I represented the mavis social media platforms across Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest and used Hootsuite to schedule content. Completed weekly research of trends, news articles, events, new business and competition. Used Google Analytics to monitor all website / social media activity and produced monthly analytical spreadsheets to report findings. Also worked on creative briefs from start to placement of candidates, across both freelance and permanent roles. Responsibilities included; constructing job advertisements and write-ups for candidates; conducting searches; catching up with candidates and brainstorming with the team.
Gained a Level 2 NVQ Healthcare Advisor qualiﬁcation, covering aspects of customer care in healthcare and the selling of different medication. Provided clear and accurate healthcare advice through concentrated conversations, recommending relevant products to aid the health and wellbeing of customers. Answered phone calls, dealt with customer queries and performed general shop ﬂoor responsibilities under tight pressure.
I fulfilled a waitressing role and assisted customers with high standard hospitality. I greatly improved my communicational skills through customer interaction (e.g. on till, tea-bar) and made sure to keep a safe and clean environment suitable to restaurant standards. Also performed food preparation and cooking/baking tasks.
During my apprenticeship, I worked towards a City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Digital Marketing. I covered topics including the principles of social media marketing, keywords and optimisation, e-mail marketing, collaborative technologies, CMS, metrics and analytics, SEO, PPC, content marketing and project management.
During my foundation year I gained a lot of experience within the subject of Media. I was able to develop my photography, camera and film knowledge whilst also practising in animation and sound design, which were completely new areas to me.
