5 mins with Charlotte Egan of HCC

A familiar face to our lawyers and charity partners at events all over the country, Charlotte Egan has recently been promoted to Events Manager at HCC. We sat down with Charlotte to learn more about her role and responsibilities at HCC.

Tell us who you are and what your role is at HCC?

I’m Charlotte Egan and I work as the Events Manager within the Partnerships and Charities team. My role includes organising and managing events, ordering, packing and sending merchandise to events, booking travel and accommodation for those attending events, both HCC colleagues and external guests and much more but you’d be reading the list all day if I listed everything!

How did you find yourself working in the legal sector?

I started out working in a law firm as admin staff in the contact centre when I was 22 and since then have worked in varying roles in different departments including Content Writer, Business Development and Charity Events Executive, Marketing Executive, Events Executive and now I’m an Events Manager in the PAC team at HCC.

How long have you been with HCC so far? 

1 year 8 months.

What is your career highlight so far? 

So far, I’d say being promoted to Events Manager in less than 2 years.

What do you like about the company/role?

I love that my role is so varied. No two days are the same, one day I could be packing merchandise for an event, the next I could be shopping for Christmas decorations or raffle prizes. Other days I could be at an event setting up and manning our exhibition stand or sat at a dinner table in a fancy frock. Some days I’ll be in the office doing admin and working on plans for big conferences or setting up the tea/coffee facilities and ordering lunch for a BD meeting. Throughout the year, I get involved with charity fundraising and plan bake and clothes sales as well as fun events such as bingo and quiz nights. HCC is an amazing company to work for, everyone is so friendly and I love that the directors are so down to earth, they always let on to everyone when they pass and if you need anything from any of them, they’re only an email or phone call away.

What do you like most about your colleagues you work with?

Everyone is great to get along with. The PAC team is a small one and we’re all located all over the place but despite this, we all get on great and meet up whenever possible. I work with lots of people from all different teams and everyone is very friendly and easy to talk to.

Do you believe the company offers opportunities to develop and succeed professionally?

Yes, every year, we all complete the appraisal process and this is a perfect opportunity to bring up anything you might want to get out of your career, be that additional training or any changes to your role that will better benefit you and the company.

Out of the benefits we offer as an employer, which do you like best?

I’m not sure whether it’s an official benefit on paper but my favourite is the flexibility to work from home, the office or a coffee shop. As long as I have an internet connection and charge in my laptop, I can work from different locations as long as it suits the needs of the business.

Thank you for taking the time to share your role with us Charlotte – and congratulations on the promotion!
