I graduated in 2013 with a 2.1 BA (Hons) in English Literature. I really liked Shakespeare but didn’t properly fall in love with theatre until I saw Othello at the National Theatre that September. That’s when I decided I wanted to work in the West End.
Fast-forward a few years (and quite a few jobs) to when I was living in London, suddenly unemployed, but got a call from my temp agency saying there was a placement with a theatre marketing agency. I’d never heard of them and hadn’t even considered theatre marketing as an option, but they told me a little of what JHI did and I got really excited.
In my first week we listened to Disney songs and the Hamilton soundtrack, and I knew it was the place for me!
