Name: Lydia Empson

Job Title: Content Producer

WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE JOINING F&T?

Before joining F&T I was a student at Huddersfield University studying Media and Popular Culture. I’m really lucky that my first full time job is doing something I love so much with such a great company.

WHAT STANDS OUT FOR YOU THE MOST ABOUT F&T?

The thing that stands out the most for me about F&T is the team. I first joined F&T back in February for a week’s work placement and everybody made me feel so welcome.

HOW DID YOU COPE DURING LOCKDOWN?

Making the most of family time and watching a lot of Netflix with my mum and sister, me and my girlfriend had a lot of FaceTime dates, too!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?

Outside of work I like to see my friends as often as I can – although it can be harder now we have all left Uni, have jobs and are no longer living near each other! I also love to read and watch old Hollywood films.

­WHAT’S YOUR GO TO TV SHOW TO BINGE WATCH?

I have re-watched Pretty Little Liars SO MANY times, but since they took it off Netflix, I have watched the entire series of Jane The Virgin and started watching Orange Is The New Black.

WHAT SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM DO YOU USE THE MOST?

It’s a tie between Twitter and Instagram – but over lockdown I became a bit addicted to TikTok!

WHAT WAS YOUR MOST FUN/EMBARRASSING #WFH MOMENT SO FAR?

The most embarrassing was probably my WIFI cutting off in the middle of meetings.
