          1E

          Apr 2019
          • London, United Kingdom
          • Full Time
          • Working in the broader marketing team, I work to produce high-quality digital collateral. One of my main tasks during my time at 1E has been producing content for the website refresh. This saw me use my skills to create industry-standard video content that will be seen by returning and potential new clients. During this time, I took on new responsibilities such as directing various parties, coordinating between different departments, the delegation of tasks and quality assurance. Recently, I have been working independently on planning future video content to be used as a marketing push for the new brand messaging. This has seen me researching competitors and other B2B companies, analysing the style of video they are creating and why it works. From here, I created a document that describes how 1E should respond. This document outlines what future video content could be, highlighting the importance of style, editing and overall tone for my vision of video content at 1E. Once finalised, this document will be presented to higher management for consideration. My time at 1E has given me an understanding of marketing trends, finding ways in which to utilise and align with these to create engaging and relevant video content with a detailed plan and strategy.
