Place of origin: Norfolk
Role at Further: Marketing Manager
Area of specialism: Creative story-telling
Potted career history: I began my career in business management working within financial services, during the recession which was tough to say the least. This gave me exposure to working with a large portfolio of SMEs and gave me a real insight into how different businesses operate, and what is needed in order to be commercially successful.
I then landed a marketing role working for a luxury hotel group in Mayfair, where I was able to showcase my creative side. Here I was able to hone my PR and marketing skills, and was fortunate to work on some really exciting campaign launches. During my 6 years in London, I took on a number of contract (client-side) marketing roles within hospitality, financial services and media. In 2014 I joined a marketing body for commercial TV, on a fixed-term contract, and worked on what turned out to be an award-winning TV campaign. More recently I worked for a globalisation company, marketing translation and localisation services to a wide spectrum of global brands. Which brings me to Further…
