I manage our team of five consultants who handle roles in agencies, keeping abreast of all disciplines including integrated, digital, advertising, market research, CRM, PR and content. I also have specific responsibility for recruiting for design agencies and brand consultancies. I work Tuesdays to Fridays in a job share with Kate Barlow.
I went on to work at Publicis and DDB and campaigns I managed ranged from Vidal Sassoon’s sponsorship of London Fashion Week, to government campaigns to help Britain’s poorest pensioners. I moved over to brand consultancy in 2000, as a client director at Interbrand, where I led large scale corporate branding projects, for clients as diverse as a Russian investment bank, a Belgian mining company, and Beefeater Restaurants. I joined Stopgap in 2005 to develop the design & branding sector here and now manage the whole agency team. I love the spark, energy and creativity of the people in the design world so it’s a joy to meet fresh talent every day. I have a particular interest in coaching.
I think musical theatre makes the world a better place. I am surprisingly knowledgeable about superheroes. In my free time, you’ll find me exploring the Surrey Hills with my Tibetan Terrier, Lola, cooking mountains of food to feed a house full of boys, and posting my recipes on my family food blog.
I've spent half of my career at Stopgap and still get a buzz from placing the perfect person in their dream job!
I was also a child actress, however, as my acting career peaked by the age of 10, I now settle for being a licensed chaperone, and look after performing children backstage.
Eloise, I wanted to say thank you - you are very easy to talk to and seem very rofessional and well organised. I don't think we should take these things for granted so I prefer to tell people when I appreciate them for something. No wonder the big brands work with you!
Eloise has been amazing! Super professional, lovely to deal with, and very responsive. Her colleagues have also been very helpful. Anne Collins, Brand Comms
