Work history

Currently

Brand & Marketing Manager

Bubblelicious Tea Ltd Yatta Box Ltd

Feb 2014
  • I’m responsible for maintaining brand consistency and quality across all platforms for two e-commerce companies. The role is highly varied owing to the small size of the companies and involves all aspects of business including market research, international buying, logistics and sales. Among other duties I was responsible for social media, monthly e-newsletters, all promotional and campaign activity based on sales forecasts and industry trends and managing all online content across two websites. I implemented an in-house bar in order to drive customer interaction - a first in our industry - and set-up our seasonal tasting events. I organised and set-up our exhibition at the annual Food & Drink Show, managing all aspects of budget, logistics and media. I oversaw the set-up of Yatta Box, a second company specialising in custom designed goods, and project managed the website build and design from concept through to completion.

The Box is a revue bar and late-night venue in Soho, renowned for it’s outlandish themes and controversial nightly shows. Working as part of it’s core production team, I was able to build and design sets, make and source props and work backstage during shows. I also worked closely with the events department in sourcing, planing and dressing the whole venue for it’s frequent themed private events. The shows changed weekly and continually had to be fresh, new and exciting for an audience that paid to be amazed by the extraordinary.
