Working within the £1.49bn global construction and consultancy company Mace, Sharrie has a split role. She is currently responsible for developing and delivering employee communication campaigns designed to increase employee engagement and drive high-quality talent acquisition and retention. The other half of Sharrie’s role includes a huge programme of works involving a cultural change programme and driving initiatives for how the business manage strategic client relationships and opportunities.
In 2015, Sharrie worked on Mace’s 25th anniversary campaign. The overarching objective was to prompt and build increased advocacy levels for Mace with all of their stakeholders, most notable Mace’s employees. Sharrie delivered a yearlong campaign that increased employee engagement by 9% throughout a multichannel programme of activity. The campaign embodied Mace’s adventurous spirit by supporting the business to celebrate in a bigger, better and brighter way. Before the 25th anniversary, Sharrie managed Mace’s public sector portfolio where she developed the marketing strategy, managed the budget and developed highly targeted, multi-channel marketing communication campaigns and events.
Graduating with a degree in Psychology, Sharrie studied for her CIM CAM diploma whilst completing Mace’s three year graduate scheme. Later she graduated from an executive leadership course at Imperial College London. As a delegate on Mace’s Women of the Future programme she recognises the value in passing on learning and is a mentor to a current graduate. Passionate about people, Sharrie hopes to play a bigger part managing marketing campaigns that focus on employee wellbeing and attracting young people into the industry.
In her spare time, Sharrie volunteers for the Mace Foundation working with young disabled youths and arranging fundraising events. She can also be found frequenting Barry’sBootcamp on a regular basis. Passionate about travelling, Sharrie’s recent pursuits include India, Thailand and China and last year she took part in the Red Bull Soapbox Race.
