The newest addition to our burgeoning Digital team, Consultant Marilyn Ashcroft provides a passion for delivering great customer service, as well as a flair for fashion and football!
Now specialising in SEO at Energize, here she attempts our notoriously unforgiving Q+A…
• Welcome to Energize, Marilyn – please tell us about yourself.
MA: “I love Liverpool Football Club, rugby league and a good BodyPump session. If I’m not at the gym or watching sport, I can usually be found with a glass of champagne or a cocktail at a bar somewhere with my friends. I’m friendly and sociable, I love being busy and I hate staying indoors! Oh, and I can’t watch TV unless the volume is on an even number.”
• What attracted you to joining Energize?
“So many things! The numerous awards, including Best Company to Work For. The growth and sectors of the business were instantly exciting to me and I loved the strong team culture that was clear to see on the social media platforms. The approach from Kieran particularly stood out from other companies I spoke to. From the initial phone call, it was clear that he understood my background and was genuinely interested in me as a person and helping me with my career goals.”
• If you weren’t working as a recruitment consultant, what job would you be doing?
“A sommelier. Who wouldn’t want to drink wine as their job?”
• What was your first job?
“Sales Associate for Burberry.”
• Favourite holiday destination?
“Cuba! Summed up = white sand, warm blue sea, pink Cadillacs and a constant flow of rum and lobster.”
• Most embarrassing moment?
“Cooking a laptop in the oven! I preheated it and forgot I’d put the laptop in there for safe-keeping. Definitely not a wise choice for storage purposes!”
• What is your biggest weakness?
“Designer handbags…or pizza.”
• Which famous person do you admire and why?
“Steven Gerrard – 17 years with one football club. His commitment to the fans and Liverpool, along with the inspiration that he gives to the other players, makes him a true legend. I’m still heartbroken he’s leaving!”
