MEET THE TEAM | Rachael Sowerby, Sales and Marketing Assistant

Rachael Sowerby joined Cottam in 2021 and supports the Sales and Marketing Team.

  • Can you describe your role…

I’m the Sales and Marketing Assistant here at Cottam. I am responsible for managing the sales inbox and helping customers to place their orders, as well as managing the Cottam social media accounts and content calendar.

  • What would be your dream job if you didn’t work at Cottam?

Anything with dogs!. I love dogs, they make the best friends.

  • Scones – jam first, or cream?

I don’t like scones (criminal!), but if I did have to choose…jam, because it looks better!

  • What’s a random fact about yourself that no one would know?

I once slept next to one of the lion statues in Trafalgar Square. It was for the premier of the final Harry Potter film. You had to be there a day in advance to see the stars, but it was well worth it – I saw most of the cast including the author JK Rowling and managed to get Warwick Davis’ autograph.

  • What is the best thing about working at a brush factory?

Learning new things about our products and how they can help customers. I love being able to apply my marketing skills to a totally different industry.

  • I hear you’re turning 30 very soon – what would you like to achieve in the next decade?

I’d like to get on the property ladder and buy my first home – as soon as I buy a house I’m going to get a dog! I would also like to continue working in marketing and achieve my level 6 CIM (Chartered Institute of Marketing) qualification.

I’d also like to travel more – travel is a passion of mine, I love visiting new places and learning the history.
