A day in the life of the role

It’s a sunny Wednesday in Wimbledon and you’ve now been working for Life Moments for 3 months. As you walk to the office, you’re excited to share your new report with the team.

This morning, you’re presenting your latest findings on the pension gender gap. After nearly 4 weeks of research – covering the existing tools, services and products available to help women – you’re confident that your work will make an impact on Life Moments’ projects.

In the afternoon, you’ve got a collaborative session with Ben, our CEO, to help him produce a presentation for a big pension provider. The client is looking to address a gap between their vision and the services they are currently offering their customers. Thanks to your market research, you’ve got just the right insights and examples to put into the final proposal to help Ben win over this client.

At the end of day, you attend a session with the whole team about Vulnerability. Everyone shares their ideas on how Life Moments can better support customers and have a positive impact on both our client’s reputation and their customers. You really enjoy contributing to the debate.
