After joining EEX in 2015, I can honestly say that working as part of the Communications and Marketing team has been exciting and rewarding in equal measure. As a department, our responsibilities include External Communication, Internal Communication, Digital Communication, Social Media, Press Liaison, Content Management, Website Management, Event Management, Corporate Marketing, Product Marketing and Branding. While we all have our own areas of expertise, as a team we tend to collaborate together on most projects which keeps us busy, interested and motivated – one thing is for sure, there is no such thing as a typical working day! If I had to sum up what we do, in a nutshell, we are responsible for how people perceive our company, not only externally around the world, but also internally within the family. Personally speaking, I am enormously proud of the role that the Communications and Marketing Team has played as EEX continues to move from a European Power Exchange to a Global Commodity Exchange. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that this project has been a real labor of love and to see people’s perceptions change has been an incredibly gratifying experience. As an employer, I can’t recommend EEX highly enough – at its heart lies a “family” ethos which makes you feel part of the team from day one. For me, what sets EEX apart from other exchanges is our shared vision - we believe in the company, we believe in achieving and more than anything else, we believe in each other.
