Meet: Lucy Burgess, Head of Content

👋 Hi, I’m Lucy. Watch my diary room to hear a little more about me and read what a day in the life working at Shares looks like! 👇

💼 My job and where I'm based

I head up the wonderful content team at Shares. I’m based in London (Brixton to be exact). 

😊 What I enjoy about the role

I enjoy working with such a talented group of people to create great content. Whether it’s a quick and dirty TikTok, an educational video course or a blog, I’m continually impressed by what we can create together.

Investing can be a scary, exclusionary space. I’m passionate about building a place where everyone feels welcome, and anyone can become confident enough to start investing. 

Oh, and making memes. I can’t believe that’s part of my job sometimes. 

🗓 What I'm currently working on

I’m currently working on an educational video series that introduces people to the stock market. Watch this space!

💪 Strengths needed for my role

A keen eye for detail. A passion for education. An obsession with TikTok. 

🕺 What I like to do after work and at the weekends

After work, you’ll usually find me at the gym, the local pub, or on the sofa watching Netflix high school dramas. I also love to go out for dinner (bao and ramen are my favourites). 

On the weekends, I’m usually at a wedding or hen do these days!

🤷‍♀️ Anything else you’d like to include about yourself (pets, family, friends) – write as much or as little as you’d like

My fiancé and I have a pet beagle, Bobby. If anyone says money can’t buy you happiness, they haven’t bought a dog. 

Bobby, the beagle
