Client Account Manager
Helen is another born and bred Yorkshire lass, originating and currently living in Leeds. As you can see she is a fiery red-head and brings a real spark to our team.
Helen became a ‘Coconut’ in August 2014. Her role includes client account management, organisation and running of the Coconut Workshops and assisting Sarah in our latest exciting venture ‘Market Your Franchise’. Here, she puts her skills in planning, client relationship care and recruitment to good use.
“Having a background in sales and recruitment has suited my role at Coconut very well. My main area of expertise within Coconut falls into assisting and improving franchisor sales processes and recruitment techniques.”
Helen thrives in fast-paced environments so fits in well with Coconut Creatives! She combines her love of networking with business development and works closely with Coconut founding partner, Sarah Carlile.
Spare Time Stuff
Growing up with a Mum as a librarian instilled a love of reading into Helen, especially on all things magical and fantastical. Her favourite stories are dark fairy tales that always end with a twist. On an evening she loves nothing better than relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine (or two!)
Despite her well groomed appearance, Helen is also a die hard rock fan. On a weekend she can often be found at the front row of the loudest gig in town or at a rock music festival. “After a hard weeks work, I like to let my hair down.” It’s hard to judge this book by its cover.
The Brainy Bits
Helen studied Psychology BSc at Sheffield Hallam University before taking on a career involving customer relations and account management. A self-professed workaholic, Helen is always looking forward to the next opportunity to bring something new and exciting to the table – a key ingredient that adds value to every Coconut client. The hard part is getting her to stop!
“Until I joined Coconut, I always felt that something was missing from my work life. Now with Coconut, I’ve found a place where I naturally fit. It’s great being able to work hard with my friends in a creative and supportive environment. Not only do members of the team care about each other, everyone is committed and focused on delivering great results to every single client.”
