I am a social media account manager for restaurants looking for my next step in the social media world!
As Social Media Account Manager my role comprises of content creation and strategy, community management, campaign management, PPC, analytics and reporting and helping on new business pitches. I work closely with the PR and Marketing teams to develop and implement Social Media strategy dovetailing the PR plan. Being part of a small agency focusing on food, restaurants, hotels and lifestyle brands has enabled me to liaise directly with clients and build great working relationships.
As a sampling and administrations assistant at a luxury fabric brand my main role was management of the samples department. This meant processing customer orders, creating sample cards by hand, sewing large sample pieces and recommending fabric samples based on client briefs. I also helped introduce the team to social media platforms and helped curate and implement a warehouse sale which sold out in 3 days.
Shadowing a Social Media expert I built the foundation to my social media career. Working closely with a PR agency to dovetail their PR plan I was taught how to manage social media accounts for restaurants and implement brand awareness across social media channels. Working with Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram I created engaging content, responded to customer service based queries, planned online strategies and reported directly to the client.
Originally studying BA (hons) Graphic Design for two years I was able to use the skills developed to transfer on to a fashion and interiors textiles course. Textile print for fashion and interiors provided me with much more creative freedom and applied artistic development. During this course I designed my own fashion print collections whilst also becoming a highly skilled screen and digital printer. Focusing on digital print designs I grew my skills with photography and Photoshop editing. I developed a love for trend forecasting, prediction and online communications. Upon course completion I took part in the graduate showcase 'New Designers' at the Business Design Centre in Islington.
