I am a young professional and recent graduate from the University of Oxford, with passions for film, fashion and digital marketing. I am currently relocating to London and am looking for a new position in Digital Marketing or Social Media, where I can use my creative passion with my commercial mind to problem solve and challenge myself. At the moment, I am an Account Manager at etailPR and personally manage over 30 fashion, beauty and lifestyle accounts with campaigns that have given me a base knowledge of a lot of digital marketing sectors. I am looking for a role that I can get my teeth into strategy, problem solving, and really launch my career in digital.

I interned here for 3 months before becoming a Marketing Executive and after finishing my Masters became a full-time Account Manager. I currently manage over 30 client’s digital campaigns. ? I single handedly launched a brand new Web Application that was designed specifically for etailPR and the influencer and blogger network. This included: o Creating the web application alongside digital architects to run through an API from Post Affiliate Pro software. o Testing this platform through development sites o Planning an internal technical soft launch o Planning an external communications and promotions hard launch ? Since joining the company has increased their brands to include these accounts including Schwarzkopf, New Look, Molton Brown, Forever Unique, Motel, AX Paris, Elle Sport, and Hot!Mess.
Whilst at the University of Oxford I co-founded a small theatre company. We successfully bid for our first show, The Secret Life of Albert Nobbs, which showed at the Burton Taylor Studio Theatre in Oxford in March 2015 as part of International Women’s Day. ? I was in charge of applying for all funding, controlling the budget, production costs and operations as well as all marketing for the show. ? By our third night we had broken even and thus by the end of the run we were in profit. All of the £250 profit went to Women’s Aid.
? I managed conferences and corporate events, preparing for the event and acting as the point of call for all communications surrounding the event. ? I wrote pre-event policy and plans and post-event communications bulletins which were circulated on the website and through email. ? I wrote a social media strategy for the Foundations’ Twitter and Facebook. ? For one of these events I also produced and directed a Thank You video, with professional crew, which was shown to corporate donors.
St Patrick’s Hall Committee was an elected group of students who coordinated and managed ‘Hall’s life’ for the residents. This included event preparation and organisation, community outreach and funding activities. My role as secretary was extended to help out and eventually take over the Tresurer and Community roles, which resulted in me being awarded a Highly Commended certificate at the Student Community Awards by the Vice Chancellor. On a basic level my role was to keep track of all JCR activity, complete admin work, take minutes at meetings and support the treasurer. I also personally set up a relationship with Hexham Community Centre in Reading where residents of St Patricks Hall, myself and other JCR members volunteered. Subsequently, our JCR won, ‘JCR Community Service of the Year’ and I was awarded the Highly Commended certificate at the Student Community Awards.
I left Topshop having reached the top-level or supervisory competency. I was the youngest in my store to have ever completed this, before heading off to university. ? I was till trained, ran the shop floor, coached and trained members of staff, processed delivery and used stock, intake and profit tools in order to maximise sales and work on visual merchandising in my department. ? In my final year I was nominated for the Arcadia 'Individual Pride of the Year' Award.
I was awarded the prize for the highest mark in my Undergraduate degree after receiving a 90 on my final essay piece.
