Name: Samantha McBride
Job Title: Digital Marketing Manager
How did you come to work at Scaramanga?: A friend had shown me the job advertised and I thought I would try my luck! I was very lucky, Scaramanga is a great company to work for.
What is your favourite part of your job?: I love creating and planning out our campaigns, especially around Christmas time! I also love helping with the design process of our bags and accessories. It’s really cool to have an idea and see it come to life. It’s also great when I get to use my dog Archie as a cameo in any videos we are doing. He gets a starring role at Halloween.
What is a day in the life like for you at Scaramanga?: My day can be quite varied, I have weekly tasks such as editing any adverts we have running, creating new promotions, planning out our weekly social and email activities. I love writing our blog posts, I find writing quite therapeutic.
What keeps you motivated?: When we get great feedback from a campaign or when customers comment on how well Scaramanga is being represented online it feels great.
What do you love about the brand?: I love the originality, everything we stock is either an original vintage pieces or, in regards to our bags, we designed everything ourselves; trying to create the perfect style for our customer.
What is your fav bag or accessory?: My personal favourite is our new pixie bag. I like to be hands-free when I am out and about. I don’t tend to take very much out with me. So long as I can fit my phone and my cards I’m happy. Its a really cute little bag.
Your favourite type of furniture we source?: I adore our trunks, especially the leather trunks. The history that comes with them is just incredible. We had an old marines trunk and we were able to track down his history and where the trunk had been with him and I just think having that piece of history in your home is amazing.
