Marketing Manager

Marketing

I joined Ellacotts in September 2016 as the firm’s Marketing Manager. I manage all of our external communications and activities, help the different departments to engage with current and potential clients and promote the Ellacotts brand and services. This involves creating our overall marketing strategy, project managing the build of this website, planning our online advertising and SEO campaigns, applying for industry awards, implementing PR and content strategies, overseeing our events programme and production of firm brochures and newsletters and developing our CRM system. I also help manage our sponsorship of the Cherwell Business Awards and, as part of the organising committee, help to coordinate the awards and gala dinner.

I love the variety and fast paced environment that comes with working for a large Accountancy firm. No two days are ever the same and I’m very lucky to get to work with everyone across the firm meaning I am constantly learning something new and the days fly by!

I have worked in marketing ever since I left university and spent six years at an international development charity where I was responsible for the digital and direct marketing programme. I then moved to a regional firm of solicitors where I managed a number of high profile digital and CRM projects.

Away from the office I love to travel and can usually be found planning my next adventure. I spent a winter working at a ski resort in Banff, Canada and more recently have enjoyed travelling around America, Australia and Thailand. When I am not on holiday, I attempt to do DIY on my house and improve my questionable culinary skills. I also enjoy running, having ran my first (and probably last!) two marathons in 2016, and I volunteer at the local animal charity from where I got my two cats.
