Laura joined in April 2018 as our first ever Marketing hire. We wanted someone who shared our passion and could promote our brand even further.
I’ve previously worked within Marketing teams for quite corporate organisations – doing everything from copywriting and PR to managing events and social media. I found myself wanting a change in environment with more creative control. Distinct were already on my radar via their Marketing recruiter, Jack, and Company LinkedIn page – which I loved. When I heard they were looking for their first marketing hire as a standalone role, I thought it sounded like a really unique opportunity. After meeting with Az and Calds and hearing first-hand about Distinct’s journey and the job itself, I was beyond convinced that it would be the perfect fit.
The confidence and trust that Calds and Az have had in me during my first six months at Distinct has been amazing. I was somewhat thrown in at the deep end by being tasked with the creation of our new website, a project that has been challenging but so rewarding and an opportunity that most marketeers would dream to have.
I feel very fortunate that:
1. We share our office with our Digital Marketing Agency, Impression, so when it comes to SEO/PPC and PR placements, there’s always someone nearby to liaise with. And –
2. I’m surrounded by passionate people with GREAT ideas. From #TakeoverTuesday on Instagram to our up-and-coming Distinct Loves Blog, I love being able to bring my colleagues ideas to life.
Distinct have ambitious plans for the future, of which Marketing will play a key role, and it’s really exciting to be a part of something so special.
