A journalism graduate, Lucy has worked in press office, marketing and public relations roles for almost 20 years. Before joining Clarity, the majority of Lucy’s career was spent in the charity and public sector, working for the RSPCA, NHS and the Environment Agency. In her role as Regional Media Relations Manager for the Environment Agency, Lucy dealt with regional, national and international media, and assisted in the media response to a number of high profile events, such as the devastating Midlands floods in 2007.
Lucy took voluntary redundancy from her role in 2011 due to office relocation and spent some time as a freelancer whilst looking for the right role. During her years at the Environment Agency, Lucy had developed a passion for the environment and sustainability and was delighted to join Clarity as Communications Manager in 2012.
From media relations to event planning and branding to customer communications, Lucy is involved in many aspects of our business. As editor of Clearview, she has significantly developed our corporate monthly newsletter and expanded our digital communications.
Although coming to Clarity with experience in the sector, Lucy says the role was a learning curve for her: “I was used to working in public sector organisations, where the culture can be very different, but I immediately loved the dynamic nature of our business. Working closely with David our Managing Director, from day one I have felt like a valued and important member of the team.
“In the six years I have been at Clarity I have seen the business grow and develop and I would like to think that the work I do has supported that growth. We recently expanded the communications division, taking on a Marketing Executive at the end of last year, which will help us to go even further in the work we do to assist our teams. It’s an exciting time to work at Clarity and we have some big plans for the year ahead.”
