    Social Media Assistant - SoundUNILAD Group
    Manchester, United KingdomFull Time
    Since joining UNILAD, I have gained experience in a variety of fields. On a day-to-day basis, I handle Instagram operations for UNILAD Sound, using Hopper, Insights and Trello to manage the platform efficiently, and have grown the platform’s followers by 23% in 6 months. I have used communication tools such as Slack to collaborate with colleagues in London and Manchester to develop new strategies and content. Over the course of the past 10 months, my role has lead onto; event management (working at Wireless 2018 running the UNILAD/UNILAD Sound Instagram), scriptwriting (Sound Sauce IGTV), campaign work (Sky One’s ‘Bulletproof’), researching and talent management. I have gained experience in content creation, and have led the creative direction process for various projects. Firstly, ‘Sound Sauce’, a digital editorial platform based across Facebook story and Instagram feed, with an average viewership of 200k on Facebook. Secondly, a freestyle series, ‘Bars in Cars’, allowed me to develop an understanding into A&R, shoot co-ordination, video production and audio editing. Lastly, an idea that I pitched during my interview, ‘Therapy Sesh’, hit 1 million views on its first episode, and attracted talent such as Jason Derulo, Rae Sremmurd and Tory Lanez.

    Marketing, Communications and AdvertisingKingston University
     - London, United Kingdom
    In 2016, I graduated with a First Class degree in BSc Marketing, Communications and Advertising from Kingston University. My degree allowed me to work alongside a diverse set of characters and personalities to achieve shared objectives and meet multiple project deadlines. I was able to tailor my assignments to my passions, and completed pieces on the ethical issues in hip-hop, emotional appeals in arts advertising, and how online developments have affected brand-consumer communications in fashion.
