Work history

Currently

Editorial Assistant

European Parliament

Oct 2016
  • Brussels, Belgium
  • Internship
  • I am currently doing a stage working in the Publication Management and Editing Unit in DG EPRS at the European Parliament. EPRS is the EP's dedicated in-house think tank and I have been able to experience a wealth of different areas of work in my short time here. Strictly speaking my role involves writing blog posts for the EuroParl website, producing social media content and proof-reading or writing documents for the Parliament, however the EP places a great amount of importance on trainees experiencing a multitude of different aspects of Parliament life and actively encourages trainees to engage in cross-unit activities, meaning I have been given ample opportunity to experience other parts of Parliament life. This has included helping to organise and engage in conferences on a variety of topics among a good deal of other things.

Journalist

Mancunian Matters

Feb 2016 - Jul 2016
  • Manchester, UK
  • Full Time
  • I worked at Mancunian Matters as a reporter/journalist/features writer while I completed my NCTJ qualification. The role allowed me a lot of flexibility and allowed me to get involved in various types of media and cover numerous different types of stories. I, personally, have always been drawn to cultural journalism and this role allowed me to engage in that freely, however it also encouraged me to cover more conventional news journalism and feature writing - two aspects of the job that I enjoyed a lot.
