Finding my feet in B2B and FieldHouse

After graduating with a Philosophy degree from the University of Birmingham and finishing my law conversion course I was, like many graduates, still unsure of how to find a career that would be a good fit for me. I decided to take a gap year, which included three months living in Spain, where I attended language school. This time out allowed me to refocus on what skills I wanted to develop and bring to my next role, and helped me consider my employment opportunities – ultimately leading me to communications.

The majority of my communications experience to date has been with consumer technology and lifestyle brands. While I enjoyed the communications elements of the work at my previous agency – securing coverage, building networks, and angling a story to reach an audience – I quickly realised that working on consumer brands wasn’t a long-term fit for me. B2B was an obvious next step because I’m motivated and excited about getting under the skin of an organisation, telling a story, and exploring and articulating broad and complex issues. FieldHouse was particularly attractive because, alongside the appeal of working on the B2B side of things, there are a number of clients in the financial and technology sectors – two areas that I know are currently undergoing massive disruption.

During my interviews with the team at Fieldhouse, conversation flowed and I quickly realised that they’re an incredibly focused team with a warm, cohesive culture, all the while working with an expanding list of exciting, high-growth clients! It was for these reasons that I knew I was ready for a new challenge and sitting at my desk on my first morning I’m looking forward to building relationships with my new clients and getting to know the rest of team.
