Life at Rawnet

Give us a snapshot of your career so far...

My career so far has been pretty varied - I have worked on Events, PR, Design and Digital campaigns for a wide variety of clients. I started quite a few years ago now, doing marketing and admin in the spa industry, I then moved agency-side and haven’t looked back!

At the beginning I concentrated on integrated campaigns and soon discovered that digital was my favourite area so have focused on that over the last couple of years and will continue to do so going forward. I’m pleased that I started with traditional marketing campaigns because now I can apply that knowledge to the digital offerings I recommend and advise on a well rounded approach to marketing for all my clients.

What do you do at Rawnet?

I am an Account Manager which involves looking after my clients and making sure any current work and live sites are working well for them and their businesses. I also proactively make recommendations based on meeting business objectives amongst other factors to ensure everyone I look after’s digital presence is smashing!!

What do you love about your job?

The fact that every day is different, I get to meet new people and get insight into other industries and I’m always learning. Digital is a constantly evolving industry and therefore things never get boring.

Who and what influences and inspires you?

Are we still talking work? If yes the people I work with as in the team and the clients. If not, hmmmm… my friends and David Attenborough (LOVE him)

What are your 3 favourite websites of the moment and why?

Wayfaring.me because it’s all about travel and is a bit of an alternative take on the usual advice churned out, I also have a vested interest, it’s one of my best friend’s sites and I have written articles for it!

Life of Pi Website - Although I’ve not actually seen it and I hated the book, the parallax is amaze-balls.
