Alice

Our team is growing! We are very excited to welcome Alice Fowler to our digital marketing team as an Online Content Editor/Writer.

In our efforts to update and overhaul most of the travel websites in Fubra’s portfolio, we were looking for an enthusiastic writer with a keen interest in travel, holiday budgeting, culture, and, of course, online media and technology.

Alice was a fantastic candidate: she graduated from Oxford Brookes University with BA (Hons) in Japanese Language and Contemporary Society with Politics, and spent a year in Japan as part of her degree. Here’s how she introduces herself:

“I spent four years at University learning Japanese and even spent my third year living and studying at a University in Nagoya, Japan, making amazing friends and memories as well as improving my language skills. A career in the field, however, wasn’t really for me, and I’ve spent the last few years focusing on my editing and proofreading skills whilst in an administrative / secretarial role at a small accountancy firm.”

“Throughout my time in Japan I really enjoyed keeping a blog to document my experience, and I’ve done the same with other aspects of my life as well. Now I am thrilled to be using my love of writing and editing in this exciting role with Fubra!”

Alice will be involved in content strategy and execution for a range of Fubra’s projects, including Airport Parking Shop, the network of Airport Guides (such as Heathrow Airport Guide) and other travel sites.

One of Fubra’s flagship travel brands – Airport Parking Shop – relaunches in April 2014 with a new responsive design.

I can only imagine what it was like to first launch the Airport Parking Shop in 2003; the excitement, the thrill, the anticipation of the unknown. Now over ten years later, giving an established website a new look and feel, it feels just as thrilling… Will we meet the expectations of our loyal customers? Will we attract the new audience? Will our savvy users get what they expect to get from us? And – most importantly – will they save more by booking with us?

Paul Maunders, one of Fubra’s directors, remembers:

“When we launched Airport Parking Shop in 2003, we were one of the first companies to use screen scrapers to build a price comparison site. Over the years the technology we developed has helped millions of people save money on their airport parking. Over the last two or three years we had noticed that an ever increasing number of our visitors are accessing the site from their phone or tablet, so today’s new responsive design optimises the site for use on any screen size.”
