What attracted me to the tree?

The people. Apart from the fact that they pronounce my name wrong (I don’t actually mind, but it’s phonetically [she-lan], not [she-ln]). I knew that I was doing the right thing from the very first moment I met the team. Especially after the third time we met and drank a bottle of Sauvignon together. Everybody’s so welcoming. You’re guaranteed to be your true self 99.9% of the time.

My experience

It all began in 2009 when I was a deli girl at the local Waitrose. I used to gut, skin and fillet fish whilst nursing a hangover - I learnt a lot from that.

I read Journalism at university, which is where my pride and joy was born - Aubergine. It’s a cultural food magazine I produced on my own. I’m sure you’d like to see it but there’s only one copy in the world right now, so you’ll have to ask me if you want to see it.

I’ve worked as a journalist, as well as a PR and digital marketing executive. I’m a social media obsessive, both personally and strategically for clients – so it’ll be great to bring this to the party.

Previous projects include: Rugby World Cup x Mischief Superyacht, LC:M and Pretty Green, children’s safety app Azoomee, and promoting a four-day music event Summer Sessions, which featured All Saints as the headliners!

I’m so excited to give my all, and then some, to the tree, their outlook is exciting and the team's dedication and devotion to making every aspect of the business a success is something I haven’t seen before.

Meet the team

Be interesting and interested. That's what we ask of our staff.

The opportunity to build a team and service clients using your own ideas is exciting, isn’t it?

No one would mind me saying that this is a diverse and unique mix of individuals.

...it’s a young, exciting organisation that’s ready to blossom

My interests lie in more than marketing. It's people and culture that fuel my ideas.

Design, Design, Design!!!

The play's the thing

Cup of tea anyone?

A mind is like a parachute – it doesn't work if it's not open!

You have to be tech sharp in marketing. We're developing our own products which is great.

Filming the moving world can generate masses of emotion for viewers

Why not try and have some fun with work, fancy a beer?

There’s always something new to be learned.

I was immediately encapsulated by the creativity and enthusiasm

I was immediately welcomed onto the team and treated as one of their own.

Their passion for what they do is beyond infectious and is instantly inspiring.

There is such a collaborative nature working here.

A huge part of being an apprentice is learning from everyone around me.

It’s been so fun watching and learning from the best!
