Yorkshire tea- I don’t drink anything else from my cup!
I’ve worked in the advertising/design industry since leaving college. I’ve been in various project/account management roles across a wide range of clients for a mix of large and small companies, from McCann Erickson with 300+ employees to much smaller companies with less than 10 people. Since having children, I’ve found it more and more difficult to find a work/life balance —three boys and a husband are very demanding! With my youngest about to start school, I decided enough was enough and started to look for something less demanding which would work around school hours and the many extra-curricular activities my children now do. It was the flexibility and the chance to use some of my experience which brought me to Smith Goodfellow.
I’m still very new to SG, but as well as the normal day-to-day admin work I’ll be doing to support the team, there’s the opportunity for me to vary my role and use some of my experience to assist in other areas. For example, I’ve been looking at the branding, organisation of events and advising on ways to improve processes and procedures. I love to be kept busy so if there’s something to organise or a problem to be solved, I’m always ready to help.
I prefer working in a smaller team. Whilst it’s good to get experience working for larger companies and learning their procedures and processes, I prefer the closeness and flexibility of a smaller team.
Flexible, Organised & Friendly
Fun, Harassed & Very Organised!
Organising a holiday or activity, its what I love to do! Whether it be with friends or family, I love to travel and visit new places.
Event or wedding planning. With my love of organisation my friends are constantly telling me I’d be great at it and asking me for advice. Maybe in another life I could end up doing this!
You need a good sense of humour. Never be afraid to ask for help or ask questions. You can’t beat a good to do list. Enjoy your work.
