Introducing our Events Support Officer… Lucy!

A few months ago, we were lucky to introduce Lucy to the team. Luce has hit the ground running and has shared some of her experiences of working with us – read the below to find out more!

Can you tell us a bit more about yourself / your background?

For the last 6 years prior to joining the University, I have volunteered and worked for a running event company, covering a variety of running and triathlon events across the UK. I was heavily involved in the planning and creation of the events and the delivery.

I have also spent a number of years in the Car Insurance industry where I was an underwriter for fast cars and famous people!

What inspired you to work in the Events industry?

The fast paced ever changing environment is something I thrive on – no event is ever the same! I love the planning, creation, and delivery of events. 

What excites you the most about your role? Is there anything in particular you are looking forward to getting stuck into, any Events on your radar that you’re interested in and why?

I’m excited about working within the heart of the events team at Swansea University, the team have a strong proven history of delivering great events and can not wait to be involved in the delivery.

I am particularly looking forward to assisting with the delivery of the Gala dinners, seeing the transformation of the Great Hall and creating an atmosphere for our guest for an enjoyable evening.

How has your experience working for Swansea University been so far?

Everyone at the university has been so welcoming, especially the teams I work closely with. There is so much support from peers and managers, the transition into the role has been such a positive experience.

If you could organise / host an event yourself, what is a must-have feature?

My must have feature would be to deliver something special, to create a moment that is never forgotten, a memory that means something to the person experiencing it, and hopefully being able to capture that moment.

What do you love to do outside of work?

Outside of work I spend most weekend race directing for running events, I work closely with Cancer Research Race for Life assisting with the delivery of their Pretty Muddy and Race for life events in and around South Wales. I also love playing rounders and currently play in the indoor and outdoor leagues.
