Frost was previously a PR executive on Sky’s Content PR team, where she was responsible for planning PR strategies across channels and shows, including the Sky Movies Harry Potter and Star Wars channel launches, and building a new strategy for award submissions.

She started on the Sky Corporate Affairs Graduate Programme in 2013, and worked across teams in divisions including Internal Comms, Corporate Social Responsibility, Sky News PR and Product and Brand PR.

Sackey joins TalkTalk as consumer PR manager from Nickelodeon UK, where she was a PR executive. During her four and a half years at Nickelodeon, she worked across Nicktoons, Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon, as well as Viacom Consumer Products.

She was also responsible for delivering PR campaigns for several programme and product launches, including bringing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back into popular culture and launching pre-school property Paw Patrol.

Young was previously UK sustainability manager at Bupa, where she was tasked with creating a new approach to community giving and working with colleagues to exceed Bupa’s global 20% carbon reduction target.

Before Bupa, she worked across fundraising, comms and public policy in the charity sector, most notably for Cancer Research UK and Unicef UK.
