Hillsgreen Welcomes Anna Tomlinson

Hi everyone,

My name is Anna Tomlinson and I started working at Hillsgreen in August 2019 after achieving my BSc Hons degree.

When it came to leaving school, I was particularly naïve and had very little idea of what I wanted to do as a career. So, having grown up within agriculture, I decided to go to Harper Adams University to study BSc Business Management with Marketing.

As part of my degree, I acquired a placement job at Seasoned Cookery School in Derbyshire. In-between taste testing some incredible food, I handled the day-to-day admin of the cookery courses and project managed website builds and technical marketing activities such as website optimisation and link building. During my placement I had the opportunity to work with business consultants, and I decided I might actually really enjoy going down that route with my career.

Certain that I did not want to convert to city life, I decided to reach out to Hillsgreen Managing Director, Andy, for some work experience. I had a fantastic week where I learnt lots and had a great insight into the type of work necessary within the role. Find out more here.

I then went back to Harper Adams for my final year where I was super motivated to finish my degree and start earning some money! I tried to choose a dissertation topic which would benefit me in the future, so I went with an influencer specific dissertation, combining two passions, marketing and equestrianism. I graduated with first class honours (Phew!).

I am now back to officially kick start my career in marketing, and I am super excited to get involved in helping innovative rural businesses.

I am really looking forward to working with the Hillsgreen team as we continue to grow.
