I am mainly involved with the stores customer service but during my time I have learnt a great deal about communication skills, visual merchandising, garment control and the Topshop brand itself.
For the majority of my time I worked as a Health Records Admin Assistant, this involved filing, answering the telephone, assisting members of staff from all over the hospital to retrieve medical notes and carrying out audits. I regularly helped other departments with general admin when needed including typing and booking appointments
When I moved to High Wycombe for University I briefly transferred to Wycombe General Hospital working on the reception for Main Outpatients and the Haematology department. This included general admin and office duties, booking appointments and queue management.
Some of my modules at university include Digital Marketing, Marketing Communications, Consumer Brand Relationship and Campaign Planning. My degree regularly has lectures from industry professionals and opportunities to have important client and agency meetings. Most recently I was involved in a live brief presentation for Mediacom and Universal Studios. The task included developing a media and campaign strategy for the DVD release of Zoolander 2. I recently completed dissertation, on the subject of branding between high street and luxury fashion brands. It was titled: Fashion Branding: A Study into what Impacts the Value of a Fashion Brand
Through this course I was taught; contextual studies into the history of art and fashion, tailoring, pattern cutting and computer aided design. My main interests from this course involved Computer aided design, which lead me to develop a 40-page glossy magazine using InDesign and Photoshop. This conceptual magazine devised of my own photography, articles, interviews and design.
