Rebecca started her career as a marketing product manager followed by a stint in creative recruitment before moving into agency new business. She’s done time at a hardcore new biz agency, and afterwards 5 years in-house where she oversaw award winning new business campaigns, culminating in a 10-year freelance new business consulting career.
Her experience is primarily in marcomms but has also developed sales and marketing programmes for construction and property firms.
At Oystercatchers, Rebecca is responsible for marketing, and oversees the Club.
She has also invented a new product and brought it to market. Scooterpeg has been shortlisted for a Design Week awards, is currently stocked in JoJoMamanBebe, and has trade customers in 7 countries including Australia, Europe and the USA. It is currently patent pending.
In her down time, Rebecca spends time with her two children and watches rubbish on Netflix.
More about Rebecca (or Becca as she’s known here at Oystercatchers):
What was your background before you joined Oystercatchers?
Freelance new business for agencies. And product inventor.
What do you love most about working with Oystercatchers?
The sheer pace of things. No two days are the same, and whilst it can be quite full on at times, it’s never boring. When I look back at what we’ve achieved in less than a year I can’t quite believe it sometimes.
What’s been the highlight of your time working with Oystercatchers so far?
The awards and the platform have been amazing but overall, our Marketing Influencers project with Rankin, including having our own photos taken by him
What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?
Hanging out with my kids and friends (wine generally involved in the latter, often at the end of a day with the former too), baking, and big trashy action films.
Can you share a little-known fact about yourself with us?
Take your pick from:
- I was in a TV show when I was 6 and you can find me on IMDB and Wikipedia
- I was Club Captain of my university ladies rugby team but don’t play any more because I broke both my ankles
- I’ve walked from John O’Groats to Lands End for charity. I completed it in 26 & half days and averaged 30 miles a day.
