About me

I'm a confident and enthusiastic self-starter who has taken a Dance degree and a passion for writing and turned it into a career. I have experience writing across lifestyle, showbiz, news, theatre, fashion, beauty and entertainment and constantly have my finger on the pop culture pulse. In my spare hours I enjoy blogging about lovely London and the wonderful hidden corners it has.

Work history

Currently

Online Content Editor

Global Radio Services

Aug 2016
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I am part of the online team at Heart (heart.co.uk). I pitch stories to my editor each day - a range of features and breaking news - which I believe would make great content for the Heart website and in keeping with the brand on air. I also pitch and create video content that would make great shareable material for social media and generate a new audience for the site and social platforms. Keeping tabs on KPI's and targets is integral to the role but also general site maintenance such as SEO and regularly updating sections and the homepage of the website. I use Adobe Photoshop and Premier Pro each day to help create shareable and relatable content for the Heart audience.

Marketing, Communications and Development Work Placement

Dance Umbrella

Sep 2014 - Nov 2014
  • Internship
  • My role at Dance Umbrella gave me a 'thrown in the deep end' introduction to the world of arts marketing and I learn more in this 3 month period than I perhaps might have elsewhere for this period of time due to the fast moving, on site nature of a festival. I assisted on the promotion and branding of the festival as well as assisting with fundraising for its commission fund through just giving campaigns and assisting the organsisation of developmental events. During the festival my responsibilities were vast both within the office environment and across all 14 festival sites which ranged from Alexandra Palace to the Barbican Centre.I was responsible for maintaining a social media presence throughout the festival by scheduling tweets and planning a social media strategy for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as well as writing the copy for weekly E-Newsletters updating subscribers on the festival.. I also assisted with front of house branding at the various venues we visited throughout the festival as well as many ticketing responsibilities. I monitored sales and ran the box office, allocating press seats and making sure the press desk ran smoothly on nights where the tickets were ran by the DU team. I was also responsible for monitoring press coverage of the festival for use in future marketing campaigns and for archival purposes.
