    Digital Content SpecialistBS&T Digital
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    I joined the team at BS&T Digital Ltd as the Digital Content Specialist to work solely for the world's leading guided touring company, Trafalgar and its sister brand, Costsaver. In this role, I was responsible for assisting with the development of Trafalgar’s global content strategy with a focus on all facets of digital content. I produced all written and visual content across a range of owned channels (primarily website, blog, CRM, email and social, as well as digital PR outreach) while also producing the brand guidelines for both Trafalgar and Costsaver. Working beside the CMO, Head of Digital Marketing and Content Director, I ensured the visual identity of Trafalgar's digital properties was of the highest standard and always in line with Trafalgar's global content guidelines. Throughout my tenure, I also managed major digital content projects and maintained a roadmap of scheduled content updates to ensure relevance and impact. Testing placement and types of content across the site to determine and implement best-performing solutions was a regular undertaking, whilst also spearheading regular content reviews to establish opportunities for improvement. Working closely with the Content Editors and regional marketing teams, I supported their local programmes and initiatives through the creation of attractive and engaging landing pages, as well as producing new, interesting and appealing ideas for content across all digital channels.
