“Whilst at Uni I worked for Mash in the field. I started as a BA working on L’Oreal in-store delighting the females of the North with the fragrance of Ralph Lauren. Throughout my time I worked on Armani, BlueSquare, Eat Natural, Cadburys, Lindt Chocolate, Ray Ban with the pinnacle of my Mash career running the Tic Tac campaign across the North East of England. The Orange van and Hawaiian shorts were a big hit!

After completing my degree in Philosophy & Politics in 2007, I worked my last Summer for Mash working on Ray Ban (still have my aviators) before joining Michael Page International on their Graduate scheme. I was quickly promoted over a two and a half year period to Senior consultant specalising in recruiting Digital Talent into the Agency and Entertainment Markets.

I left Michael Page in 09 to join a Digital Consultancy, helping them build out their client base within the Entertainment and Retail markets.

In 2010 I came back to the Mash fold joining Dylan as the Team Leader of Digital. Here my team and I recruit Digital Talent into pure play digital and Integrated agencies in central London”

i) Why did you like working in the field so much for Mash?

The staff and the clients. Bluechip clients, exciting consumer brands combined with brilliiant fun people is just a great working day.

ii) What do you think makes Mash stand out from the rest of the promotional staffing agencies?

Mash has an awsome attitude to staff. You genuinly feel valued and therefore everyone gets stuck in and every event is fun. (Even the early morning starts in the rain).
