What Kate says:
It was my first job at Ofcom that introduced me to the wonderful world of PR after a brief stint working in media and marketing. I knew after a couple of days in the office that this was the career for me. One of the things I love about PR is the fact that every day is different and you never know what’s round the corner. I have seen a lot of changes since joining the profession and this has kept me on my toes, always learning new skills.
My work experience is from a diverse range of sectors. Following my time in the public sector at Ofcom I moved into the travel industry working for TUI on their brands Thomson and First Choice. I worked in financial services for accountancy firm EY and am now with Tesco. For me PR has allowed me to transfer my skills to different sectors and I have enjoyed moving around acquiring new insights. My area of specialism is issues, crisis and reputation management.
If I am not working I am juggling being a mother to two boys or out running trying to make sure I can keep up with them!
