New Kid On The Block…
Posted By Andy Smith
Well not so much anymore! It’s been a couple of months since I nervously strolled through the doors at Peppermint HQ, taking on the role of account executive; however, it already feels like a couple of years! It is safe to say I have slotted right in and found my place within the team – it helps that the main topic of conversation is food and I get to play DJ!
Sorry, I forgot to introduce myself; hi, I’m Lola Mia — we shall keep it at that as the rest is a right mouthful! You will generally find me either with headphones in or eating out somewhere. You will also soon learn that I am a YES girl, which accounts for my very busy social schedule. You need me? Book a date in the diary! After graduating with an events degree, my work in festivals, events and experiential marketing took me to the big smoke and through Europe and finally back to my roots-ish, ready to dive straight into the fast-paced world of PR.
As soon as I saw the job advert I thought of myself and, during my interview, I knew immediately that this was the place I wanted to be. This vibrant bubble of a communication agency was the environment I wanted to thrive in and this bunch of smiley people were those I wanted to be alongside whilst I do it. I made it happen and a week after my interview I was here.
It’s been great to find a role and company that not only challenges and excites me, but where I can combine all of my passions – talking, talking and more talking! I get to work with some great clients that hold importance to me, such as James Cropper (big up to my hometown Kendal!) and Home Bargains – as a fellow blogger you can’t ask for anything better than working with other influencers. I hope someday I’ll be able to bring some more clients to the table – watch out Andy!
Now the festive break (and the client lunches) is over, I’m settled in and the hard work truly begins. There is so much exciting stuff going on and I am thrilled to be a part of it and, hopefully backed by this great team, I can excel myself and make some big waves!
If you fancy bossing me around we are hiring – just head to our careers page.
Peace and love!
