Settling in @ Trunk

Posted by Chris James

It’s been a whirlwind fortnight, but here’s my first blog post on what it’s like to work at Trunk.

I first worked with Adam, Trunk’s Creative Director, many years ago in a big call centre. Phoning 250 people a day with timed toilet breaks is no fun, and I’m sure Adam is as happy as me that those days are long gone!

We went our separate ways but kept in touch, and a few years later Adam mentioned an Account Manager position at Trunk. I couldn’t turn down the chance to be involved with what’s happening here.

My first day was like Christmas. I walked in to see my new desk filled with presents, including a Macbook Air, Sailor Jerry’s rum and lots of sweets. Needless to say, this was the warmest welcome I’ve ever received at a new job, a sign that I’ve made the right career move.

After meeting the very welcoming team (and checking out the pool tables in the break out area) I went through the usual HR procedures and training, went out for a delicious venison burger and got stuck in.

On my second day we went to a shoot with an existing client in Blackburn. It was a thought-provoking insight into the video process and my first experience of the Trunk team in action.

I spent the next few days arranging meetings with Manchester agencies at our new second home – Pie & Ale in the Northern Quarter. I can’t recommend it enough!

And what about the future? In the next couple of weeks there’ll be more meetings and the chance to get my teeth into some exciting new projects. All will be revealed across the blog, LinkedIn and Instagram. Feel free to connect or follow me.

Watch out, here comes the hard sell! If you work for an agency with clients that require video, games, interactives, apps and websites, we can do great things together, so feel free to drop me a line – [email protected]
