Between my NCTJ studies, I work 1-2 Sundays per month on the Daily Mail's features and comment desk. This entails commissioning writers, researching stories and pitching feature ideas.
I have regularly contributed local news stories and features for South West Londoner throughout my NCTJ studies. One piece was picked up as a page lead in the Daily Express and featured on both the MailOnline and MirrorOnline.
While studying towards my NCTJ qualification, I undertake a weekly placement on the Daily Mirror's newsdesk. This has entailed covering a headteacher's protest, Princess Eugenie's wedding as well as researching and quickly turning around copy.
