This entails dealing with queries under the MHRA, creating and controlling the web content and social media, liaising with business consultants, dealing with customer queries via email and phone calls and tending to the Marketing Manager’s needs (whether creating presentations, organising promotional events or logging sales administration.) My employer sent me to Athens in Greece to independently work alongside the owners of the skin camouflage foundation Covermark and learn all aspects of the product. I came back to the UK and held numerous speeches for the British Association of Skin Camouflage regarding the devise, generating more sales and awareness of Covermark in this country. Alongside my Marketing Assistant role, I also had the responsibility of being the office administrator. Answering all telephone enquiries, dealing with payments and invoices, stock checking and generally being the face of the company helped me understand all aspects of the business management.
