Emily Thacker-Seaman

Title: National Account Manager, Bride Portfolio

Based: Across UK

Hi Emily, what’s your role at Archant?

I look after our major national clients whom advertise across our growing Bride portfolio. We produce 13 monthly glossy magazines, a wealth of digital products and six national wedding shows a year so it keeps me busy!

What do you most like about your role?

I get to work with some amazing brands. We believe it’s important our advertisers have a single point of contact so I am able to really get to know my customers and create the right solutions for them, across multiple platforms. This provides me with a huge amount of variety in my role.

How have you progressed at Archant?

I started part time as a back-to-work Mum on the recruitment desk, placing job adverts into our East Anglia newspapers. As my kids grew up, I took on additional responsibility and became Team Leader before moving to a National role working across the UK.

How has Archant supported you?

Archant has invested in me, no doubt about it. I was enrolled in our Leadership and Management Academy which as a new manager really helped me. I’ve been able to undertake many courses to refine my sales and people management skills. My manager on the recruitment team always pushed me to achieve and helped me make the transition into my national Bride role. I couldn’t wish for any more!
