When we entered the first COVID-19 lockdown last March, who would have thought we would still be working from home a year later? But here we are. The difference now is that the UK’s vaccination programme is being successfully rolled out, many of the team have already been vaccinated and we are very much planning for the team to be reunited.
Even though we haven’t been together as a team for way too long, we’ve still had a number of reasons to celebrate each other remotely this year.
We love any reason to celebrate, so, as well as birthdays, we mark everyone’s ‘workiversary’ – the date they started at Aurora.
We have recognised seven workiversaries so far this year:
- Jenny (Senior Account Director), Rosie (Account Director) and Akina (Senior Account Manager) all celebrated their first year
- Stephen (Director) and Katherine (Chief Finance Officer) marked seven years
- Rachel (Editorial Lead) reached nine years
- Lisa (Office Manager) reached the landmark of 10 years
Thank you to all those team members for your continuing hard work. We are extremely lucky to have such a talented and committed team.
There have been two recent extremely well-earned promotions:
Will has been promoted to Senior Account Manager. Will started at Aurora in 2017 as an Account Coordinator. He has been praised for his thoughtful counsel, smart thinking and great client relationships, as well as fantastic coaching for our junior team. He has played a key role in supporting the development of a number of recent new business proposals.
Anna K was promoted to Senior Account Executive. Anna joined Aurora at the end of 2019, fresh from a six-month industry placement at Boehringer Ingelheim in Germany as part of her degree. She has impressed us all with her proactivity, diligence, problem solving and high-quality written work.
We hope we will have the opportunity to celebrate these and other achievements in person before we send our next newsletter.
The team continues to grow, and we have three lovely new starters in the coming weeks.
We are always on the lookout for great new team members, so please do get in touch at Careers@auroracomms.com if you would like to chat about opportunities to join us.
