Meet the Team: Digital, Social & New Faces
This week on the blog, we are meeting the team at Sandra Reynolds behind everything digital, social and new faces recruitment! Our digital team work on everything from the SR website, to social media, newswletters and everything in between keeping our models and clients up to date and in the know with everything SR related! With a couple of new faces to the digital & new faces teams, we thought what better way to introduce them than to get to know them on the blog. So if you're wondering what it's like working on digital and social at SR or want to get to know our teams keep reading...
Josh won us over with his creative flair in design and came to work for SR in 2013 having graduated from the University of Derby. As the beating heart of the digital team, Josh keeps us up to date with the current design trends, SEO strategies and makes sure our websites are always updated and visually enticing. For his sins, he is also in charge of everything electronic - especially if it is not working (sorry Josh!) He loves the creative control he has at SR which he says is a perfect mix of creativity and statistics.
He loves travelling the world with his wife Kelly and he can run 100 metres in under 11.5 seconds, which we are sure he feels like doing every time one of us tells him our computer is broken...again! His favourite thing to do outside of work is support his team (Norwich City) at Carrow Road, and says he couldn't live without his family, podcasts, excersize and hot chocolate!
The newest member of the design & digital team... meet Charlotte! Charlotte's role is to make sure that all social media channels, newsletters and SR comms are engaging, on brand and looking lovely, keeping all of our models & clients up to date, she'll also be over here on the blog writing top tips and keeping you up to date with our brilliant new faces so much sure to check back soon! With her own clothing label 'The Lord Label' Charlotte knows the importance of building and maintaining strong branding and engaging marketing strategies so she is the perfect fit for the role.
Charlotte tells us that fashion is her biggest inspiration, her favourite time of year is London Fashion Week when she can admire all the incredible street style looks the event brings to London. There is always lots fashion inspo in the city, an amazing place to be for keeping your creative juices flowing. Keeping on the fashion theme, Charlottes fave film is The Devil Wears Prada which is of course iconic (and we recently learnt Anne Hathaway was 9th choice to play Andrea Sachs - crazy!). And finally like most of us here in the office, Charlotte is most happy when she takes her first sip of coffee in the morning. Come and say hi to Charlotte anytime over on SR socials, she's always up for a chat.
We are so pleased to also welcome Lily to the design & digital team, Lily joins us from Arts University - NUA, where she studied Graphic Design and was awarded a D&AD pencil (congrats Lily!) A girl after our own heart, she couldn't live without tea & biscuits and is happiest with friends or her boyfriend, on holiday, in the sunshine. Lily loves to relax by going for long walks and reading, she is currently working her way through The Midnight Library by Matt Haig and the most recent Game of Thrones book in the series.
In the studio, Lily loves that no two days are the same, and she is constantly learning new skills working along side the design team. It's always a busy day in the design room but visits from the studio dogs makes the days so much fun and full of lots of puppy cuddles!
And moving on to our New Faces Desk, the dream team is Katie and Poppy! Katie has worked at SR for over 13 years in various roles, taking two career breaks to have her two children! Katie originally joined Emma and Maria on the booking desk back in 2007, she started out as a Junior Booker and Studio Manager where she also developed her newly qualified make-up and styling skills. She is now an established make-up artist working on commercial briefs with some of our great models and actors, as well as private bridal clients in her spare time.
Katie rejoined the team is 2020 and now works on our New Faces recruitment desk with new team member Poppy. Processing hundreds of applications every week, our recruitment duo work tirelessly to find fabulous new faces and undiscovered talent as well as established artists and work with them in our in-house studios... With so much experience here at SR, Katie knows exactly what we are looking for and has worked to make sure we represent diverse and relevant talent across all divisions.
In her space time you'll find Katie relaxing with her friends and family, hopefully at the beach! In the winter months she is happiest watching films and eating sweet treats. Katie says her proudest achievement is her two gorgeous daughters and is at her absolute happiest going on adventures and holidays with her family. She tells us that she is bossy, but we like to think of her in a way she does the women she's inspired by - strong and independent, just like her Mum!
A big SR welcome to Poppy! Joining the SR team in 2021 as our new office Apprentice, Poppy is working alongside Katie on the New Faces desk working through the hundreds of applications we recieve each week. In charge of booking all new faces appointments, Poppy's day is filled with sending lots of emails and keeping all recruitment admin up to date, if you're hoping to join the SR team you can expect to hear from Poppy if successful.
Like most of the SR team, Poppy tells us her favourite thing to do is go out for food with friends. Any excuse for us all to go out for a meal or get a yummy delivery for lunch we are on it! Poppy is happiest in the sun, and couldn't live without her go-to essentials... her phone, make-up, her bed and food (of course!). On her lunch break you'll find Poppy shopping in Zara for a new staple item or two for her wardrobe, although it's definitely her shopping addiction which gets her in trouble most.
We hope you enjoyed getting to know our Digital, Design & New Faces teams and learning more about what our recruitment team do!
