Lydia is our Social Media Manager. If you DM'ed us on Insta, you've probably spoke to her. When she's not working she's looking at the next pair of dungarees she's going to purchase or another plant to add to her obsession collection.
Meet our team - Lydia, Social Media Manager
What are the 3 words you'd use to describe G&G?
Fun, hard working, friendly.
What does your job entail?
I'm the Social Media Manager, so I manage all of our socials, uploading stories, replying to our customers etc. But I also do various other things from creating the blogs to organising shoots etc. The marketing team just all help each other really. That's what I love about the job - how varied it is!
How has G&G helped you in your career development?
I didn’t have tons of experience in the marketing world but the best thing about G&G is how I’ve learnt so much by trying out all different things. From photo shoots to planning projects - I’ve gained so much experience, it’s great.
What and where did you study?
I studied English Literature at Royal Holloway, University of London and always had planned to be a teacher. I started my PGCE Teacher Training and decided it wasn’t for me and now I’m in marketing!! It’s funny how things turn out but as soppy as it sounds, everything does happen for a reason!!
What are your 3 favourite garms from G&G?
What do you get up to outside work?
I also run my own business selling my art work. I love that my job is super creative and that I can carry on with that creativity in my spare time.
