Synopsis

Today we're interviewing our Marketing Assistant, Amy (aka me!)

What do you do at Chards?

I operate the social media accounts as well as helping out with marketing and video production. I usually deal with new product releases.

How long have you worked for Chards?

10 years. There’s been so many incredible changes from a complete website overhaul to moving showrooms. 

What's the best thing about working at Chards?

Apart from working for a reputable company, definitely the people! And the sparkly jewellery. 

What's your favourite coin?

The Back to the Future hoverboard coin. We’ve never stocked it but I love an ‘80’s vibe.

One thing you didn’t know about the coin / bullion industry before working at Chards?

I always thought ‘bullion’ referred to the giant gold bars you see in films. I still remember someone showing me a Krugerrand and thinking 'is that it?!'.  

What would you be doing if you weren’t working at Chards?

A cookie-sandwich business because why settle for having dangerous levels of sugar in your system when you can have critical levels? 

What's your favourite quote?

"Every pizza can be a personal pizza if you try hard enough and believe in yourself" - Bill Murray. 

What are your current top 3 podcasts/books?

1/ My Favourite Murder - I probably listen to about 4 podcasts a day, but murder ones are my favourite.  

2/ Smartless - Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Sean Hayes interview mystery guests.

3/ Stories I Only Tell My Friends by Rob Lowe. It's my current read and completely fascinating!

Do you have a favourite work mishap? 

I once tweeted it was St Patrick’s day about a month in advance. I meant to hit the schedule button but it got away from me! 

Any secret talents? 

I’m really good at having a photo taken where the top of hair vanishes. It’s very reflective. 

Anything else you would like to say? 

I set these interviews up for the rest of the team, and it’s actually pretty embarrassing, so well done rest of the team! You’re all good sports!
