Introducing our newest Junior Account Executive, Emily Wilkinson.
Emily joined team ZEAL in October and has been busy from the get-go. Initially joining the Arla account team, Emily spent her first few weeks working on a number of responses, developing influencer hampers and undertaking research projects for Arla Global. Since then she has been busy supporting the creation of responses and retailer sell-ins for ZEAL’s newest client, Warburton’s.
After having graduated from Newcastle University with a degree in English Literature and History, Emily recently completed a postgraduate degree Media and Public Relations – in which she achieved a distinction.
Emily first experienced agency life through an internship in a marketing agency, which she completed alongside her studies in Newcastle. She enjoyed it so much, she ended up doing a further two internships at a PR agency, and finally a specialist recruitment consultancy. During her final internship, Emily became the sole manager of the marketing department, taking full control of the company’s social media strategy and content.
Emily talks about her time at ZEAL so far;
“Working at Zeal is honestly so much fun – the variety of the work is amazing. Everyone is so lovely, welcoming and there is definitely such a rewarding and supportive atmosphere which values and promotes ZEAL’s work hard play hard culture.”
Alice Sixsmith, Account Manager, is excited to have Emily on the team;
“Emily is a great addition to the team – enthusiastic, hardworking and always happy to help! She’s been involved with a range of projects right from her first day and we can’t wait to watch her develop with ZEAL – keep it up!”
Outside of work Emily can be found enjoying brunch with friends, and exploring new bars, restaurants and live music venues in Manchester. She loves travelling and has recently discovered her love for skiing!
