The opportunity to work for some great local brands that are respected within the community both in print and online. Archant also has a great family feel about it with staff that are passionate and want to make a success of the products they work on.

What is the most interesting part about your job?

Talking to different customers about our brands and the challenges that they face in the local markets, but also seeing new ideas and innovations come to life and making a difference not only to our products but our customers' businesses.

What are the challenges?

Ensuring that we achieve our targets on a weekly basis is the main one! But ensuring our products look the best they can at all times requires constant monitoring.

The media industry is one of the most exciting to work in, with no one day the same. It is constantly evolving with opportunities to sell and work across multi media platforms. In this role I have the opportunity to drive revenues across all platforms and lead a team of people that are passionate about the brands and communities they work for.
