We’ve been welcoming a host of new faces to the fold lately. Mia joins our Manchester office as a new Account Executive, working with the team to deliver a seamless marketing service from brief to delivery.
Find out more about Mia and why she decided to join the DS.E team…
Why did you decide to go down the route of completing an apprenticeship in industry?
I’ve always preferred a working environment. I’ve been working since I was young, so knew I liked learning on the job. I found out about The Juice Academy (a sister company of Tangerine PR) who offer apprenticeship opportunities, and landed a social media and business apprenticeship at Vivid. For me, I found more wisdom in a working environment than an educational one.
What first attracted you to marketing?
I’ve always been creative, with an interest in performing arts and musical theatre. I enjoy expressing myself and so I fit in as part of a vibrant, dynamic environment.
Are you attracted to a specific type of marketing?
I suit my role as an account handler. I love working with designers to bring an idea to life. There’s a real sense of achievement working on a project from brief to final execution.
What will a day in the life of your new role be like?
I think it will be hectic, but that’s how I’d prefer to work. I like a bit of organised chaos. My role will involve handling a lot of different clients and projects, so I’ll need to be super organised.
Which brand do you look out for on social media?
Net-a-Porter executes beautiful, consistent photography. I really like their style.
What’s your favourite social media platform and why?
I personally prefer Twitter. It’s not as photo-heavy as Instagram, so it’s a great place to express your thoughts. For me, it seems the most authentic and lighthearted… sometimes.
For B2B clients, I prefer LinkedIn. It does what it says on the tin, and I like that.
Finally, Instagram comes out on top for B2C brands as it has the best features to be able to effectively and visually sell a product or service.
What do you like about DS.Emotion?
DS.Emotion’s work is creative, but there’s a clear strategy and concept behind the ideas. I wanted to be part of the team involved in that initial brainstorm.
What do you think will be your biggest challenge?
I think it will be a challenge adapting to a bigger agency. Working across three offices will require different types of communication. I can’t just pop my head round a desk to ask someone from the London team a question – I’ll need to get used to a new way of working.
What are you most looking forward to about working with DS.Emotion?
I’m looking forward to taking my role to the next level and taking on challenges I haven’t done before.
