2017

Music Editor

The Idle Man

Jul 2016 - Mar 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I was responsible for: liaising with PR firms, interviewing artists, commissioning mixes, creating content for the Style Guide in an SEO-friendly manner, updating images, sub-editing pieces from freelance contributors and pitching new artists and editorial content. Being thrown into a reactive and fast-paced environment taught me a lot about working in a creative team. I am able to plan ahead but also prioritise and work reactively. I work very well with multiple deadlines. Communication is a key strength for me, I am very approachable and always make the effort to build relationships within all areas of the business.

2015

Journalism Intern

Schön! Magazine

Sep 2015 - Dec 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Internship
  • I was responsible for researching and creating content for a luxury publication which enhanced my creativity and understanding of this type of market. Editing, proofreading, liaising with PR teams and attending events as a representative of the magazine as well as approaching creatives further developed my interpersonal skills and taught me the meaning of professionalism.

2015

2015

Style Editor

CUB Magazine

Aug 2014 - Jul 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Responsible for creating content for both print and online, writing articles, researching trends, proofreading, fact checking and editing both the works of contributors and fellow Style editors. Also responsible for distribution of the magazine across the student body and through various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and events. All the above tasks were carried out in steady communication with the editor-in-chief, all the relevant section editors and the creative director. This role enabled me to deal with other people’s writing and opinions which I perceive as being as an extension of the author and therefore need to be respected. It was of the foremost importance for me to discuss editorial changes with our contributors before publication in a way that they could enhance their writing skills. This position gave me the chance to develop the abilities I was interested in while being directly involved with the Student’s Union and our community.

2014

This role gave me the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in an industry that is usually foreclosed to non-fashion students. Here I gained concrete insight of what it means to work in a creative office therefore strengthening my administrative skills.
