Emily Pippard

Marketing Associate & Internal Comms

Emily joined Savannah in October 2020. She started as a project coordinator, before being promoted to be an EA in the Technology and Digital Practice. In June 2022, she then moved into the Marketing team.

My story

Since graduating in 2014 with a BA (Hons) in History and English Literature, I spent the next five years working in temporary/ contracted administration roles across a variety of sectors. In between the temp contracts I travelled as much as possible, backpacking around 30+ countries across Southeast Asia, Australia, and Latin America, and taking shorter trips to Europe. In 2019, having just returned from seven months travelling in Latin America, I started as a Junior EA at another Executive Search firm. A year later I was made redundant due to Covid, and happily found myself at Savannah in October 2020.

My focus

During my first six months at Savannah, I worked as a ‘Delivery Coordinator’ which meant I was solely focussed on assignment delivery, working across different teams. In May 2021 I was promoted to EA, a very fast paced role for a busy partner in the Technology and Digital Practice. After seven months, I wanted another challenge – so alongside my EA role, I picked up responsibilities within the marketing team one day a week. After six months juggling the two jobs, in June 2022 I moved into a full time marketing role, with internal comms.

My motivation

My main motivations are learning and achieving – I enjoy working hard, being challenged, using my brain and learning as much as I can. My other motivation is building relationships – I am very much a people person and really enjoy interaction with colleagues, candidates and clients.

Why I like working at Savannah

Despite the challenges of starting a job remotely, the friendly ‘people first’ culture still managed to shine through. I have found everyone to be hard-working experts in their fields and always happy to help/ share their knowledge –  it is a good place to learn! I now do my bit to contribute to the culture, by organising all the socials and helping coordinate the five ESG committees.
