Adventures & Marketing Manager - I look after all of the day trips, clubs, residential and international adventures as well as the marketing for Edge Group Scotland and the entities within. From promoting our adventures, organising events, building the websites and managing the social media through to making sure Gareth & Jamie are organised and making requests from the team for photos - yep, I am "that" person!
"Do not regret things things you've done but those you did not do"
Most embarrassing thing about me
I have an obsession with Hippos - my house is full of them
The weirdest thing about me
I'm weird about cutlery (they must match and forks must be square not round), cups (can drink coffee out of any cup/mug but tea must be drunk out of specific cups only), routes of travel (I must walk on the same side of the road as my destination - drives my friends nuts!)....I could go on but you get the gist!
Being brave enough to change career from the corporate world to social care - it was scary but very much worth it, should have made the leap years ago!
If I could write my own job description it would be...
Herder of cats and spinner of plates
Credentials prior to working with Edge
After university I spent 10 years in the world of self storage managing storage centres and their marketing followed by 6-7 years in the world of e-commerce, SEO and digital marketing.
Favourite place in the world
Amsterdam - it's one of the few places that actually looks like it does in the photos!
What do you like about working with Edge
The people - from colleagues to clients, they all rock
What I enjoy doing outside of work
Climbing, walking, a newly found love of paddlesports, having fun and enjoying good food!
Makes me different
I'd like to say my sparkling personality and wit but in reality, it's a different perspective. With a largely business/corporate background, being able to introduce different technologies, systems and processes has helped reduce workload for others. I'm a lover of making life easier so like to utilise technology, if it can be automated, automate it!
