Rebecca Garrett, from Rebecca Garrett Media Ltd, based at Plymouth Science Park in Devon, has been shortlisted for a Natwest Venus Award in the Sandler Training Employer of the Year category. She is now asking fellow Devonians to get behind her.

Rebecca said: “I am delighted to have been nominated – to be considered as an attractive employer has always been our aim. The success of the business is down to not just my own passion but to our strong and dynamic team. We’re proud to provide an array of employee benefits and an awesome training and reward scheme to ensure everyone reaches their full potential and that they are motivated and inspired daily. “

Rebecca formed the company three years ago, although she had been working in the media promotions sector for more than 20 years in London, before moving to Devon with her family.

During this time, Rebecca has grown the company; which offers an exclusive service sourcing promotions, competitions and features for a diverse range of clients, including 2000 high street, beauty and leisure brands and holiday companies. The firm has acquired an impressive client list during this time, including Britain’s Got Talent, XFactor, SKY, Butlins, ELC and Mothercare.

She hopes a chance to win the award will help the company attract even more top talent from across the South-West.

“We are always on the lookout for talented individuals across the South-West who want to follow their dream of a career in media, without having to re-locate to London. This region can offer just as good opportunities for talented people.”
