This week, meet our Marcomms Assistant, Tabby Ives
I love working in a creative agency because… no two days are the same and I get to work on a variety of different clients each day. I love the many opportunities I get to write and to be creative in different ways, from writing social posts for retail clients to leisure and destination blogs.
I find most of my inspiration from… my colleagues, as cringey as that sounds! Participating in brainstorms and seeing my colleagues bounce great ideas off each other has improved my confidence in contributing my own ideas.
My most memorable work moment has to be… seeing my competitor research used to direct a client workshop. As a junior member of the team, this really made me feel like my work was useful and worthwhile!
The biggest thing I’ve learnt so far is… the importance of keeping up-to-date with industry news and having an oversight of current brilliant campaigns. Not only does this help to inform my own ideas, it’s genuinely really interesting!
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is… nothing is a ‘bad’ idea. If anything, airing an idea that you’re not really sure about is useful because it sparks conversation and can be developed by others in the team.
If I wasn’t a Big Cat I’d be… involved in nature or marine conservation somewhere abroad; being able to swim in the Caribbean Sea wouldn’t go amiss.
After work you’ll find me… in the gym or, unfortunately more likely, socialising with friends, whether that’s out and about or just on the sofa.
