Today it’s not the PR team that’s asking the questions, for a change. Instead of them peppering others with questions, we give them a chance to speak for themselves. The questions have been provided by our dear colleagues who previously starred in a Meet a Spreader interview. They did a great job replying to both interesting and challenging questions – see for yourself and find out more about our PR team:
How did you get into Spreadshirt, and what exactly does PR do?
Eike: I actually managed to get into Spreadshirt straight after my studies in 2007. Having finished my final exams in the last week of March, I started working here on April 1st as a Junior PR Manager. The “Junior” eventually disappeared from my job description, and since 2013 I’ve been Head of Global Public Relations and Corporate Communications. Put in a nutshell, I’m responsible for corporate communications and public relations at Spreadshirt in Germany, and also internationally.
Just to be clear: Maria takes care of communication with the Spreadshirt’s customers, and we are responsible for all other forms of communication with the outside world. This most of all means dealing with journalists and the media.
Anja: I was out on maternity leave when one day two girlfriends of mine unwittingly sent me the same message: “there’s a vacancy at Spreadshirt!” Truth be told, I didn’t think it possible to get back into work straight after parental leave, but suddenly everything went very quickly. And so it happened that I started working at Spreadshirt in April 2013. I don’t really have a title yet; in my signature it just says “Public Relations”. My focus is on events and sponsorship. But I also “entertain” journalists – it’s all like Eike said: supervising TV shoots, designing awards and preparing conferences and similar tasks are all part and parcel of our very varied job. continue reading ‘Staff talk – introducing the PR team’
