Meet some of the team

  • Catrin Hughes

    Account Executive, Health

    I studied English Literature at Exeter University and knew I was interested in communication but wasn’t sure where to start career-wise. Having interned at MHP, I interviewed for and was accepted onto, the graduate scheme within the Health team. Within a short space of time, I was introduced to my clients and started on the journey of understanding NHS systems, health policy and the strange names of different treatments.

    The team was incredibly supportive and it wasn’t long before I felt I was really getting to grips with the therapy areas in which I was working. Alongside this, I had a valuable secondment at mental health research charity, MQ, where I felt I could put my skills to use in a much-discussed area that was new for me. Having been a Health MHP-er for over a year now, I feel I have found my areas of focus and have been thoroughly supported throughout my training and development – I’m really positive about what’s next!

  • Giles Robinson

    Associate Director, Financial

    After spending the first three years of my career working in corporate communications at two well-known agencies, I joined MHP looking for something different; an agency where I wouldn’t be pigeonholed, where I could broaden my skill set and, importantly, stay for the long haul. More than seven years later, I’m still here and know that I made the right choice.

    Not only has MHP given me the opportunity to move beyond corporate comms and into Financial PR, advising on everything from IPOs and major M&A activity to high-profile FTSE 250 accounts and some of the biggest and best AIM companies, it’s also allowed me to develop my creativity, working on integrated campaigns with so many talented teams across MHP and Engine.

    But from my experience, MHP’s greatest asset is its people - an intelligent, interesting, encouraging and generous bunch - who support you every step of the way, making this a great place to work and an agency where your career can really take off.

  • Megan Stott

    Marketing Executive

    I started at MHP 2 and a half years ago on the reception team. It was a great way to get to know the company, the clients and how the business works. During my time front of house, I started to get involved in the annual events that MHP hold; helping with cloakrooms, name badges, greeting guests – anything that the marketing team needed help with.

    Although I loved my time on reception, after a year I was able to move to the marketing team. This was the best decision for me as I got to harness some of my pre-existing skills and widen my knowledge of social media, digital marketing and content creation. I am now completing an apprenticeship in Digital Marketing.

  • Leanne Swift

    Designer

    I have been part of the MHP design team for two and a half years, having begun my career working in multi-disciplinary design and branding studios.

    One of the great things about working at MHP is the variety of projects I have had the opportunity to be a part of. Working alongside the different client teams across a variety of sectors has allowed me to broaden my knowledge and skills immensely. Spanning the breadth of the business, our projects include creating event collateral and reports for Global Diabetes Forums, through to infographic animations, websites and toolkits for our energy clients.

    The ever-changing nature of the industry, new technology and techniques mean the team and I are always learning. It’s busy – but never dull.
