About me

My name is Candice and I am a Digital PR Executive who is now looking for a new opportunity within the beauty industry. I have previous experience working on some of the biggest brands on the high street including Eastpak, Daisy Jewellery, Philips, Elemis and Beyond Retro.

I am brand and industry aware and can understand a potential news story within the lifestyle and consumer industry. I can multi-task with ease and meet vital deadlines. I am digitally savvy and have experience working with content and social teams to fully integrate an online campaign. I have honed the art of writing the perfect release for consumer and B2B audiences whilst assisting with copywriting and proofreading. I possess excellent communication skills both in person and in writing and rely on my editorial experience to create attention grabbing press releases. More importantly, I am a hard worker who can hit the ground running and is used to working in a busy PR office and thrives on new challenges.
