Day-to-day role varies, however I worked alongside the commercial team to ensure our promotional and non-promotional materials were up-to-date and compliant alongside the MA code

Entry level, Sydney
Fairly satisfied - I was given a lot of responsibility and challenges on the daily. I worked on big, on-going projects that allowed me to feel a sense of fulfilment when I could finish them well and without any further problems. Daily challenges also helped me deal with time management and prioritisations which was always a weakness of mine.
