Lorraine Pickles

I was Steph’s first freelancer back in 2007, and it could be said tLorrainehat since then I have played the role of ‘chief recruitment officer’ for the team, having introduced a lot of professional connections to the media evaluation sector.

My background is in finance and account management, and my strengths include building and maintaining client relationships. Over the years, I have worked on media evaluation programmes over a range of business sectors including financial, consumer brands, B2B companies and charities. I have also project managed a variety of 365 day a year daily press summary assignments.

In addition to my specialisms in media evaluation and project management, I also support the family business, Pickles Creative and Media Limited, which plays to my organisational strengths.

When I am not working, I can sometimes be found doing pilates with my colleague Barbara (it is an organised class, we don’t just do it by ourselves!) or running around the streets and hills of the scenic Rossendale Valley.
