This month’s ‘In the chair’ comes from Lottie. Having spent her early twenties working in Bath and London, she made the move to Bristol and joined the team here at saintnicks bang on a year ago.

A keen foodie and Instagram addict, she brings a wealth of brand and marketing experience to some of our key food and beverage clients.

1. How and when did you decide to work in marketing?

If I’m honest, I sort of fell into it after I graduated. I knew I needed to work in a creative industry – somewhere with lots of ideas and energy. I was lucky enough to find a short-term temporary role at a brand agency in Bath, which turned into a much longer-term opportunity. It set me up with a great foundation in branding and marketing.

2. Name the brand you’d most like to work with.

It’s hard to name a brand, but I’m definitely most passionate when I’m helping small brands realise their place in the world. Seeing something new come together from scratch is really rewarding.

3. What’s playing on your Spotify right now?

This morning it was Tom Odell, but I’ve just recently discovered Keaton Henson. Some of his lyrics are beyond beautiful.

4. If you had a superpower, what would it be?

To see into the future. I rarely dwell on the past but my head’s in a constant spin about what’s to come. I put it down to impatience.

5. Who – or what – is guaranteed to make you smile?

Mischief. And my closest friends.

6. What’s the highlight of your working day?

Lunch. Am I allowed to say that?

7. Proudest moment of your career so far?

Each and every photoshoot. They demand a lot of faith (and organisation!) but at the end of the day, you feel such a great sense of relief when you know you’ve nailed it.

8. If you could give one piece of career advice to your younger self, what would it be?

Never stop learning.

9. What’s your everyday luxury?

Aesop Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm. If I could eat it, I would.

10. Describe your perfect Sunday.

Haha, that’s easy – I have them down to a tee. I start with a short run or swim, swiftly followed by brunch. My favourite spot is Bakers & Co on Gloucester Road. Nine times out of ten, I’ll get their avocado on sourdough; I’m a creature of habit.

The afternoon is spent stocking up on food with a good couple of hours spent cooking at home. I love the feeling of being prepared for the week ahead. If it’s raining, then I’ll hunker down with the biggest piece of cake I can find.
