In our latest blog, we would like to welcome our newest member of the Creative Pod team, Emma - who has joined as a Marketing Executive. Due to Tier 4 restrictions, we were unable to sit down with her, so had a chat via Zoom to find out a little more about her journey so far working with us!
Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming! It’s always daunting starting a new role, especially during COVID-19, whilst working from home, but the team have a great support network and I’m excited for what the future holds.
Interesting! I’ve had my interviews and inductions via Zoom which is a little strange but the technology, systems and communication in place is first class, so I feel pretty ‘in the know’ and well supported already.
Having completed my A Level’s, I decided university life wasn’t for me, so I began a career in the serviced office industry. I’ve since spent the last 5 years within marketing at Gatwick Airport and a large Tour Operator in the travel industry. I’ve just finished maternity leave after having my first baby in July 2020 and I’m excited for my next journey, at Creative Pod.
I grew up playing football and spent 6 seasons at Chelsea Women, before moving to Fulham Women for a further 3 seasons. I’m also a lefty which is rather unusual in the women’s game!
I’d have to say my Nan. She passed away just 3 weeks before her 101st Birthday. If I can be even as half as strong, courageous and kind as she was, I’ll be ‘winning in life’.
I’m a huge Chelsea fan, so will have to go with Lamps...
