Claire Joins Team VFT

My name is Claire Wilson and I have been lucky enough to land my first job as a Graduate Sales & Marketing Executive with Vouch For That, just a few weeks after graduating from the University of Strathclyde.
I am from East Kilbride and have just completed a 5-year degree in French and Spanish. I absolutely adored my time at university and will miss the amazing friends I made, the inspiring lecturers and the handy student discount (not so much the exam stress and all-day library sessions that are unavoidable!). The highlight of my studies was my year in France as an Erasmus student in the picturesque city of Angers in the Loire Valley. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to live during my year abroad, Angers is a beautiful city filled with history and culture, has great transport links which allowed me to travel all over France and Europe, and is in the heart of the Loire Valley where they make the best rosé wine. Now I am looking forward to the challenge of working in the business world.
As a graduate I have experienced how disheartening the job market is which is such a shock after 5 years of higher education – no one tells you how hard it is going to be. When I saw this role advertised I knew I wanted it. Vouch For That is such an attractive company to work for as it is a successful and growing business that allows 8 luxury hotels in Scotland as well as independent businesses to sell gift vouchers online. I am so thankful to Catharine Anderson, the managing director of Vouch For That, for believing in me and teaching me more and more about business every day. My first week in my new role has passed and every day has been different from working on market research to creating marketing strategies and analysing social media.
This is an incredibly exciting time for Vouch For That, I am now its first employee and we are moving from an open office in Entrepreneurial Spark in Caledonia House to our own office in the Southside of Glasgow. As this business expands and develops lots of new and exciting things will be appearing on the website and social media pages, so keep your eyes peeled and you will see great gift ideas from your local businesses and from 8 luxury hotels in Scotland. There’s a lot more to come from Vouch For That!
