Want to know a bit more about the people working behind-the-scenes on your favourite shopping site (ahem, hardtofind)? Our new ‘Meet the HTF team’ posts are gonna introduce you to the clever clogs bringing you awesome buys around the clock. Stand by…
What did you want to be when you grew up? A forensic scientist… until I realised I didn’t like science!
And now you’re a Digital Performance Manager. What does a Digital Performance Manager do? I manage all paid digital activity from strategy to implementation and collab-ing with Eri, Erin and the team on all things marketing. Yes that means I get to work on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Google all day!
Best part of your job? Definitely the on-going learning experiences. The industry is changing so quickly that no one will ever know everything and there are no experts. Here at hardtofind I’m also lucky to be able to learn so much about the creative process from our killer team.
Er, not-the-best part of your job? Getting sprayed with puddle water when walking to and from work… It’s happened to me more than once! The cars are definitely aiming for them.
What’s your career motto? Don’t ignore unexpected opportunities. You never know where these opportunities may lead you.
What advice can you offer someone who wants a job like yours? You must love learning. The digital marketing world is changing so quickly that you either have to learn and adapt or you will get left behind.
Time for a quickie…
What’s a nickname someone has given you? Gidge (one of the hundreds of nicknames my brother has come up with!)
Emoji that best describes you?
In a movie about your life, who plays you? Priyanka Chopra – so much sass!
Ultimate shopping weakness? Dresses are my go to… flowy dresses make me happy.
One thing you’ve done that you wish you didn’t? Dyed my hair black. Morticia, anyone?
What’s your go-to karaoke jam? Areosmith – I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.
Cheese or chocolate? Cheese! Cheese with everything!
