My First Week at Delivered Social

Find our what Harriet got up to…

I can’t say they didn’t warn me! In my interview, Emily was completely honest in saying that I would be joining a dynamic workplace where literally no two hours would be the same. Just a turn of phrase I thought, but I didn’t know just how accurate this really was! This is how my first week at Delivered Social went…

After a quick stint in London doing something I despised, Delivered Social was my first real job out of university so I couldn’t have been any more naïve to what was to come!

My first day was, despite my beginners’ nerves, very tame. It consisted of making accounts and being taught the basics of my day-to-day activities.

To be honest, there are other parts of that day that stick out to me more, like…

“Alexa, play Star Trek playlist”

“Alexa, shuffle songs by Shania Twain”

Or, “Play Sledgehammer by Rhianna”

Or the lovely drinks we went for that evening to celebrate my joining of the Delivered Social team. I felt so welcomed and happy in my new position and I have Jon, Emily, Sammy, and Dan to thank for that!

Oh, another thing I may have forgotten to mention from my interview was the bombshell that the Christmas party (hosted for every single Delivered Social client there is) fell on the day after I started.

Well I can’t say they didn’t warn me!

After spending the day getting to know our internal systems and the scary-looking technical equipment, the time soon came to get ready to mingle with a bunch of clients that didn’t even know I existed yet!

My First Week At Delivered Social: The Christmas Party

Emily and Sammy wasted no time transforming the Social Clinic room into a beauty salon. We all rushed to get party-ready and succeeded (if I do say so myself).

We proceeded to have a lovely meal together with lots of lovely additions at Pizza Express (thank you again Jon!) before making our way to the party venue.

Hosted at the lovely Tudor Antiques, the Christmas party was an amazing night. It might have pushed me out of my comfort zone. But, we all thoroughly enjoyed it!

So all in all what did I achieve in my first week?

  • Learning new things about marketing and the industry overall
  • Getting to know my lovely new co-workers
  • Work Christmas party
  • Socialising with clients
  • Familiarising myself with a multitude of Shania Twain songs I never knew existed
  • Dinner and drinks with everyone

So just the essentials really!

I couldn’t be happier with my whirlwind of a welcome and a first week at Delivered Social. It was the perfect mix of welcoming, learning, and chaos – I wouldn’t have had it any other way.  Moving forward I can honestly say I’m nothing but completely excited for all of the learning and growing I have to do at this amazing company and the journey ahead!
