Marketer, digital trainer and all-round internet person

Kathryn Monkcom

Hey, I’m Kathryn. I’m a marketer, digital trainer and all-round internet person. I started blogging on Tumblr back in 2012 and now spend my days working with Digital Native to grow their apprenticeship programmes. I’ve also worked on projects with the Department for Education and a supermarket chain that rhymes with “al fresco”.

My Experience

I first discovered Marketing when I taught myself basic HTML and CSS to change the background of my Tumblr blog aged 14.

Since then I’ve run a series of blogs from typewriter poetry to fashion and found that no matter the topic, I love engaging audiences and building communities.

I’m a passionate advocate for apprenticeships and have worked with Amazing Apprenticeships, the East of England YAAN, the DfE and local schools to give young people the skills and power to take control of their career journey.

Some nice things people have said

I loved working with Kathryn and she was a hugely valuable part of the team at Aira, making a big impact and progressing well, even in a relatively short timeframe. Her knowledge and experience of digital surpasses many people I’ve worked with who have been in the industry far longer and I’d recommend her for any digital role.

Paddy Moogan
Co-Founder, Aira

Kathryn has been a brilliant addition to the Aira team and I’ve really enjoyed working with her. She’s incredibly knowledgeable, always wants to learn, looks for ways to help others, and is just one of those people that just gets it. Definitely “one to watch” and destined to do great things.

Matt Beswick
Co-Founder, Aira

[Kathryn] has such passion about her profession, her role and delivering such a high standard of work, to help the company increase awareness and profit…it is reassuring to work with someone like Kathryn that understands that fundamentals of marketing, how to engage an audience and how to generate new business leads for her company.

Mark Blackmore
Partner Success Manager, QBS group

It’s been fantastic watching Kathryn grow from strength to strength whilst on her apprenticeship…Her professionalism and eagerness to learn is what sets her apart from other apprentices I’ve met and she has been a genuine pleasure to teach!

Natalie Richardson
Social Media & Digital Marketing Trainer, Baltic Apprenticeships

Kathryn…attended an apprenticeship talk I organised during National Apprenticeship Week. Kathryn was very confident and hugely engaging when delivering her talk to the students. She provided invaluable first-hand experience of being an apprentice to the students and certainly inspired many young people to follow that route.

Trisha Seecharran
ASK Regional Project Coordinator, Education and Employers

Kathryn is an absolute star…I’ve been unable to fault a single thing she did throughout the week and the incredible website she produced is proof that she’s a fantastic digital marketer.
