How would you describe the culture and working environment at Unity?
As soon as I walked into Unity Online I was met by a friendly and warm team who would not hesitate to take the time our of their busy schedules to ensure you have all the information you need to do your job effectively. There is so much experience and talent across a plethora of disciplines here, that no matter what curve ball is thrown our way, we have the solutions.
Who would be your dream client and why?
I would absolutely love to have a make-up brand like Charlotte Tilbury or Sephora as a client. The scope of work that could be done would be so exciting, especially when it comes to social media. The different types of content you can produce, campaigns you can promote, selection of effects and filters – you could even create your own branded filter, and so on is endless – I think the only trouble for me having such a client would be reigning it in!
What are 3 words to describe Unity?
Collaborative, supportive and vastly talented.
Do you have a favourite quote?
“You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.” – Stephen King
I’m a firm believer that anything is possible, you just need to have the confidence in yourself to make it happen. You will fail, its inevitable but it’s how you pick yourself up that counts.
What is the first concert you attended?
Mis – teeq. I was about 12 when they came to the Ipswich Regent. I remember my friend and I left as soon as the curtains fell without realising it was just a costume change – I haven’t made that mistake again.
You’re having a TV marathon this weekend. Which box set would you choose, and which snacks would you provide?
It would have to be Sex and The City with cosmopolitans and an array of chocolate treats.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you?
Either Reese Witherspoon or Anne Hathaway – love them both equally so wouldn’t be able to choose between them. I reckon they would portray my level of sass and sarcasm down to a t.
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?
A phone that never runs out of battery (I’d need to Google a lot of survival techniques), an endless supply of sun cream because I’m not being stranded on a cold island (I’m also an English rose) and a netball that I would name Wilma.
