Lukas Volskis - Web & Social Media Executive
Tell us a bit about the journey to your current role at LBS…
The journey to my current role was an interesting one. When I first applied for the Web & Social Media Co-ordinator role in May 2016, I left the ‘track changes’ option visible, on my cover letter! There were plenty of; ‘change this sentence’ and ‘how about saying this instead…’ comments all down the side. Safe to say we all had a giggle once I started working here! After a year in that role, I got a promotion to my current role of Web & Social Media Executive and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.
Can you tell us more about your job role, and take us through a typical day?
My current role mainly focuses on everything to do with London.edu and planning, managing and delivering a number of website projects. I get to work with a wide range of people from around the school which is really enjoyable. In terms of a typical day, there really isn’t one! With digital marketing, everything is always on the move so I’m constantly doing different things whether it’s web design, social media campaigns, web page personalisation and even contributing to the Life@LBS People section!
What has been the highlight of your time at LBS?
For me, a highlight occurs every time myself and my team are able to deliver a project successfully and our stakeholders are happy. Aside from that, I am the founder of the weekly Marketing and Communications General Knowledge Quiz which happens every Friday at 3pm and has been going strong for over a year. You even get a prize for losing! So if you ever have a spare 10 minutes, come down to Lorne Close as my honorary guest!
Outside of work, you’ll find me…
On a golf course. Playing Spider-Man on the PS4. At a basketball court. Supporting the MIGHTY West Ham United!

Tell us something surprising about you…
I was fortunate enough to travel the world playing basketball, between the age of 7-19. I then played collegiate basketball in the US and got a chance to play semi-professional and professional basketball back in the UK which was very cool!
