Day to day life at McCrea
I’ve worked at McCrea part-time since I was 17, mainly helping out with different administration duties the first few years while I was also at University. In January 2021 I became the Marketing & Events Coordinator at McCrea, supporting Head of Business Development Elaine Hamilton with various Marketing & Sponsorship initiatives.
Life before McCrea
I studied Business & Marketing at the University of Strathclyde and graduated with a Honours with a 2:1. I started working full-time with McCrea a few months after I graduated, which was right in the middle of the COVID pandemic.
Favourite thing about working for McCrea
I really enjoy the sponsorship side of my job and working with professional sports clubs, such as Glasgow Warriors and Partick Thistle.
Out of the office
I spend most my time outside of the office either in the pub, the gym, watching football and rugby or playing golf – I hadn’t played golf since I was 12 years old however the Coronavirus situation meant that it was one of the only things you could do, with myself and a few of my mates now keen players.
I’ve made a deal with my Dad (over a pint) that we will walk Everest Base Camp. I also won a free VIP trip to Vegas for March 2020 which ended up getting cancelled as it was scheduled for the very start of the first COVID lockdown.
