My name is Eleanor, but you can call me El. I am the newest recruit at Live & Local and I have joined the marketing team as the Marketing Assistant.
I have recently finished my degree in English and Drama at Loughborough University and this is my first full-time job. I will find out my degree results in a few weeks time – fingers crossed!
I’ve been interested and involved in the arts for many years now from performing in shows myself at school and studying the arts at uni, to beginning my career in arts marketing at a receiving house called Loughborough Town Hall in the East Midlands and now exploring rural touring with Live & Local.
I have had a range of work experience to date from lifeguarding and swimming teaching, to working in the press office at a charity and organising events for my university magazine. Joining the marketing team at Live & Local is an exciting step for me and I eager to learn as much as possible. Outside of work I enjoy water-based sport such as swimming, scuba diving and canoeing. I am also a big foodie and I love cooking and eating out.
We are busy building up to the start of the season at Live & Local HQ in Warwick and I am looking forward to seeing my first Live & Local show in the autumn. I am also excited to attend the NRTF rural touring conference in July and meet some of the local promoters and theatre companies.
I look forward to meeting you!
