My job and what I do
I am Head of Delegate Sales and Recruitment for Xeim awards and events across Marketing Week, Design Week, Creative Review; and Festival of Marketing, the largest global event dedicated to brand marketers.
Why did I join Centaur?
I joined Centaur from the Financial Times in 2006, attracted by the portfolio of household-name titles across the business. My first role was Senior Account Manager on The Engineer portfolio where I progressed to Commercial Director. In 2015, my team won Sales Team of the Year at the Centaur Awards, shortly before I left for maternity leave.
I returned to work looking for a new challenge and moved internally to the Econsultancy Training and Advisory team as Head of Project Management. This was a great role: exciting, challenging, fast-paced and every day was different. I particularly enjoyed working collaboratively with global brands to deliver their training solutions.
In late 2018, I took maternity leave and returned in 2019 where Centaur supported my return to work and flexible working. Looking for my next challenge, I joined Xeim to help grow its Delegate Sales and Recruitment business.
What do I love about my job?
I love my job and the company I work for. My role allows me to work with so many different divisions within the company: from sponsorship, content, events and marketing. I’m exposed to so many amazing talented people whom I can learn and grow from. I love that I work for a company that genuinely cares about the staff and their well being. I have been fully supported as a working mum, with flexible working that allows me to balance work with home.
