Tell us about your career?
I have been working in digital marketing for about six years now and I’ve a background in web design and sales so I feel the amalgamation of these skill sets work well together. I currently work for Kollect, a waste management company based in Waterford. The business has really flourished since I joined in 2017. Kollect’s philosophy from day one has always been good customer service and this has allowed us to stand out from the crowd with our strong social proofing and online presence. Sometimes, when you work for a company that you know is doing good work, you want to shout it from the rooftops – but it’s even better when your customers do that for you! Kollect started with a mere handful of staff in one office to now having four departments which is expanding every day. My role as head of digital marketing means I wear many hats, I predominantly develop, implement and manage digital marketing campaigns but also oversee team efforts in relation to all the fun stuff… website development, SEO and social media.
What are the benefits of living in Ireland South East?
I bought a house here last year and if I was still living in Dublin I would probably be finding it hard to buy a house due to the overly competitive and expensive property market. You get way better value in the South East. It’s a no-brainer for me.
