During my two years at Girardot my main responsibilities included taking briefs from clients, taking changes from clients and trafficking them through the designers, and generally handling the clients needs and expectations. I also liaised with media agencies and production houses; coordinating media schedules and supplying artwork both online (using various ad platforms) and offline. I created a daily WIP and managed the work load of the designers - prioritising campaigns, managing timing plans and budgets. I have also played a key role in the research and pitching of new business.
I worked for VIPR Digital for three months in the lead up to the launch of the FIXR App, as a marketing manager, PA and events co-coordinator. This gave me great exposure the the world of apps, and great hands-on experience in a tech start-up.
I did two weeks work experience at JWT in both the summer of 2011 and 2012. I worked alongside the account managers and got my first real exposure to the world of advertising.
