Kirsty Arnold

Digital Marketing Executive, ACIM

My work background:

I began my career in a Business Administration role as an apprentice at the age of sixteen for Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, where I held several positions. I progressed to a Customer Services Officer, which involved me speaking to and retaining over a thousand businesses in the Chamber’s membership department, as well as assisting the marketing team which lead to me becoming the Marketing & Communications Officer on a full-time basis. I am an associate member of the CIM with over six years’ marketing experience.

About my role:
I joined Hickton Group in January 2020 to assist with the digital aspects of marketing. I work alongside my colleague Harriet, to support with the implementation of the marketing plan and strategies. I liaise with Directors and Mangers of the Group’s companies to ensure that the individual companies are receiving marketing support from the Group’s marketing team.

One of the main parts of my job role is also creative design of the Group’s promotional items and marketing’s campaigns. I manage all graphic design of the Hickton Group and its companies to ensure that the branding and messages are in line and raise the profile of our Group of companies.

About me:
I like to keep myself fit. I used to play football, however I now concentrate on running, having joined my local Running Club and have weekly Tennis lessons. I can also snowboard and play the guitar (a little).

I spend as much time as I can with my partner and our Labrador Bailey, as well as seeing my family and friends.

In 2021, I took part in the Hickton Group’s charity walk of the Yorkshire Three Peaks (24 miles) which was a massive achievement for me – I had never done anything like this.

Random facts:
I’ve spoken with Paul Elliott (Chuckle Brothers) on the phone. I have also shared a dinner table with former England international footballer, Jimmy Greaves.
