As Outbound Marketing Assistant I mainly look after sourcing prospect lead data and our social media accounts, along with creating prospect outreach emails via our marketing automation platform. I also lend a hand to the rest of the team.
What were you doing before?
I was a foreign language teacher based in Shenzhen, China - very different, but fun and rewarding! Before that, I was in a more traditional marketing and administration role.
Did you go to uni? If yes, which one and what did you study?
I did and studied Ancient History at the University of Nottingham. Bit niche I know but I love history and wanted to go a bit further back.
How would you describe the marketing team at James and James?
They are focused, creative and inspiring.
What sets the company apart?
Our innovation, the foresight to know that this area of retail would explode, and our continual effort to stay ahead of the curve.
What's your funniest memory since joining the team?
Too many to count, we laugh in most meetings!
What's something most people don't know about you?
I speak two languages - English (obvs) and my native Ndebele! I hail from the plains of Zimbabwe.
If you could open an online store, what would you sell and why?
That’d be telling... I won’t be Zuckerberged.
What would your superpower be and why?
Invisible flight, the last thing you want is to be tailed by air traffic control.
What's your favourite quote?
"This too shall pass’’ - it teaches us to savour the good and not worry about the bad as it will end at some point. There’s something freeing about the impermanence.
