I’m Lucille, but you can call me Lu! Before I joined the Brilliant Digital team of digital marketing experts, I spent over 12 years in marketing in the natural cosmetics industry.
But in that role I was always writing … from educational pieces to lifestyle articles, there was always something to research and write about.
Writing and telling stories has pretty much been a constant in my life.
I really enjoy learning about new industries and businesses. Every day there’s a new topic to immerse myself in.
Plus, I love the flexibility. Being able to work from home while I’m caring for my young son is fantastic! It’s rare to find a rewarding job that also supports a dedicated home life.
A normal day for me is talking to clients, learning about their businesses, brainstorming content ideas, interviewing them and researching about their industry to make sure I know as much as I can to tell their stories.
I write blog posts, feature articles, social media content, event listings and anything else they want to share with the world. I switch frequently between clients based on deadlines and scheduled activities.
I was made redundant while on maternity leave from my previous role. I was terrified about entering back into the workforce and being the ‘newbie’. Plus, I had no idea how to find an employer who understood what it was like to have a bub at home who was still going to need his mum regularly.
When I saw the position ad for BD, it was like the role had been written for me; all the points I had written on my ‘want list’ were there. The family friendly culture, the supportive nature of the staff. I felt, from the first interview I had, that this was where I wanted to work.
Brilliant’s approach to clients and storytelling is more about relationship building than anything else. Brilliant really only wants to work with people they like. That’s a great rule to live and work by!
I have a pretty busy life. My almost-two-year-old son keeps me on my toes, especially when he’s chasing the cat or dog around the house! Plus, I have a bit of a side hustle where I run natural cosmetic making workshops … teaching people how to make their own natural skincare. Also, I have always loved music and have been able to play multiple instruments since I was a child. Sunday afternoons are my musical escape … I co-host a radio spot on a Sydney community station. We’re a specialist show featuring reggae, dub and dancehall music.
