We spoke to Hannah, who is a Senior Account Executive in our Consumer & Lifestyle team, about life at PHA and how she has found her first few months with the agency.
Q. Welcome to PHA, Hannah! Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
A. Thank you! Absolutely… before joining PHA, I have worked in the PR industry for 2 years and before that studied at Sussex University. I’m a keen traveller, I love reading, and I’m a big foodie, I can’t wait to be back in the office for multiple reasons but trying all the amazing food places around is a big one! I enjoy pilates and swimming, and always promise that I’ll take up running – it hasn’t happened yet, but maybe lockdown 2.0 will be my time!
Q. What have you been working on during your first few months at PHA?
A. It’s been a busy few months since starting at PHA, I’ve had the chance to work on lots of amazing clients. When I first started, we had just started working with My Expert Midwife, a lovely company who create amazing products to soothe the commonly experienced side effects of pregnancy and birth. I also work on HCA Healthcare UK, who have private healthcare facilities nationwide, and I’m lucky enough to work on three great facilities; The Wellington Hospital, The Portland Hospital, and The Harley Street Clinic, so I’m forever learning more on the healthcare industry. Some of my other clients include leading homelessness charity St Martin-in-the-Fields, a charity devoted to helping people who are vulnerably housed or facing homelessness; we’re working with them on their Christmas Appeal this year which they’re very well known for.
Q. Now that you know your team mates a little better, how would you describe them in three words?
A. Kind, welcoming, and funny
Q. What are you most excited about achieving at PHA?
A. I’ve always been super keen to work with charities and what really drew me to PHA was the amount of amazing charities they work with. I’ve been lucky enough to start working with a charity really early on which I’m incredibly grateful for. I’m also excited to work on more healthcare clients, a lot of the clients I work with are in the healthcare industry so it’s been great exposure and I’ve already learnt so much.
Q. Tell us one thing about yourself that might surprise us!
A. I’m half Serbian! I can speak a bit, but probably not as much as I should for someone who goes every year and used to spend most summers there! My lockdown 2.0 resolution is to try and learn more Serbian (along with running).
