We asked Melanie Dias, who is an associate director in our Technology team, to shed some light on what it’s like for her to work at FHF London, what she includes in her new working from home ritual and her advice for others trying to get into the PR industry.

Hi Melanie! What has been your new work from home ritual?  

A hearty breakfast, brisk walk at lunchtime and regular breaks from my laptop to stretch my legs.

What new skill have you flexed in lockdown? 

Like many others, baking! It was a lot of fun making spooky pumpkin quiches for the Tech team’s inaugural Halloween bake off.

What shows have you been binging on lately?

Where to begin… Most recently Trial 4, Room 2806: The Accusation and Bridgerton for some light relief.

What do you love about working at FHF London? 

There’s a real culture of collaboration, transparency, generosity and kindness that I’ve rarely seen elsewhere.

What’s the most valuable skill used in your role? 

Copywriting, storytelling and editing all types of content. Outside of work, I love creative writing too.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

I really enjoy coaching and supporting colleagues to help them develop their skills and realise their potential.

What’s your advice to someone wanting to get into the industry? 

Have a clear idea about why you want to work in communications in the first place and be ready to demonstrate your passion.

What’s your go-to karaoke tune?

Venus by Bananarama, without question. Performed in karaoke bars across Europe!
