What has been the most exciting project of the last twelve months?
As I have an internal role, one of the most exciting projects for me has been working on the PR and marketing side of Build. I worked a lot with Nicky on analysing and understanding how we currently use PR, from digital marketing like blogging and social media to how we approach new potential clients.
What skills are essential to your job?
Being able to work in a team, communicate to clients, colleagues, suppliers and press, IT skills and an understanding of apps and social media are all really important, along with being both creative and having a commercial awareness.
Would you say your work allows for a good life-work balance?
I would say I have a very good life-work balance – I never feel stressed or that my job cuts into my personal life. I will always stay late if there’s something that needs to be done, but it’s such a small business that it’s only fair that everyone pulls their weight. However, I don’t think it’s healthy to be working 10 to 12 hours a day. There’s more to life than working, and although you may like your job, there’s so much more to see and do away from your desk! Luckily, everyone at Build seems to feel the same way.
What tools do you use most for your work?
My Apple iMac 27”, LG G4 smartphone and social media apps. My Moleskine diary and highlighter are also always on hand.
