Before coming to work at Simon Holdings, I started out my marketing career in the Unlicensed Medicines industry. As much as I enjoyed it, I was very limited and I couldn't be as creative as I wanted to be due to rules and regulations, however it did give me a great opportunity to understand the different styles of Marketing.
Within my first week at Simon Holdings I was working with our Jenrick Divisions coming up with quirky campaigns and using my creative flair that had been bursting to get out for a while.
I never understood when people said they loved their job. I wondered how that could be possible? I now completely understand what it's like to love your job! No two days are the same and it's great!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and cooking. I spend a lot of time visiting my family in Swanage where I spent my childhood years on holiday. Nothing beats a trip to the beach and a fish and chip dinner!

I used to play a lot of sports, particularly football as I was an all round avid sports fan but now with a young family I spend most of my time with my 1 year old son. When time allows it I try to see family and friends and socialise.

Many people living in London have not ever even considered traveling out of London for work – but here’s why you should and why you might be missing out by not doing so...
Employer Branding – what is it and why should it concern me?
As a business, your employer brand is how a candidate sees you in the marketplace. Recruitment is continuously changing, whether that’s in technology, engineering or a commercial market.
