My strengths as a digital editor were mentoring junior members of staff, to ensure a smooth running digital desk, as well as having an eye for the best imagery and stories the Brides reader enjoys (and clicks on) most. One of my biggest achievements was achieving successful site and social views and reach, with only a team of two. I also helped sell out tickets to a Brides event with a successful push across all digital channels.
