Team: Research Support

Laura graduated from the University of Manchester in 2003 with a First-Class BA (hons) in English and American Literature. She began her career in the advertising industry, working for a leading media agency as a Communications Planner, before moving client side in 2010. Laura joined not-for-profit organisation NUSSL as Partnerships Manager, where she was responsible for the development of partner relations with the NUS student card, before moving to join the team at (her then client) Virgin Media.

Laura held several different roles during her time at Virgin Media, and latterly, the position of Head of Network Expansion Go To Market within the Sales division. In this role Laura was responsible for the development and delivery of innovative and demand driving activation plans across expansion areas, as well as ensuring the needs and requirements of key stakeholders were met.

In 2017, Laura chose to take a career break to focus on her young family and during this period she explored her love of music, gaining employment as a pre-school music teacher to fit around family life. With the knowledge that no business meeting could be more challenging than keeping a room full of toddlers engaged, Laura decided she was ready to re-enter the corporate world in 2022. She joined team Rushup in February 2022 and is looking forward to using her varied experience and skill set to support her colleagues, and clients, at DJS Research.
