Employee Feedback

I completed the junior programme at Oban and rapidly progressed to Senior Paid Media Analyst. Besides the obvious benefits of the office bar, I’m enjoying the shared knowledge, experience and approachability we hold as a team. Oban has allowed me to learn and develop skill sets quicker than I ever expected. I have already worked with some great clients and had leadership opportunities. I’m looking forward to continuing to work and develop with Oban.
