I have just returned from an incredible trip across the USA, Canada and Mexico and am looking forward to jumping back into the workforce. Since leaving at the beginning of the year I have had some amazing and surreal experiences and feel like this has been a valuable period creatively. Previously I spent four years working in digital publishing. During this time I developed and executed social media strategies for the Arts Council England, Dazed Media and It’s Nice That. I also have extensive copywriting, programming and pitching experience from my time as Content Manager at Channel 4, Content Coordinator and Social Media Editor at NOWNESS and various freelance projects. A few career highlights include doubling the social media traffic during my time as Social Media Editor at NOWNESS, delivering successful marketing campaigns for Nike and Topshop and my personal favourite… receiving a cease and desist letter from Beyoncé.
Freelance copywriter for a graphic design company.
During this period I managed the relaunch of the Random Acts’ digital identity. I was responsible for programming, scheduling and promoting all film releases and developing the tone of voice and social media strategy behind the strand. Alongside this, my role involved advancing relationships with Channel 4 partners, in house teams, film festivals, press collaborations and completing all necessary project management tasks.
I was responsible for the strategy, programming, copy writing, image selection and general output across all social media platforms. Other duties included monitoring real time traffic and longer term analytics, securing and pitching exclusive video content for the site, programming and curating the highly successful NOWNESS Picks side of the website, writing copy and training interns.
I was responsible for devising and delivering marketing schedules to the Creative Content Director for branded projects and securing press coverage for stories. I also provided daily editorial and social media assistance to the team.
