“I have worked as Managing Director of Delamar Academy for 10 years now and strive to provide a fantastic learning experience with the best tutors and work opportunities possible for our students. I love working with the students, helping to build up their confidence and ultimately, launching them into the industry. Having trained at Delamar myself in 1996, and worked on TV dramas and feature films for 10 years, I can remember how daunting it was to make the jump from classroom to film set, and to work as a freelancer in a competitive industry. I find it very rewarding to nurture and guide our graduates on their career paths.”
“Delamar Academy! How time flies. I’ve worked at the Academy for five years and everyday is different and full of fun and creativity. It’s a joy watching the students arrive as make-up novices and grow through our courses into skilled technicians of their chosen profession. I love sharing their journey with them. It doesn’t stop there either, as we support our graduates into work placements within the industry. We work closely together as a small team and I love the intimacy of being involved and helping to create such a fantastic atmosphere and support system within the Academy.”
Jacqui is our student welfare officer and is here to help with any of your personal needs that might be distracting you from the course. She also co-runs the Agency and so will place students and graduates on the student films, fashion shoots and theatre projects that come to us.
“I look after all things social media, digital, events, and student shoots. The academy itself, tutors and students’ work is all so exciting for me, I love the hubbub. You will most likely find me making Instagram stories. There is a lot of opportunity here, for a school that has developed the best reputation in an old fashioned way of personal recommendation. Marketing such a high-integrity business in the area of make-up (which I love), makes me excited to come into work every day.”
Legal graduate turned beauty industry professional, Emma has worked in marketing for 5 years, specialising in digital and creative content. As a freelance make-up artist on weekends and beauty product obsessive (on every day), Emma moved to the beauty industry to look after online marketing at retailer, Space NK, across their entire brand catalogue for nearly 3 years, before moving brand-side, to consult.
“After joining the Delamar team in the summer of 2014, I immediately felt welcomed by all the staff, students and tutors. Coupled with being on site in the Ealing Studios, no day is the same here at the Academy. There is always a fantastic energy and excitement from everyone. Having come from a make-up background myself I instantly warmed to Academy life.
A typical day would start with welcoming all the students and tutors ready for a day’s teaching. I manage daily enquiries and interviews, taking prospective students around the academy for tours.”
