myself but to succeed. From day dot, at IT Works you are part of a supportive environment where you’re encouraged to make mistakes learning how to be better from the lessons it teaches you. I know for me, I’ve seen how much my confidence has grown both in a personal and professional capacity. One thing I value the most is how the team (regardless of seniority) listen to the ideas you have and most importantly help you bring them to life – without limits to how big you dream.


At IT Works, you will certainly find…


  • A FANTASTIC work culture

  • Mentors & peers who help support you in your career journey

  • A place where you define your own path with the ability to design your career (which is practically unheard of)

  • A GREAT bunch of people

No one prepares you for the recruitment industry, and believe me when I say, it certainly feels like a turbo charged ride which you definitely need to be firmly strapped in for. BUT it’s what makes it all so exciting. You get a buzz from being in a dynamic environment – an adrenaline rush you end up craving.

If you’re seeking adventure, variety, and most importantly FUN, it’s the perfect place to find yourself as a career starter. Jumping in feet first is the best way to begin!
