Channel Mechanics delights today in announcing our latest appointment, with Oisín Davis taking up the position of Marketing Associate.
A Galway native, Oisín originally deferred his dream course of Psychology in the University of Limerick, to work full time in retail. While working, he discovered an interest in marketing and completed a level 5 QQI in Business, Marketing and Web Design. Following this, he decided to study Law and Geography in NUI Galway, graduating in 2021. During his undergraduate degree, Oisín also tutored secondary school and college students in Geography.
After completing his undergraduate degree, Oisín received an offer to complete a PHD and continue his research in Rural Population Sustainability. Despite this opportunity, he was still eager to pursue his career in marketing and instead opted for a Master’s in Digital Marketing. This decision proved to be an enormous year of personal and educational growth. Throughout his master’s journey he gained valuable hands-on experience in areas such as inbound marketing, social media marketing and digital analytics.
During his time in education, Oisín worked in the retail sector, holding various positions such as Storeroom Manager and Floor Supervisor. He enjoyed the day-to-day variety of his roles and gained experience in team management, strategy development, and budget maintenance. However, after seven years working in retail he is excited to get a fresh start in the ever expanding and fast-paced tech industry.
Outside of work, Oisín enjoys cooking and has a strong love for sports. He has a particular interest in running, having completed three mini marathons in the last two years. He is currently training alongside his housemates for a full marathon in 2024. Oisín also has a passion for music, being rarely seen without having some semblance of music on in the background at home.
Speaking about the appointment to his new role:
“Having previously worked in a fast-paced retail environment, I am excited to jump into the ever-expanding tech industry. As the tech industry is continuously growing, I am honored to be a part of the innovative and supportive team here at Channel Mechanics. It is a privilege to kick-start my marketing career in a workplace that is so accommodating and enables me to continuously upskill myself. I can’t wait to see the amazing opportunities that face me as I begin my time here at Channel Mechanics.”
