As we start a new tax year and the world begins, another new starter joins the Verus office…
We’re thrilled to be welcoming our (previously freelance) marketing executive Dr Laura Cutress to her new permanent role as our Head of Marketing and Commercial operations!
As a successful owner of multiple small businesses and having accrued over 10 years commercial operations and marketing experience with countless local and international businesses, Laura brings with her a wealth of experience in all aspects of Marketing, PR and brand development.
Prior to her role here at Verus, Laura completed a Ph.D in Law, working with a number of police forces both in the UK and abroad on developing their internal communications style to improve and manage workplace culture, whilst teaching at two White Rose universities before stepping into the corporate world. From there, she set up and managed a number of small businesses, whilst consulting for a number of other companies on their own marketing, PR and business operations.
Laura says “I wholeheartedly believe that everyone deserves to be in a company and position that is challenging, fulfilling and where you feel valued. To be able to work with Verus at such an early stage of their business growth is very exciting and I can’t wait to see what great things are to come!. I’m thrilled to be offered a permanent position after a number of months consulting with them, and as their new Head of Marketing with a difference, I’m ready to jump straight in so that they can keep the business accelerating and moving forwards, whilst the other members of the team have the very best candidates to place in their dream jobs.”
Her mission statement is simple – helping build family-focussed businesses through creative, intelligent, and authentic digital marketing – and we are confident that her varied experience and interests will breathe a new life into our marketing campaigns; helping us reach new audiences and placing fantastic candidates in their perfect roles. Her strengths lie in her incredible organisational and analytical skills, and as a qualified business coach, her positivity and ability to support and challenge our office will undoubtedly help us all at Verus achieve great things.
