This week, our Q&A is with Jenni Gedney. Jenni joined Unity Online back in November last year as our Social Media and Content Executive, creating our organic social media plans for a variety of clients across multiple platforms; this includes both the copy and imagery. Jenni also manages and implements longer content including blog posts and landing pages for websites.
“I studied Public Relations at University between 2017-2020, and during my time there I was a volunteer PR Consultant for their student-run agency. The summer between my second and third year, I worked as Marketing Assistant at a facilities management company. Once I graduated, I went into an admin role at an optician’s for a year whilst I looked for my dream marketing role. I then joined Unity at the end of 2021”
What initially attracted you to work for Unity?
The array of clients. I wanted to work with businesses from all different industries to ensure my role was always varied and exciting.
What would be your dream client and why?
Probably a record label. I think that promoting new albums and writing about festivals and industry events would be so fun!
What is the best career lesson you’ve learned so far?
To take inspiration from everywhere. When you work in social media and marketing, you’re always consuming content in your free time that could positively influence your own work. Designs on billboards, copy on social, I always make sure to take note of things that have caught my own attention.
People would be surprised if they knew?
That I went to dance classes for about 8 years. You’d never be able to tell from how inelegant I am.
Are you messy or organised?
At work I’d say I’m quite particular and organised, but at home I am the complete opposite and very messy.
What TV show/movie are you ashamed to admit you love?
Downton Abbey – I’m obsessed!
What is on your bucket list?
Travelling. I have only ever been abroad once so there’s many places to tick off the list.
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
I love to read. My genre of choice is fantasy.
What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery?
A house for sure!
