Introducing our trainees

Introducing our trainees

Having always been passionate about providing new opportunities in the PR, Marketing and Communications industry, we are very excited to have launched a new training programme. Amid a global pandemic, it’s been a difficult year for people starting their careers, so we decided to take action and help aspiring PR professionals to develop their skills and gain experience of working in the industry. In addition to our new senior hires, we have three Trainee Account Executives joining the team.

Jenna Maclean graduated in 2020 with a first-class honours degree in French and History from the University of Edinburgh. While at university she was actively involved with student television and theatre, producing a variety of content including short films, a Fringe production and award-winning online content. Through this she developed a particular interest in media relations and is very excited to continue her professional development at Muckle Media. Jenna loves travelling, having lived and worked abroad in France and gone solo backpacking in South America. In her free time, you can find her exploring Edinburgh’s coffee shops and attempting not to book another holiday.

Bobby Thomson recently graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Media and Communications which has fuelled his passion for a career in PR. Bobby has worked on a number of PR campaigns during his time at college, most notably running the Scottish Student Journalism Awards 2018. Bobby spent three summers living in America at a summer camp from the ages 10-12 and is a proud dad to one Russian Dwarf hamster called Scamp, and two dogs named Ollie and Shadow.

James Maule graduated from Abertay University with a BSc Hons degree in Sociology. With him he has brought expertise and insight from years of experience in the realms of photography, service and retail. Now, he is ready to learn all that he can about PR. As an avid photographer and Munro bagger, you might find James in the hills with his camera on the weekends.

Jenna, Bobby and James will be fully integrated members of the team, helping on a variety of accounts and learning the ins and outs of the PR industry. We can’t wait to help them on their journey!
