Name: Helen Wood.
Job Title: Marketing and Accounts Manager.
What is your job? I split my time between managing the accounts for the business and running marketing campaigns which include planning, managing and executing all forms of activities along with the help of my marketing admin assistant, Jess.
How long have you worked for ERW? Since I left school at the age of 16, firstly as a weekend job then progressing to full time after leaving education in 2005. That means I’ve been working at ERW for over 13 years!!! I have actually been in and around the business my whole life as it is a family run company.
How would you describe working at ERW? It’s a great tight nit environment. With it being a family run business it has a great atmosphere and all members of the team are looked upon as members of the ERW family.
What is your favourite part of the job? Getting to see the final outcome of any marketing campaigns and knowing that the work I do is helping the business thrive and flourish. The thing I enjoy doing the most is working alongside my marketing assistant Jess, creating new ideas and developing activities.
What have you worked on recently that you’re proud of? The creation and design of the new website, working alongside the web developers I helped design a whole new website for the company.
What do you look forward to doing at work each day? Creating new ideas to help the business grow.
What is the most important thing you have learnt working here? How hard running a business through times of global recession can be and the effects it can have on a business. Most significantly, the importance of getting business strategy and marketing activities absolutely right. We have been very successful throughout the global recession but I know many other window industry companies that have suffered.
If your co-workers could describe you using three words what would they be and why? Bubbly, Trusting and Mental. I am a very friendly person who has a very bubbly personality and I am in a line managers role so I am required to be a person who my colleagues can come to and trust with any information. I do have a very trusting nature outside of work and this helps a lot with my role within my work place. I like to have a laugh and a joke and I am very outgoing and sometimes crazy, there are many days I can honestly say I have cheered someone’s day up in the office because of my craziness.
What do you like to do to relax when you aren’t hard at work? I have a very busy family life having two young children so I like to spend my weekends doing family activities, spending time with them in the park and going on bike rides and walks.
