When did you start working at Whiteoaks?

I started in October 2019

Tell us a bit more about your career progression within Whiteoaks.

I began as a Campaign Executive when I initially joined Whiteoaks, which included responsibilities such as social media monitoring and posting, campaign reporting and content proofing. After almost a year in the role, an opportunity came up to join the content team. I applied for it and was successful! Since September 2020 I’ve written content for a range of our clients across sectors such as retail, broadcast and emerging technologies as a Specialist Content Writer.

How did you get into PR?

Although my work background is primarily in marketing and project coordination after previously completing a marketing-focused business management degree, I’ve always been interested in the media and was impressed by Whiteoaks when applying to work here.

What’s been the highlight of your Whiteoaks career so far?

Probably making the successful switch to Specialist Content Writer. It was a big shift in my day-to-day responsibilities but I’m delighted that I’ve received good feedback internally and from clients on the quality of my written pieces.

What makes you smile at the end of the day?

Knowing that the words I put to paper are being published and read by professionals in a range of sectors.

When I’m not PRing I like to…

As a husband and dad, I like to spend time outside of work with my family. My hobbies include football and music. I go to Fulham F.C. matches as often as I can and I have an ever-growing vinyl collection taking up space at home!

Amber Chawner, Senior Account Manager

When did you start working at Whiteoaks?
I started in February 2019

Tell us a bit more about your career progression within Whiteoaks.
I started here not long after I graduated university as a Junior Account Executive in 2019. After a year with the business, I started an Account Executive development plan where my focus became media relations. I then moved into the media stream, where I continued to specialise in media, and then worked towards becoming a Junior Account Manager and taking on more of the management responsibilities.

How did you get into PR?

I studied journalism at university and so I knew when I graduated that I wanted to work with the media. When I was researching what that path looked like, PR seemed like the perfect option for me. Working in PR has allowed me to continue building my skillset in a field where no two days are the same. I work across a diverse range of really interesting clients, from broadcast, to cyber security, and I feel like I am always learning more about the technology sector every day.

What’s been the highlight of your Whiteoaks career so far?

As a media specialist, the highlight for me was the day I secured my first national briefing that resulted in two pieces of coverage! The call was with a journalist at The Telegraph, and the client was quoted both online and in the print newspaper the next day. Seeing that was definitely a great feeling and only confirmed that I was in the right career!

What makes you smile at the end of the day?

For me, the thing that makes me smile the most at the end of the day is when I see the results coming in. It is so easy to get caught up in the challenges, that when I see a great opportunity progress, or a fab piece of coverage come in, it makes me smile to see all the hard work pay off, knowing that the client is going to be just as pleased as I am!

When I’m not PRing I like to…

When I’m not PRing, I love spending time with my friends and family. However, if I’m not out and about, you’ll likely find me either with my head down in a book or binging a new TV series!

Natalia Kaczmarek, Senior Digital Content Creator

When did you start working at Whiteoaks?

In June 2021

Tell us a bit more about your career progression within Whiteoaks

I joined Whiteoaks as a Content Writer to create a wide variety of PR and marketing copy for our B2B tech clients. After three months, an opportunity came my way to take on a newly-formed role within our agency and become a Digital Content Creator. I am now working across both our Content Practice and Digital team, and utilising my copywriting, SEO and social media strategy experience to help our clients make the most of their digital presence.

How did you get into PR?

From a young age I knew I wanted to go to university in an English-speaking country. I just didn’t quite know what to study. What I did know was that I wanted to talk and write a lot in my future career. How very specific, right? When it came to applying for undergraduate degrees, I was drawn towards the creative field of advertising. However, I promised myself I wouldn’t study the same degree as my sister did… Couple of clicks away and there I was reading about PR. “Yup, that’s the one,” I thought.

So, I packed my suitcase, moved to England and started my PR degree at Bucks New University. After a couple of years, I transferred to Bournemouth University where I completed two internships at B2B tech PR agencies and eventually graduated with a first-class degree. I then worked as a Content Marketing Executive for a customer feedback software provider, whilst copywriting in a freelance capacity. And here I am now, still PR-ing and loving every minute of it!

What’s been the highlight of your Whiteoaks career so far?

There’s been a few, but I’d have to start with the change to my role itself as it really allows me to thrive and develop in areas I am most passionate about. Secondly, when one of our clients was nominated for an award, which I wrote. And most recently, I’ve discovered that I am a good speech writer too, having received great feedback from our client and a request to write more. The combination of learning new things and being recognised for hard work is definitely a cherry on top.

What makes you smile at the end of the day?

Great feedback from a client and a piece of cake.

When I’m not PRing I like to…

Make a mess in my kitchen trying to develop new free-from recipes. Or borrow my friend’s dog and go for long walkies. Both bring me equal joy.
