When you have a small team, finding the right person – both in terms of the job itself, but also someone you’d like to have around all day every day – is so important. It’s also hard.
We’ve seen a lot of CVs lately – a lot! But when we read Michaela’s CV and cover letter, we had a feeling about her. A feeling which was quickly confirmed during her interview.
She was just very clearly a Pomegranite.
Michaela has a strong writing background, having written for VISI Magazine for years. As a company that values storytelling, whether it’s in website copy, a newsletter or on social media, this is a huge plus for us.
She’s also juuuust the right amount of weird quirky to fit right in at Pomegranite.
Let me introduce you.
Arts block weirdo. Fond of late night debates over whisky. Devourer of books. Believes the world looks better underwater and through goggles. Content producer, copywriter and social media manager. Piano plonker and guitar strummer. Kidult who always wants to know “why”.
- What did you want to be when you were little?
A famous musician.
- What do you enjoy most about social media?
Trolling my friends (jokes). I enjoy the fact that throughout the clickbait and fake news you can find pure and inspiring content gems, which will never disappear into the internet ether.
- Can you describe yourself in three words?
Ginger, oddball, hungry
- If you were only allowed to eat one pudding for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Is avocado a pudding?
- What type of Instagram account is most likely to draw you in, inspire you, leave you wondering where the last half hour has gone? Any favourite examples?
Anything with super sleek design, captivating photography and creative copy. I’m also a sucker for anything animal related and enjoy the occasional dodgy meme account. Some of my favourites at the moment are @bryni, @thecabinchronicles and @maxstrong.
- Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Aubrey Plaza. She has just the right amount of cynicism, sarcasm and deadpan humour.
- After a couple weeks, what’s been your first impression of Pomegranite?
The team are always game for a good puzzle, whether they’re fixing a website and solving the world’s social media problems one click at a time or *literally* taking a lunch break with a tough 600-piecer.
