Employee Spotlight – Kerry Donachie, Marketing Manager

We are fortunate to have a dynamic and eclectic team here at Connect, made up of qualified specialist teachers, QTVI’s, graphic designers, expert proofreaders, and digital accessibility consultants, as well as dedicated operational teams.

We wanted to give you an opportunity to meet the faces behind Connect and find out what they get up to! In this Employee Spotlight, we meet Kerry, who is Connect Group‘s Marketing Manager.

Describe your role at Connect:

I am Connect’s Marketing Manager, responsible for the group’s marketing department.

What’s your favourite part of working at Connect?

I enjoy being able to lead the marketing department, where I am able to set the strategic direction of our marketing plans and analyse our marketing activities, whilst still being able to get stuck in with creative processes. I also enjoy supporting my team and helping them to grow as marketeers.

One of the best things about Connect are the people that I work with on a day-to-day basis.

What has been your greatest accomplishment in 2019?

I don’t know if it counts as an accomplishment, but I went to Thailand last December and spent time with rescued elephants…it has always been on my bucket list and it was INCREDIBLE.

What will 2020 hold for you?

I plan on having a few holidays where I can make amazing memories (I’ve recently celebrated my 30th birthday in New York and Las Vegas!) and hopefully moving to a new house.

What’s a fun fact about yourself?

I have a very cheeky Poochon dog called Bodhi who is my fur baby, but my usual ‘claim to fame’ is that I’ve shook Prince Charles’ hand and spoke to him during my dad’s MBE ceremony at Holyrood Palace.
