This week, we’d like to introduce our brilliant Finance and Marketing Officer Ruth!
“My role consists of writing the mini newspaper, helping to proof read, print and pack Picture News, dealing with enquiries and general office work. I enjoy working in the office as we have a great team and there are always interesting conversations about current affairs! I also enjoy going to showcase our product at head teacher meetings around the country and discussing the resource with the teachers who use it.
I believe it is very important to challenge yourself and try new things so my position at Picture News is perfect for me as my role is constantly evolving and taking me into new and exciting territory.
At University, I gained a BSc in Applied Biological Sciences leading to a career involving working in quality control, Forensics and in an NHS laboratory. I have coaching qualifications and have always been interested in helping people to develop and improve themselves and achieve their personal goals.
Becoming a mother and having a very curious and inquisitive three-year-old has led me to look at the world differently. Thinking about how events affect my child and others is why I think Picture News is such an amazing company to work for. We are so passionate about helping children to understand the world around them, process and communicate their responses, thoughts and opinions about the things that are happening around them.”
