“Hi! I’m Helen, I studied Economics and Management 2012-2015. Since graduating from Hertford I’ve spent the last few years in Marketing for global drinks giant Diageo, writing the strategies and creating the ads for the likes of Captain Morgan, Talisker Whisky, and soon taking on a role with Guinness. Like so many E&M-ers I came to Hertford certain that career in finance or consulting was for me – but after a few internships I soon realized I needed to do something more creative!!
I’ve loved every minute of it, and really happy to chat through anything about what a career in a consumer goods company or wider marketing/advertising could look like.
Outside of this, I rowed at college and then for 4 years at different clubs in London, from casual to competing at Henley – happy to advise on clubs that might suit them if you’re also not quite ready to let go!“
