What kind of projects do you work on at PAG?
I also get involved with some marketing and copywriting which I love; I particularly enjoy writing for the website as I get to flex my creative muscles here!
Do you have a project that you are particularly proud of or enjoyed working on and why?
My absolute proudest project is the PAG newsletter. This was something that Tom Legge had been wanting to do for a while and when I joined the growth team, I was eager to take on the challenge and make it happen!
It’s taken off way more than we every expected it to which is amazing, and I love seeing it continue to grow! The first few issues it was mostly just Tom and I working on it, but now we’ve got contributors from across the business, so you really get to see how much incredible expertise there is at PAG!
I do have to give a shoutout to Vince and Tina who’ve made some stunning graphics for the newsletter; I tried to make a graphic once and it looked a bit like something you would make on Microsoft paint in school!
Why did you start working in consultancy?
I joined PAG through the Kickstart Scheme and worked on that team until the scheme ended. I’ve always known that writing was a strength of mine, so I made an effort to reach out to the growth team before I joined and wrote a few pieces for the website so, when I eventually made the move across it felt like a natural fit for me and I’ve been here ever since!
It’s been a huge learning experience and there are still things I’m working on getting to grips with, but I absolutely love what I do and it’s amazing to work with so many talented individuals who can all bring different strengths to the table!
