I started working in the Marketing department at McCreas in March 2018, supporting Head of Marketing, Elaine Hamilton with various Marketing & Sponsorship initiatives.
How did you find out about McCreas?
I learned about the company through my partner who is a massive Partick Thistle fan – he knew that McCreas sponsored the team so was very enthusiastic about me applying for the job...!
Life before McCreas
Before starting at McCreas, I spent just over a year at Jacobs Engineering, as Communications Officer for their Buildings & Infrastructure LOB. This was my first work experience back in Scotland, having lived and worked in Geneva Switzerland for five years, after graduating with a Marketing Management degree from Edinburgh Napier University.
My experience in Switzerland included working as an au-pair, a communications executive for scientific publishing company Frontiers, and marketing coordinator for a network of Swiss Universities, Swiss Education Group.
My first impression of McCreas was that it was a company which put its people at the forefront of its success; a company that valued each individual for their respective skills and worked hard to support them. This was shortly confirmed more clearly when I learned of the company’s Investor in People Award.
Out of the office
Out of the office I enjoy exploring Glasgow and everything it has to offer. I love reading and I have strong interests in fields including philosophy, sociology and psychology.
