Name: Matthew Hearfield
Title: Marketing Advisor
Region: Stockton-on-Tees, United Kingdom
Time with company: Since April 2022
What do you do at Energy Resourcing?
I work as a Marketing Advisor for the UK team. My role primarily involves creating, organising and executing a range of marketing campaigns across multiple channels. This includes working on advertising, social media, brand awareness and much more in the UK.
How did you get into your current career?
I started work at a music publishing company through a university internship programme. I did some marketing work with them and worked on supplying music for a couple of TV advertisements and shows in the UK. From there I decided to improve my marketing skills and eventually moved into a full-time marketing role in the technology sector.
Are you working on any specific projects at the moment?
My major project at the moment is working on calculating the carbon usage of the company and how we can offset that to become a carbon-neutral business in the UK.
What’s the best part of your role?
Probably how different every day is and the number of things I get to work on, from creating adverts, to blog writing, to attending events. The range of work keeps each day interesting!
What is the most challenging part of your role?
Probably the admin side of things; there’s a lot of cross-department communication involved, getting everything signed off and ensuring the right people are involved in the process of creating a piece of work. That can be difficult.
Any words of advice to young graduates?
You might not know exactly what industry you want to work in, or even what role is best suited to you, but continually trying to improve your skills opens a lot of doors further down your career. I’d recommend really thinking about each skill you want to dedicate time to and how you would apply it now and in the future.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Outside of work I like to play guitar, reading, cooking, and playing video games, although I always feel like I’m adding new hobbies to the list!
What was the last book you read?
‘The Sun Also Rises’ by Ernest Hemingway.
Film you watched?
Music you listened to?
‘Shore’ by Fleet Foxes. I’m a big music fan but this is the last thing I had on!
