Emily Wallace

Designer

MYA is a design-focused company: we want to develop creative talent. We needed a PA, and recruited Emily for her strengths in administration: but we also noted her degree in Visual Communication from Brighton University, and now we’re expecting her to take her design skills to a whole new level.

Emily joined MYA after working in a healthcare practice, where as well as handling day-to-day administration, she was responsible for social media, and the design and production of materials for patient information and healthcare initiatives. Before that, she ran the front desk of a hotel, making the most of her personal skills and ability to think on her feet; and she has plenty of retail experience, dealing with customers, managing stock and balancing the books.

Key Skills

• Design to BA level, with high-level use of Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop etc)
• Organisational Skills: scheduling, document handling, data entry, billing, filing, inventory, Microsoft Office
• Face-to-face customer service
• Social Media

In her free time Emily picks up languages – Italian at the moment – and also a camera. But she’s more than an amateur photographer: as part of her Visual Communications degree she gained an HND in Photography. So we’re looking forward to an even higher standard of image work from MYA!

  • The team, led by Carla McKenzie, were meticulous in every detail. They modelled the cleaning requirements to deliver the optimum solution for the facilities across EMEA, and really took time to understand the culture of our business. I have no hesitation in recommending MYA and its team – they are dedicated and innovative, and always go the extra mile.

  • Carla and her team have broad experience in the industry. Apart from being very supportive in inventing (new) concepts, they also make use of their many years of experience when implementing these concepts. Their ultimate goal is to let people enjoy honest and good food.

  • They are brave enough to challenge others in pursuit of the ultimate solution, whether it be behind the scenes with kitchen flow and catering management, or front-of-house service and design.

  • If all companies who serve the independent school sector had your breadth of vision and openness of mind, I have little doubt that the sector would be a richer and more exciting place to be.

  • During the negotiation process, Carla’s knowledge and expertise enabled our company to achieve a very strong commercial outcome, and some significant savings were yielded from the exercise.
