In addition to helping across all aspects of future marketing, events and communications for The Ridings, a key part of Isabelle’s day-to-day activities will be managing and implementing the centre’s social media strategy.
Isabelle comments: “When I was studying my GCSE in Business Studies, I benefited from an insight into all aspects of the world of work, however, it was the marketing part that I really excelled in. Luckily, it was also the section I enjoyed the most, which led me to consider a career within the industry.
“I am thrilled to have joined The Ridings’ team and I am looking forward to shadowing Sara and developing all the necessary skills that will enable me to fulfil my career ambitions in the future.”

Sara Hassan, Marketing Manager, adds: “Isabelle is a fantastic addition to The Ridings and is already playing an integral role within the team. What impressed us most about Isabelle is her professionalism, knowledge and determination to succeed, we have no doubt that she will prove herself to be a real asset to the centre.”
