Name: Rachael Louise Harvey
Position: Content Marketer
Location: East London – Clerkenwell Office
How long for: Since January 2014 (a mere couple of months)
Background: I was born and raised in East London, right on the border of Essex - so I'm able to make the most of living 20 minutes away from the center of the City, but can spend my weekends roaming around the forest with my loyal companion Lady, a black labrador/pointer cross. I studied at the University of Birmingham, for a degree in Political Science and Philosophy, which meant a lot of time spent in the library with my head in a book (perhaps not as much time as I should have, mind...). In between finishing university and landing a job at Tellonline, I worked as a sales assistant in a Covent Garden shoe shop – which definitely helped me to develop a thicker skin! Although I had no prior marketing experience, I was able to gain corporate experience in a top London management consultancy whilst I was at uni.
Interests in the industry: Social media fascinates me – the study of human behaviour and cultures is so complex and interesting; observing how people as well as markets engage with each other through social media is a necessity for online success.
Interests outside of work: Photography, making things, visiting new places.
Love: Adventures, the Great British Sewing Bee/ Bake Off, and red velvet cake
Hate: My daily commute on the underground, bananas, bare-feet.
