Nakama London is growing! Meet Max Coltart – Resourcer Engagement Marketing

Max Coltart

Our London team is growing and we want to introduce our newest member of the Nakama team Max Coltart – Resourcer for Engagement Marketing

What are you known for professionally? Coming from a background working in Michelin star restaurants, I’m known for my work ethic and working in an intense, high-pressured environment with a close-knit team. I can also fry a pretty decent egg.

What do you love about recruitment? The dynamic nature of the industry, there’s always something going on! Also the diverse nature of the people you meet in digital, helping people take the next step in their careers.

What intrigues you about the world of Social Media and working with people who are in the field? Looking at how much social media has changed how we communicate in the last 5-10 years, I’m excited to see what the future holds, and to be a part of that change.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve done while being in London? Serving up culinary experiences for a few A-listers. The cast of the Big Bang Theory, and the English Football team, Gary Lineker, Trevor McDonald to name a few.

What would be impossible for you to give up? Restaurants! I can’t resist a new pop-up or restaurant opening. My favourite at the moment is City Social and Somsaa

What is your social media channel of choice and why? Instagram, it’s simplicity, personalised content and the ability to get up to date imagery from events, curators, brands is incredible, not to mention the bloggers. It gives you a ‘noise’ free behind the scenes glimpse into your interests. I’m also getting really into Periscope, a live feed to contributors and content creators around the world, who could resist?

Any hidden talents you want to let us know about? I was a chef for 5 years, so my BLTs aren’t too shoddy.

Meet Holly Cook, our new Resourcer for Digital Marketing

Holly Cook

Name: Holly Cook

Title: Resourcer – Digital Marketing

What do you recruit for? I resource for the Digital Marketing Team – working on roles for CRM Managers, Web Analysts, PPC, SEO and Biddable Media and eCommerce.

What are you known for professionally? I’m a real people person and can talk to anyone! This has always driven me to take on positions that have given me the opportunity to meet new people. It makes no two days the same!

What do you love about recruitment? Talking to people, hearing about their careers especially in the constantly changing digital marketing industry – the candidates I speak to have worked in some really interesting roles, but also hearing about their lives outside of work – it makes your world a lot smaller. In my first week, I learnt one of my candidates lived in my area!

What intrigues you about the world of Digital Marketing? I’m fairly new to the world of Digital Marketing, but it’s so fascinating. Everything from the emerging digital channels that weren’t available five years ago to the data available and the people behind the scenes analyzing it. It’s constantly evolving and that’s exciting.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve done while being in London? I once spoke at Wembley arena in front of 8,000 people at a youth conference! I was really nervous and at the last minute I was asked to join the dance procession – luckily I didn’t have to dance just hold a giant glowing ball. Also, the change rooms we had 1Direction had previously used – I was pretty excited about that.

What would be impossible for you to give up? The TV show – Don’t tell the bride and Grapefruit squash! (I’m addicted).

What is your social media channel of choice? Instagram – I love that you can explore the world in real-time through images and I like to post shots – mostly of food, family and my cat.

Any hidden talents you want to let us know about? Well it’s a talent I don’t have! I can’t wink… and I used to be a ballerina – the wooden block shoes were painful!
