I have over 10 years of experience in managing FMCG clients across website optimisation, display campaign localisation, website design and build.  When I’m not at work I like to watch movies, go hiking and spend time with the little one. I love travelling and exploring local cuisines especially in southeast Asia.”

LUCIANA SERAFIM

Paid Digital Media Manager

“I started my career in paid media at an agency in Brazil, working with small and national Brazilian brands and later, when I moved to the UK, with sports brands such as Under Armour, Adidas and Puma. I am passionate about science and applying user behaviour to improve paid media campaigns. I studied physics and astrophysics so I have a lot of fun reading articles and I particularly like when I can put what I learn into practice at work.

Outside of work I love any activity that involves nature: hiking, camping, surfing (although I’m pretty bad) and walking my dogs. I love chilling at home with my dogs and husband, making dinner, watching movies, playing the guitar, reading and gaming.”

Reason for joining Big Rock?

“I really enjoyed the interview process – it showed me that the team has great synergy, and I was really impressed with how well organised everything was.”

EMILY HAYES

Paid Digital Media Manager

“I grew up in Western Australia where I graduated with an Advertising degree and started working for the largest agency in Perth, Dentsu Aegis where I honed my skills in digital advertising and worked with great clients such as Tourism Western Australia and Crown Casino.  I volunteered for a science museum where I helped with shows and events where I later accepted a job working in content, social and digital marketing.   

After a year at the science museum, I moved to London and I’ve been here for 18 months!  My first job in London was with indie agency Goodstuff, where I learnt everything about the UK market.  developed a love of analysing data and discovering insights that can form powerful actions to improve performance and positively impact on business.        

Outside of work I enjoy running and hiking in the countryside, going to museums, cooking (and eating!) and riding motorbikes.”   

Reason for joining Big Rock?

I had my interview with Elodie, Charlie, and Robyn who seemed like really nice people. Culture and teamwork are really important to me, which is the main reason why I joined. I was also keen to work in an agency heavily focussed on performance in digital as this is something that I’m really interested in.
