It’s been a long time coming, but the lovely Alana finally sat down with us to give us a little glimpse into her life. Find out this experienced Paid Social Exec’s thoughts on travelling, being environmentally conscious, and Elton John!
The Work Stuff 📈
Tell us about your background. What led you to this career/industry?
My first job was a blended marketing/buying role for a small dancewear company. I ended up falling into Fashion Buying and have worked for companies such as Boohoo and NBrown over the past few years. After a year of travelling, I decided I wanted to try something new - I did a Masters in Digital Marketing ‘back in the day’ and realised I wanted to pursue this as a career!
What is something unique that you think you bring to the role?
I think my background in fashion and supply chain will help me navigate the world of ecom & give me a wider understanding of businesses as a whole.
What’s something you want your colleagues to know about you?
I will always be up for a boujee (or non-boujee) lunch.
The Personal Stuff 👨💻
What three words would your friends use to describe you?
Loving, supportive & sociable.
What’s your hobby or passion project outside of work?
Cooking, tennis, and travelling - I have also just bought a pair of roller-skates!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
What causes are you supportive of, and why?
I think we should all have climate change at the front of our minds. I try to eat veggie most of the time and do what I can to reduce my waste! The world is beautiful: we need to look after it!!!
