Ever wanted to know more about the team that works at Six? As part of our agency life series, you’ll get to meet the talented Sixers that make working at Six so unique.
Meet Alex, our Marketing and Content Manager. She’s been with us since July 2017 and her job is to shout about what we do to the wider world!
1. Your favourite part of working at Six?
Six is full of really friendly people which makes it a fun place to be. Everyone works really hard but there is always time for a bit of lighthearted fun.
2. What do you love most about your role?
The variety. Because my main job is to promote Six and everything about us, I get to work alongside everyone across the business. One minute I’ll be writing a blog post about an event we’re planning or a topic which is key to our industry and the next, I’ll be briefing the studio on assets for a case study. And, between that, I’ll probably be snapping pictures of one of our many office dogs, latest work or the latest lunch swap or Instagram and Twitter!
3. What is your career highlight?
Aside from starting at Six…?
During my time as Brand Manager at the airline bmi (RIP) I worked on a project to upgrade part of the long haul fleet, working on new in-flight entertainment and lie-flat business class seats. Not only did I get to go to LA a couple of times, I also helped arrange a couple of big photoshoots. I remember one where we worked through the night in the big Heathrow hangar and as the sun came up, they opened the huge doors and we sat there watching aircraft take off and land. Pretty cool.
4. What advice would you give to your 18-year old self?
Actually, this is a piece of advice that my dad gave me when I was around that age. It was a time when I was upset about being a geek and not having that many ‘in’ friends at school. He told me “If you think you’re cool, you’re not cool. Just be true to yourself and when you’re older you’ll find you fit right in”.
5. What three tracks would you add to the Sonos queue?
Missy Higgins – Oh Canada
Neutral Milk Hotel – King of Carrot Flowers
The Middle – Jimmy Eat World
6. Most used or favourite app?
I’m kind of sad that I don’t have anything more interesting than Instagram but it’s definitely my most used app. I use it for my blog Gingey Bites so my account is full of food and travel pictures! I also just love nosing at what other people have been eating. It’s also a good one for looking at gorgeous travel photos.
