Amy Gillin

Social Media Manager

Amy is our social media manager here at Pic. Overseeing our social offering, she ensures our fingers are sufficiently on the social pulse and that we deliver a cracking service for our clients.

A job in social wasn’t Amy’s first calling, however. Having initially studied theology at the University of Chester, her career path took a turn in second year, when she developed an interest in social media and marketing and started a blog, while simultaneously building an Instagram following.

With theology not having the strongest of connections to social, Amy broadened her SM horizons by working with Benefit cosmetics and Topshop as an ambassador, while also offering to take on the social accounts of various part-time university employers to help build a portfolio of experience.

After graduating with a first, Amy chose to move away from theology permanently, opting to work as a freelance content creator and social media manager for local businesses (and even family and friends’ businesses) as she established a foothold in the industry.

With her credentials sufficiently burnished, Amy then moved into an agency role, which saw her work as a client marketeer before becoming company marketing manager. A stint at a second agency then saw Amy in a similar, broader marketing role, this time being responsible for social media, UX, paid ads and email marketing.But, with social the thing that really piqued her interest, Amy spotted the opportunity to focus on social media full time by joining us here at Pic.

And here she bloomin’ well is.

Outside of work, she’s a massive foodie and wine enthusiast who loves cooking (usually with a wine in hand), and is currently undertaking a house renovation, which she is (of course) documenting over Instagram to try and get some freebies from interior design/homeware brands. Hello, John Lewis, if you’re reading this.

Originally from the Isle of Wight, Amy now lives in Worcester where, rumour has it, she likes to sit by the River Severn of an evening and pretend it’s the English Channel.*

*Yeah, we made that up.
