I have also been asked to assist in the design of posters, certificates and press related paraphernalia for GBGB events and conferences.

I designed the poster for the Retired Greyhound Trust Charity Golf Tournament, as well as the Veterinary CPD certificate.

2014

Assistant Producer

The Writer's Avenue

Feb 2014 - May 2014
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Internship
  • As well as assisting and facilitating workshops, auditions and productions my role was also administrative: keeping the actor’s database up to date, manning the company email addresses and assisting with social media and marketing strategies. In regards to a marketing campaign I helped to implement I was integral to the creation of the Bronze, Silver and Gold membership levels for Writer’s Avenue creatives. I saw the conception and deployment of the scheme, helping to implement the incentivastion of the membership. Each membership had different features and benefits for actors, for example a Gold Member would pay a £30 annual subscription and be a “VIP” creative who received feedback on their auditions and would be the first person to find out about upcoming auditions and industry related news. This type of marketing is an example of B2C marketing, persuading actors, writers and creatives to be part of the company, part of the brand.

2016

Oct 2013 - Jan 2016
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Having worked in retail for two years at The Body Shop’s flagship store it was part of my role as Customer Consultant (CC) and Competitor Analysist to have a strong understanding of brand identity. As a CC I was a brand ambassador for the company and it was my role not only to sell the products but to promote founder Anita Roddick’s brand ethos: to support community Fairtrade; activate self-esteem; protect the planet; defend human rights and be against animal testing. The way in which I promoted such was to engage customer’s in conversation about the products themselves and their key benefits, features and stories regarding the 26 Fair Trade suppliers and initiatives they work with in over 21 different countries. Furthermore, it was also my role as Competitor Analysist to complete monthly Competitor Analysis sheets on rival brand’s products and to report back to the manager of our store. This role required me to work independently to research and test competitor products, comparing the product themselves, the packaging and the brand identities. My manager also saw my keen interest in progressing beyond a sales role and I was asked upon several occasions to write product reviews/blogs in which I had to test out new products prior to their launch in store. My blogs were published on The Body Shop InTouch system as well as sent internally to the Head Office and management teams, in which I received praise for my product knowledge and writing skill from Head of Retail Academy Tammy Baker.
