Working as a marketing assistant, I am responsible for developing creative solutions to promote the company. My job is varied, and can range from attending a trade show to represent the company, to editing together a promotional video using Final Cut Pro. I am responsible for producing content for and maintaining the company blog. A monthly newsletter is created and sent out by me, and I monitor web analytics & email analytics to ensure that our company approach is successful.
This work placement enabled me to gather experience in the events and promotions department of a Newspaper. I arranged 2 print competitions for the newspaper and worked with the design department to create a final design. The competitions required me to find prizes from local businesses, and so I spoke face to face with many local companies to arrange prizes to be given away. The other side of this placement focussed on working in the Newsroom. I went out on visits with the Photographers to gather stories to be written up for print. I found meeting people, and gathering information for an article, highly rewarding.
My time here was dedicated to learning more about the local music scene, creating connections and booking lineups for local venues. Passionate about music, and enthusiastic about learning more about event organisation, I thrived in this role and enjoyed my time there.
