Say a warm hello to our new Social Media Executive, Becky.
Fun-loving and eco-conscious Becky joined Ouma this August and has already brought so much energy and enthusiasm to the team. Becky will be responsible for managing the social media accounts of our many varied clients, whilst supporting with content creation alongside her regular social duties.
Marketing isn't a new venture for Becky, however, who has spent the last eight years working within the property industry in sunny, South Wales. Working for local Estate Agents, Becky has taken care of business social media accounts and was also responsible for undertaking filming and voice over for the marketing of properties. This work led her to consulting with a Cardiff based production company on television shows regarding property renovation and interior design, where she even presented an episode for BBC One Wales.
Never quite believing that a sustainable living could be made from creativity and writing, Becky pursued several other career ambitions before finding herself in a place of workplace happiness, where she could truly demonstrate her natural flair for word artistry. Born and bred in Sussex, Becky initially started life after school within the performing arts and dance arena, before swiftly realising she didn't quite fit the brief for theatre. Her subsequent move to London paved the way for her to work within two boutique sister hotels where she gained a vast amount of life and professional experience.
Becky left London in 2010, aged just 20 and ventured down to South Wales to live closer to the family of her partner, Geraint. It was here that Becky was finally able to explore her passions and most notably her joy for leading an eco-friendly lifestyle and innovating new, sustainable lifestyle practices. She invested in a property situated within a quarter acre of private woodland and with the support of her partner, hand-built her own Scandinavian inspired Airbnb cabin, with traditional wood-working tools and techniques as opposed to modern-day carpentry methods. Now, she invites people to stay and discover the benefits and beauty of living in a planet-friendly, sustainable built and powered environment. Host to regular workshops focused on back-to-basic traditional principles, Becky is most proud of the launch of 'Fforest Hill' - an eco-conscious project and collective that is incredibly close to her heart.
Of course, it comes as no surprise that nature-loving Becky is an avid fan of the outdoors and regularly takes off to enjoy the beaches and coasts of the Gower and surrounding areas. Paddle-boarding, bouldering, yoga and walking her rescue dogs, Cadbury and Indie, are the first-choice activities for spending the weekend away from her 9-5 work desk.
Becky is excited to be starting at Ouma.
"I'm honoured and excited to have the opportunity to support progressive and forward-thinking businesses during their time of professional growth and change. I see great responsibility in working with a comprehensive social media strategy to create relatable content and achieve noticeable results. Social media and digital marketing is constantly evolving and it excites me because it offers so many opportunities to businesses of all sizes, that wouldn't have been possible 20 years ago. I am excited to get involved with a variety of different projects within Ouma Group and work with such a creative and dynamic team"
The enthusiasm is mutual, and the entire team at Ouma are thrilled to have Becky on board. "We feel incredibly lucky to have Becky join our growing team. A lively character and full of enthusiasm for her new role, Becky is already a fantastic fit within our 'Ouma family'.
Not only will Becky be supporting with social media management and content creation, her marketing knowledge and creativity also means we can provide her with opportunities to dip her toes into digital ads management, graphic design and strategy creation.
We're very excited to see what the future has in store for Becky, and the new ideas and outlook she'll bring for Ouma and our clients." - Rachel, Director at Ouma.
