Inside the London graduate programme: Q&A with Marion Nsilulu

April 1, 2022

Infinite Global’s graduate programme recruits at regular intervals throughout the year and in this series we speak to our most recent intake about their experience of life in PR and at Infinite Global so far.

In this edition we hear from Marion Nsilulu, who joined us in October 2021.

Hi Marion! Can you tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Marion Nsilulu and I am 21 years old. I grew up with a big and loud family in East London, a part of London filled with diversity, and both these aspects have given me quite an outgoing personality and the confidence to socialise with my colleagues from all walks of life. I love to travel, read books and I enjoy the theatre. I graduated from the University of Warwick with a BA in History in 2021.

How did you become interested in PR?

I always found myself engaging in politics and current affairs throughout my academic career, particularly when I studied the subject in sixth form. I would regularly engage with the news both through social media, as well as the more ‘old-school’ means like newspapers. This led me to become interested in the PR side of public affairs, and how businesses would use PR to bolster their reputations and effectively get their messages across.

What was your first week like?

My first week at Infinite Global was challenging but very enriching as I was able to get stuck in with tasks right away. Everyone in the team was incredibly supportive and made my transition into the professional world so much easier.

What sectors are you covering for your clients?

I currently work with clients across the financial and legal services, the property and planning sector, as well as the energy sector.

What are you most excited about doing or learning?

I’m quite excited to experience the crisis management side of PR because I think it will really test my ability to adapt and deliver quickly and effectively under pressure.

Tell us about your average day at Infinite Global?

My days at Infinite Global are never really the same. They typically begin with media monitoring and media outreach, but there are days where I find myself involved in content development such as the drafting of press releases and media alerts, to days where I’m creating social media posts and helping develop awareness campaign ideas for clients.

How would you describe the culture and working environment?

Everyone at the agency is very welcoming and supportive – very useful when you’re quite new and still trying to find your feet. The working environment is fun and positive which makes coming into the office enjoyable and something I really look forward to!
