Emma Reynolds

Which team do you work in?

Sales and Marketing.

Which area do you specialise in?

I specialise in Marketing roles at all levels, such as Marketing Executives, Brand Leads, Brand Managers and Product Managers.

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?

The main way in which I keep up-to-date with issues is through constantly speaking with my client and candidate network and through industry relevant news and articles. 

What's your favourite film and why?

I'm definitely much more of a boxset type of person. I have a very low attention span for films - I'm currently going through the Vikings series and I love it! 

If you could invent one thing what would it be?

A teleporting device where I could be in any country in the world within as short a time as possible. Love to travel but dislike the actual travelling element! 

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?

My focus on providing a straightforward and honest approach to recruiting
