About me

I finished my MA in English Literature early this year, honing my writing, editing and research skills. My current role as marketing assistant allows me to utilise these skills, as I produce content for internal communications, conduct marketing research and create event invitations. Moreover, I liaise with clients and stakeholders to organise and schedule events, specifically for PRCA and Women in Film and TV. This demonstrates my ability to effectively negotiate diverse and often conflicting organisational needs, while keeping to the strict specifications of clients. Additionally, for this role I had to build relationships both internally and externally, as I also manage internal meetings for executives. I have editing and proofreading experience from time spent as an editor at my university's newspaper. I was additionally in Berlin for two months researching, writing and editing a travel guide. I have also completed a CELTA qualification, with experience in editing students' English and improving their verbal and written language skills, highlighting the high quality of my own verbal and written skills. Having been a freelance writer for several years, I have excellent copywriting skills, both for online and offline publications, for which I have an adaptable writing style to suit the tone of any particular publication. I have managed various social media accounts, using SEO and becoming familiar with multiple website formats, exemplifying my IT competence. I also manage my own WordPress blog, covering travel, reviews, and creative works, since it permits me the chance to fully express my creativity. While studying for my masters, I was a part-time teaching assistant, supporting learners with learning difficulties, illustrating my proficiency at dealing with multiple deadlines simultaneously. I am enthusiastic and passionate about producing exceptional work, with a keen eye for detail, further evidenced in my work experience at The Times and the Bristol Post. I am flexible, independent, and work well within a team. I am proactive in my career progression and am eager to learn and expand my skill set.
