We love the variety of thoughts we get from everyone who takes part in our 60 second interviews.  Who would have thought the marketing people hanker after Pigs in Blankets in summertime?

Name: Julia Heys

Job Title: Marketing Manager  

What does your job at RGU involve?
I look after the marketing for ABS (Aberdeen Business School) as well as work on other University initiatives.  

What attracted you to come to work at RGU?
I studied at RGU from 2010-2014, and had always hoped that one day I would work in the marketing team. I’d also heard that RGU was a great employer
and I knew this would be a great move for developing my marketing career further.  

If you weren’t doing this job, what, in an ideal world, would you like to do for a living? I would love to travel the world as a content creator or bake full time!  

What’s your favourite place in Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire?
Cruden Bay beach – it is so beautiful and so peaceful.  

Best holiday you’ve had and why?
I visited Florida years ago and it was just amazing – full-on entertainment for two weeks.  

Favourite TV show?
I don’t have a particular favourite but Married at First Sight Australia has been a guilty pleasure recently!  

Favourite band/music?
I love any kind of pop music and I regularly have some sort of throwback playlist playing on Spotify!  

If you’re going to a restaurant and could only have one thing to eat (one course), what would it be?
Christmas dinner… I don’t care it’s the middle of summer, you can’t be
at pigs in blankets and stuffing!  

If you were in charge of the university for one day, what’s the first thing you would do?
I’d go for a walk around the campus and talk to the students to get their ideas they might have for the University.
