Laura joined in April 2019 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 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 James and Aaron and hearing first-hand about Distinct’s journey and the job itself, it seemed like the perfect fit.
In my first year, I project managed our new website, creating new copy and media content along the way. I wanted our digital presence to truly reflect the company's ethos and personality and I believe the website brings all of this together. As part of our strategy, I also work alongside a digital agency which has allowed me to get to grips with SEO and PPC campaigns for the first time.
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.
