When it comes to brainstorming world-beating new ideas and strategies for growing the company and staying ahead of the competition, these are the go-to guys.
I think what’s different about working at Rental Cars is it’s a new company and consistently growing so it makes you have new challenges every day. It helps you grow and learn more and just makes you better at what you are doing.
My role in the marketing department is to liaise with leading companies in Japan or outside of Japan, in Asia especially, for potential partnerships and new businesses. Also I regularly visit Japan to meet those leading companies to finalise negotiations and contracts.
What makes me get out of bed in the morning is the thrill of being able to test things within rentalcars.com so you can see if an email campaigns gone well and you can see the results very quickly which is great because in other jobs it’s not sometimes possible to do that.
I’m always very proud of seeing the results because you have access to everything so it’s good to see the impact that your actions have right away and we’re doing marketing for the app downloads for example, that’s new, that’s something that I never did it before, so it’s really good to do something new and creative.
The environment in the marketing team is fantastic because all the support you need is there and we work as a team as well as the individual player so if you would like to achieve there the opportunity is there and the support is there.
There are a lot of opportunities inside the company if you always give your best and you work hard they will compensate you for that and the will show they really appreciate your work. Myself for example I was promoted two weeks ago and I’d only been here for 19 months so I think that says a lot.
The skills that I think rental cars look for when rentalcars.com look for in people when they’re recruiting is, certainly, people who are willing, who have entrepreneurial skills, constantly striving to better themselves and push the company forward essentially.
