My experience

I’m a firm believer that in life you should never stop learning. This is particularly applicable to the digital world that seems to be in a state of constant flux, with regular revisions to algorithms underpinning search engines and social media feeds, and rapidly changing consumer and business behaviour.

However, I currently have skills and experience in content management and marketing, social media, copywriting, search engine optimisation, PR and media relations, and strategic communications. I hope to deepen my knowledge of these areas, as well as expose myself to new experiences and broaden my skill set.

Broadly speaking, I try to write in plain English and avoid unnecessary jargon. I hope to demonstrate some of my content creation and writing skills through my blog, though a more complete portfolio of copy that I have produced can be viewed on my Wakelet profile.

In July 2018, I graduated from the University of Manchester with a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Geography. Less than a week after graduating, I started working in content marketing. I enjoy working hard, never want to stand still and am incredibly motivated to build a fruitful career.

Whilst at University, I had various positions of responsibilities and roles including:

  • Head News Editor of The Mancunion, the University of Manchester’s student newspaper
  • Freelance writer and content creator for various print and online publications, including graduate recruitment app, Debut, and national newspaper, The New European
  • Communications Intern (paid, eight-week internship), Zero Waste Europe
  • Trainee Reporter (three weeks work experience), Johnston Press Yorkshire
  • Editor-in-Chief of TalkPolitics
  • Sub-Editor, Filibuster
  • Sales Consultant, Next
