We are happy to welcome Kris to the Park team

We speak to digital marketing assistant, Kris Payne

“Having left Sunderland University with a degree in Graphic Design, I joined Park in August 2017, as its first graduate. After University I worked for a graphic design company in Sunderland and also for an organisation which specialised in bridal design. It was through the University that I found out about the graduate scheme at Park.

I had a look at its website and it really appealed to me. It stood out as a friendly and sociable place to work and this was important to me. I was instantly made to feel part of the team and have settled in really well. I handle a lot of web updates and social media for the company. Using my graphic design skills I am able to create promotional graphics and help to compile marketing reports.

I have also taught myself coding which is particularly handy when updating our website. At university, the focus was more print-based, so I am enjoying the techy aspect of the role. Outside of work, I am a fan of the great outdoors. I took part in the Great North Run, 2017 and the first ever Iceland Spartan race in Dec 2017, which was gruelling to say the least, but a fantastic experience.

Perhaps a few of the Park team could be up to the challenge this year!”
