Alex Taylor

BA Business and Marketing

Marketing Assistant


I joined Ellacotts in March 2018 as a Marketing Assistant. Previously I had been studying at De Montfort University in Leicester for four years where I achieved a 1st Class Degree in Business and Marketing.

After graduation, I went travelling to Australia and New Zealand for four months with my boyfriend. We travelled up the east coast of Australia by bus with our backpacks from Sydney to Cairns. We then hired a campervan and drove along the Great Ocean Road for five days. In New Zealand, we travelled both islands on the Kiwi Experience bus tour. My highlight Scuba Diving in the Great Barrier Reef – where I found Nemo!

My job includes developing and running Ellacotts social media platforms, creating engaging content for social media, organising the social media calendar. I also update the website with content and job adverts, organise and set up events, liaise with suppliers for promotional materials such as brochures and advertisements.

I enjoy working at Ellacotts because I have a wide variety of tasks which means each day is different. Also, I’ve been given a lot of responsibility on certain marketing aspects which allows me to use my creativity.

When I’m not at work I enjoy catching up on my favourite TV shows and socialising with my friends. We love going out to dinner, theme parks and events such as Royal Ascot.
