Pick & Mix Welcomes New Team Members

We have some incredibly exciting team updates at Pick & Mix! 

Welcome Emily 

In January, we welcomed Emily to our team as our Junior Social Media Assistant & Copywriter. With a first-class Journalism degree, Emily has had experience producing engaging news content that can be shared online and across social media. 

After graduating from Leeds Trinity University in 2020, she spent her lockdown years working on a freelance basis, contributing content to a variety of outlets covering topics ranging from the pandemic to gaming. 

In her new role, Emily will be creating bespoke content for our clients and ensuring that their accounts are running smoothly. 

“I have loved my time here so far and have been supported every step of the way by the team,” Emily said. 

“I am looking forward to developing my skills and working with clients to help grow their online presence.” 

Welcome Sara 

We are also pleased to welcome Sara Amil-Smith to our team who was appointed Director of Business Operations for Pick & Mix in March. 

Sara previously worked as the administrator for Indie York, a not-for-profit association that represents over 220 independent businesses in the city. Moving into her new role, Sara will be managing the team at Pick & Mix whilst prospecting new business and building connections. 

Before this, she was self-employed and ran her own Bed & Breakfast for 15 years. This experience has allowed her to develop strong local connections. 

Sara is excited to step into her new role and help the team and business reach new heights. 

Support from Bella and Liv 

Pick & Mix Marketing has also welcomed support from Isabella Storey and Liv Cooper from our PR team at MK Public Relations. 

In February, Bella, who is the Senior Communications Executive at MK, began supporting the team to produce bespoke social media content for clients and provide a helping hand with the increasing workload. 

Her PR experience and deep understanding of the online world has provided an exciting new perspective on content creation, as she shares new ideas to help our clients’ accounts grow. 

Liv Cooper, an Intern for MK, who is also in her final year at Sheffield Hallam University studying towards her Journalism degree, has begun supporting the Pick & Mix team alongside Bella. 

With ambitions of working in the PR industry within the sports sector, Liv is using this opportunity to learn about creating social media content. She is learning about how this style of content production differs from PR and how she can use social media to target audiences and grow accounts. 

2022 has been a very exciting year for Pick & Mix, and we can’t wait to see how our team progresses!
