A passionate, reliable and hard-working professional. I have worked in both print and digital publications, and a television news programme, experiences which I believe have equipped me with an extremely broad skillset that can be transferred to a wide range of careers.
I began working at The Castle as a bar/floor staff and was quickly promoted to the position of Service Coach Leader, and later Supervisor. I was given extensive training on how to coach and inspire people to deliver outstanding customer service, how to be a great example for my team. I am used with working demanding and long shifts; in addition to being responsible for the team, my duties included organising workshops and seminars for the staff, and assisting with various events.
I was responsible for news writing, infographics research and pitching ideas for articles. I worked alongside the editor-in-chief and the assistant editor who also trusted me with blog posts. The internship taught me about the difficult process of setting up a magazine issue from scratch, and how important fine organisation and attention to details are.
My main responsibilities included writing copy for the website, editing and subediting articles, communicating with all journalists and photographers. In addition, I was in charge of all social media accounts.
I was responsible for the communication with freelance journalists, photographers and video makers, their schedules and assignments. Furthermore, I was liable for contacting PR companies and clients; negotiating press accreditations for all cultural events, and organising interviews and shoots. I worked alongside the editor-in-chief and assisted him with carrying out research tasks for future projects and improvements of the magazine.
I assisted with the organisation of University of Westminster culture festival. I was responsible for the development of social media, PR and scheduling issues.
I was mainly responsible for news research and social media. Also, I was trusted with organising the schedules for the whole crew and shooting arrangements. I worked in a busy environment, alongside a team of both TV professionals and students.
In association with the Red Cross I established and lead a weekly Creative Writing seminar for teenagers (14-18 years old) with the assistance of volunteers from the American Peace Corps.
