LAURA MACKEY
MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER

“Seaward puts a huge focus on empowering everyone to put forward ideas and take responsibility for their decisions – all with fantastic support from senior management.”

I joined Seaward as a Marketing Assistant in 2012 soon after graduating from Northumbria University with a degree in Communications and PR. Through the company I completed an additional CIM qualification and after five years I have progressed to my current role as Marketing Communications Manager.

I work in a team of five and work closely with our MD, Andrew Upton, to develop and manage global and integrated marketing campaigns. I love being part of such a young and dynamic team and being given the freedom to come up with fresh and exciting ideas.

I feel extremely valued as an employee. I recently relocated to another part of the country and Seaward has given me the flexibility to work remotely. I feel incredibly lucky to have been given so many opportunities by Seaward and it’s easy to say I love my job!

LISA MAITLAND
GROUP ACCOUNTANT

“When I first joined Seaward over 30 years ago, I didn’t really know what my long term goals were. However, I soon realised that I enjoyed the challenges and achievements of working in each area of finance. Today, with a team of five, I feel extremely lucky to have been given so many opportunities by Seaward.”

I joined Seaward from a training scheme in 1987 as a Junior Administrator, which led me to work as a Bought Ledger Clerk and then Credit Control. Seaward then put me through my Business Administration NVQ Level 3 and AAT – a three year accountancy degree course.

I worked as Accountant for Clare Instruments, a Seaward-owned company, before I became Group Accountant, preparing monthly management accounts and balance sheets.

As Mark Marsh (Seaward’s Finance Director) takes on new challenge, 2019 and beyond will bring more exciting opportunities. I would like to thank Mark Marsh for his mentoring over the last 13 years; I truly appreciate and value everything I have learned from him and wish him every success in his n ew role.

BRETT SPENCE
QUALITY AND PROCESS ENGINEERING APPRENTICE

“I’ve always been interested in a career in engineering and when I visited Seaward and heard about the plans the team has for the future of the business I was really impressed.”

I love that no two days are the same. One day I could be helping set up a production line for a new product and the next day I could be carrying out specialist checks or working on standard operating procedures.

I’ve had lots of support and encouragement along the way and I’m constantly given opportunities to work on different things and build my skills. My confidence is growing all the time and I’m really excited to see where my career at Seaward takes me as I progress.

PIOTR GOLAWSKI
SOFTWARE ENGINEER

“Seaward initially wanted a full-time employee, but after meeting me and learning about the independent projects I’ve been doing on top of my university work, they offered me the role - and agreed to support me throughout my degree.”

Now I go into work have a catch up with the team and know what’s in store for the rest of the day – the fact I’m trusted to do that is great. I wanted to be independent and support myself through university so being able to do that and gain valuable experience to give me an advantage over my peers is brilliant.

It’s awesome getting real experience of working on professional software, and supporting the theory I learn at university. I’m really enjoying working with electronics and real time inputs. The future of computer science and electronics – augmented reality and artificial intelligence – is really interesting to me.

I’m encouraged to learn and develop new skills to make my own software. That’s what makes the job exciting.
