Hello I’m Laura Ellis, the newest addition to the Marketing team at Sika House, Preston. My role is Marketing Executive for the Roofing Team and I’m here to assist with building marketing plans across the relevant market sectors to enable the Sika brand to continue to achieve market leadership. I will be involved in organising events and exhibitions, producing literature and direct mail and working closely with the team to produce advertisements.
I joined Sika in August 2014 as a Customer Service Administrator to help with sales order processing. I have been supporting customers when placing orders with us, producing reports for the sales team and helping with customer surveys and enquiries. In this role I have gained a good understanding of Sika’s background, ethics and products through the various courses and training days, on the job training and I have learnt a great deal from my colleagues and manager.
This role has been paramount in leading me to my new role within Sika as I am now equipped with a good understanding of the company.
With an Honours degree in Journalism and Feature Writing from Southampton Solent University and a Diploma in Media Studies, Marketing has always been a field that I have been intrigued by.
I have written for a few websites and had many articles published in local newspapers in my home town of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. I also have experience in retail, buying and property administration but writing is my main passion which is why I jumped at the chance to work in Marketing when the opportunity arose.
I am excited by all the prospects at Sika. There are lots of up-coming events and projects for me to get my teeth into. I am proud to be working with such a talented and knowledgeable team and be supported by inspiring managers. I will update you soon with projects I have been working on!
