Introduce yourself. My Name is Julian McNaughton and I’m a Marketing Intern for Springfree Trampoline. I’m 20 years old with a Diploma in Broadcasting-Journalism. Starting in January I’ll be working towards a degree in Business/Marketing.
How long have you been working at Springfree Trampoline? I’ve been working at Springfree for five years now, since I was 15.
What is your job title and what does your job entail? When I first started at Springfree, I worked in the warehouse as casual labor. Starting in February of 2012, about six months after I graduated, I moved into the Marketing department where I’m currently working as a Marketing intern. My main job as a Marketing intern is to coordinate events and prepare our events team for them. I also assist the marketing coordinator in marketing plans, promotions and development of product collateral.
What has been a highlight of your time working here? The highlight of my time working at Springfree definitely has to be the National Home Show. The home show was my first major event. It was a long ten days but I enjoyed it. I learned a lot that I can apply to the work that I do now.
What do you like most about your job? My favorite thing about being a Marketing intern is that I’m always learning something new. With different events happening every week, it allows for a change in the work pace which makes everything more enjoyable.
What do you like most about the company? What I like most about the company, is its passion. The drive and the passion that the leaders of this company have is indescribable and it rubs off on us all.
What’s a funny/unique fact about yourself? I am a HUGE soccer fan. Every Sunday during the soccer season, no matter what time, I wake up and watch my beloved Lazio play. When Italy won the 2006 World cup I weeped like a baby for days and when Italy lost in the Euro Cup final this summer I again weeped like a baby… Pathetic, I know.
What’s your favourite Springfree Trampoline model to bounce on? Hands down my favourite Springfree model to jump on is the S113.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Springfree Trampolines? The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Springfree is quality. With quality, comes safety, durability and longevity.
What did you think about when you first jumped on a Springfree? My first thought when I first jumped on a Springfree Trampoline, other than knowing instantaneously that it was the safest trampoline in the world, was how can I possibly incorporate a soccer net into the FlexiNet???
