Rebecca Stenhouse is one of Charlotte Street Partners’ newest recruits. When she isn’t in the yoga studio in search of tranquillity, Becca likes to hit up Ibiza alongside other millennials. But ‘work hard play hard’ seems like an appropriate mantra for the Sproodle owner because Becca has crammed a huge amount into the short time since she graduated from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh with a BA in events management.
Her first role after studying was at Mallzee, the personal shopping online start-up. From there she progressed to Havas PR where she learnt the public relations ropes. After a year, however, she decided to use the skills she learnt during her degree course and moved to the Crowne Plaza hotel in Edinburgh where she worked in events, from their conception to delivery.
In June of 2015 she took up a new opportunity at Apex Hotels where she fulfilled a similar role and did it so well that she won Employee of the Month in November 2015. Those who worked alongside her say she was absolutely robbed of the gong in October that year and also “smashed it out of the park” in January 2016. The terrible injustice of it all. When an events role came up at Charlotte Street Partners, she seemed perfect for it and has hit the ground running, taking responsibility for our busy annual calendar of events.
