I started working in the Marketing department at McCreas in March 2018, supporting Head of Marketing, Elaine Hamilton with various projects and initiatives. I am excited to be involved in the many concepts we’ve got planned!
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 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, from its museums and galleries, to film theatres (I love the GFT); visiting art exhibitions, flaneuring around my favourite spots in the West End where I will soon be moving to; spending time with family and friends, reading, travelling and spending time at home too with my boyfriend and beloved cat Zeki.
