This week, our Q&A is with Rebecca Smith who joined Unity as a Project Manager in June. Rebecca has worked in marketing for seven years. “After a few years working within social media and events, I moved on to being the Marketing Manager within a PLC and was then promoted to their parent company to Head of Marketing for all the companies. I always wanted to join an agency so I was lucky to have the opportunity to move to Unity this year”
Tell us about your average day at Unity
I am essentially the organiser and the main point of contact for our website clients. Every day is different, but generally, I spend the morning going through client emails, checking the Development team’s schedule, booking in work for the team, contacting clients about the development tasks, and the active projects for any updates. We usually have a few client meetings per day as well. Every day is a busy day for us!
You’re organising the Unity Christmas party – where do you send us?
After the Unity Online Sports Day, I think it has to be some activity, maybe an obstacle course? Everyone gets fully involved, so that would be great to see! (Followed by a bar, of course).
If you could get a new skill in 10 minutes, what would it be?
I have always wanted to speak Spanish, so that would be amazing if I could learn that in 10 minutes.
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
Mariposa in California, it has a diner called ‘The Happy Diner’ dubbed ‘The Happiest Place on Earth’ and it really is.
What is the one thing, you can’t live without?
Coffee, luckily the coffee in the Unity Online office is really good.
What’s your weirdest habit?
I have to use matching cutlery or it will bother me the whole meal. I don’t think it’s that weird but people do tell me its not that normal…
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring?
Coffee, snacks and my friend Alice, she will figure out how to get home, I am sure of it.
What are your three most overused words/phrases?
‘if I am being honest’, ‘I am hungry’ and ‘it will be fine’
What celebrity do people think you look like?
I have been told for years that I look like Ellie Goulding
