    • Full Time
    • • My main duties at Splendid included day to day account handling of a range of clients, content and social media management, creative direction and project management. • I headed up the content calendar creation for four clients; Greggs, Wilkinson Sword, Redchurch Brewery and Big Yellow Self Storage, as well as Splendid’s own marketing channels. I managed the process through from brainstorming/ideation, to drafting copy, writing creative briefs, briefing photographers/designers, managing internal reviews, managing client reviews, publishing, liaising with paid media agencies, and community management. I directly managed a team of two – an Account Executive and a Junior Account Executive, as well as the creative team – a Photographer and a Designer. • I was the agency as the ‘go-to’ person when a member of staff needs research help, particularly for new business pitches. In my first week at Splendid, I organised and ran a social media trend forecasting presentation for the senior departments across Barclays UK, Barclaycard and Barclays Business. • My biggest success story at Splendid is account managing the Vegan Sausage Roll video campaign, which achieved blanket media coverage and smashed all KPIs.
