I’m Margaret Browne, the new Marketing Manager here at Hampton Jones … but I’m not actually new to the company! I originally joined the Hampton Jones team in 2012 as the company’s first Marketing Manager, but a surprise addition to the family meant that returning to the role wasn’t going to be the best fit.
Over the last 3 years I’ve been working as an independent marketing consultant to numerous small businesses, and specialising in the digital space of website and social media. This has been a fantastic experience, but when the little one turned 3 I knew the time was right to get stuck back into something bigger, and return to my industry of choice; property and construction.
For a girl whose dad was a builder and now whose husband is an architect, Hampton Jones is the perfect fit for me – after 3 years away,
it feels like coming home.
A lot has changed in the time I’ve been away; Hampton Jones has really matured and developed. It has rebranded to better reflect the company personality and beliefs, and it has strengthened its core service offering, getting really clear on what we do and how we do it.
Hampton Jones have also spent a lot of time working on its why – and this is music to my marketing ears!
Our purpose is ‘to champion better buildings, because better buildings make for better lives’. This really resonates with me on a personal level and is part of the reason that I’m such a fan of this industry.
What’s fantastic though, is that despite the time and changes, the great aspects of Hampton Jones remain the same.
Coming to work is fun – there’s always laughter, activities a-plenty, and the company puts great emphasis on everyone maintaining a positive work/life balance – which again ties into our ‘better lives’ why.
So, plans for the future … raising our brand profile, creating strong relationships and making the most of the digital space – all while having fun, of course!
