International Women's Day

As it’s International Women’s Day this week, we’re celebrating all the amazing women who are part of the Eden team.

Today we speak to Lucy Canlin, our digital marketing apprentice: 

Name: Lucy Canlin

Position: Digital marketing apprentice

Located at: Alfreton Road, Derby

How long have you worked at Eden Tyres & Servicing?

LC: I have been a part of the ETS team for 4 months now.

Why did you choose to work for ETS?

LC: I chose to work for ETS because my family and I have been taking our cars to the Giltbrook branch for years and we have always received amazing service from the team there. I wanted to start my career in marketing and so when I saw the opportunity to work for a company that I had already known and had a great experience with, I was really keen to apply. I was so happy when I got offered the job and was really excited to join the ETS team.

What do you enjoy the most about your role?

LC: I really enjoy loads of aspects of my role, but the best part would have to be having the opportunity to write about things I had no idea about before and exploring an industry that is completely new to me. I also love being able to visit different branches, meet the different teams and really get involved in different projects- no two days are ever the same and I love that about my job.

What is a career highlight of yours so far?

LC: The highlight of my career at ETS even though I haven’t been here long, would have to be the 12 days of Christmas giveaway campaign that I ran on social media with the support of my manager Joanna. It was so amazing as my first project here to see how well it was received, as well as being able to give away prizes to so many lovely customers during a difficult time. 

Do you think that the Automotive industry is something that more women should get involved in?

LC: Absolutely, 100%. It seems like a really scary industry for women, but it really isn’t- it’s actually really interesting. There are loads of opportunities for females that aren’t just in the workshops and it would be amazing to see even more of us join the automotive industry!!
