Our new marketing executive, Cara, started on Monday. We caught up with her to chat about her first week and how she’s enjoying being part of the Shearer team.
Hey Cara! It’s been a busy first week for you, how are you getting on so far?
It’s been a great week so far! I’ve really enjoyed meeting the whole team and learning about the company. With such history, it was fascinating to see behind the scenes in the factory and learn about how Shearer have been producing candles since 1897. Who knew there were so many variations!
What’s your background in?
I studied International Fashion Branding at Glasgow Caledonian University and since graduating have been working in marketing and events for the creative industry. It’s important to me that I’m in a creative company with a great product, which is why Shearer Candles is a perfect fit for me.
What’s your favourite scent so far?
There are so many scents to choose from! So far, I’d say my favourites are the Natural Spa Herb for a fresh scent, it reminds me of my favourite cocktail, Mojitos! Or for something sweet, I’d say Tropical Watermelon – its summer in a scent!
What are you most looking forward to in the coming months?
There’s lots going on at the moment with alot of exciting things lined up, so I’m really looking forward to getting my teeth into everything. Especially at this time of year when everything is picking up. In particular, I’m looking forward to attending the Birmingham NEC Autumn Trade Fair in a couple of weeks, it will give me a good insight into the current gift and candle industry and give me a chance to meet our fabulous customers! I’m also really excited for the launch of the new Signature Couture Collection. It’s a stunning metallic range and will be perfect for the festive season, which isn’t too far away!
It’s great to have you on board Cara. We wish you all the best in your new Shearer Candles position!
