Scott Roden

Social Media Executive

Role

I joined the company back in May 2015 and since then, have been promoted to Social Media Executive. Before joining the company, I was aware of some of CheckdMedia’s brands which is what interested me in applying for a role.

As one of CheckdMedia’s Social Media Executives, I am responsible for the daily running of some of the company’s biggest brands’ social channels including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Who inspires you in business?

To be completely honest i don't look up to anyone in business but someone that I do admire is my own Grandad, he started off as the coffee boy when he was younger and ended up taking over the company working hard throughout the years he was there. He made his company a complete success in the last few years he's sold it and is now happy in his retirement. I could only wish of doing what he has done over the years.

What has been your biggest achievement in your career?

It would be being able to progress my career within the company without having been to University or college etc where as some of the lads have. I've enjoyed winning little achievements such as 'Content of the Month' and 'Employee of the month' which was picked by my peers.

What do you do in your spare time?

I have a daughter which takes up most of mine and my fiancé's time, just the little things taking her to the park, zoo or walks down the canal feeding the ducks with her. I also have a season ticket at Man City so I enjoy going there and watching them every other weekend.
