Marketing Assistant

Drive Productions

May 2014 - Sep 2014
  • Drive Productions are a renowned global creative agency who work with major clients like Havas, Saatchi & Saatchi and Ferrari. I worked alongside the Group Marketing Manager to ensure that all of Drive Productions’ marketing assets and communications were properly maintained and managed. Excellent communication and written skills were needed due to the constant demand of drafting press releases and repurposing press materials for all social channels. Further to this I produced in-depth research into the advertising industry and wrote weekly reports to inform Drive of new trends, opportunities and threats within the company’s environment. This role enabled me to gain valuable knowledge of the day-to-day running of the marketing department and acquire essential marketing techniques to develop an overall marketing strategy.

  • Louche is a renowned club night and music label based in Leeds, London and Berlin, which I promoted on social media. Each month I consistently broke the sales target and created a contact list which contributed around £1000 to each event. This achievement was rewarded with the opportunity to run my own team of promoters, and gain a larger commission from the tickets sold.
