What is your role at relative Marketing?

I am the middle (wo)man between the client and the rest of the Relative team to make sure that all projects are delivered on time and exceed client’s expectations. Having worked in project/account management roles for several years, I am good at (and enjoy 😉) cracking the whip when needed if someone veers from the colour coded spreadsheet I have created!

What do you enjoy most about working at Relative?

Everyone is really nice and welcoming but also great at what they do too. You don’t often get that balance, so I really feel I have landed on my feet getting a role within Relative. Obviously the team think the same about me too…

What is your background?

Born and bred in Salford, at 18 I decided to move to London for university – studying Project and Event Management. I ended up staying in London, and later Marlow, for a decade, working in roles that took me all over the world. Recently though I decided that the people were better up North and moved back to the motherland, Manchester.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love nothing more than being stood in a dark room or muddy field listening to live music. One muddy field even ending with a broken ankle that is now full of metal (thank you Courteeners)! I also really enjoying travelling to places I’ve never been before, next stop – Boston, for St Patrick’s Day.

About the author

Robert started off in admin, working for a marketing agency based in Manchester, before deciding he wanted to go to university and gain his HND followed by a BA Hons Degree in Business Finance with Marketing. Since then Rob has worked his way up through the ranks and now holds the position of The Oracle at the office! But unfortunately, unlike the character out of The Matrix, he doesn’t have all the answers for the team (but that doesn’t stop the questions)! Rob never says no to a hot drink (tea or coffee) to help keep his mind stimulated. He spends his time working on the business development of the company, liaising with clients and managing the work flow. And most importantly spends a lot of time working on the personal development of the team… answering questions!
