We return to our weekly installment of our top Mashers who after representing us in the field are now displaying their talents at Mash Towers.

Each of our featured Mashers are fantastic evidence of where you can get with hard work, professionalism and no little fun…

Having already featured Seb Haire, who heads up the Digital team in our sister company Dylan. May we introduce to you, our very own Natasha Harden.

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

I loved being a Brand Ambassador for Mash. The roles I was offered were always for great brands; and the briefs given by Mash always made you feel passionate about that brand – and therefore the activity. Mash always work on amazing campaigns and you could guarantee to be in an optimistic, hardworking team. Plus everyone in the office were always so friendly, they really made you feel like part of the ‘Mash Family’.

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

From my experience, there is a clear difference between a team of Mashers compared to any other promotional staffing agency I’ve worked for, especially in terms of staff excellence and top organisation. With Mash, you know that everyone is striving towards the objectives of the activity and each person will pull their weight in achieving these. For another agency I worked for, the Event Manager allowed smoking in branded uniform; longer break times for their ‘mates’; and a general lack of care and attention to the activity.

iii) What could Mash do even better?

This is a hard one to answer…I think something that could potentially help both Mashers and Account Handlers is an availability calendar on Moogle. Although you can add an absence, it tends to only be used for holidays, not when working on other jobs etc. It would save Mashers and Account Handlers time calling each other to check if they are free.

iv) “I’m not a politician but if I was………

I would make everyone listen to Glee everyday!

v) “You now know me as a Masher/Dylanite but in another life I’d have been…….”

A princess if I had the choice…but seriously I would love to be a midwife! It’s something I’ve always wanted to be but chose the business route…and very glad I did or else I wouldn’t have ended up working for a great company like Mash!!

vi) “In a nutshell my philosophy is….

‘Dance as if no one were watching; sing as if no one were listening; and live every day as if it were your last’…cheesy but true!
