About me


I am a graduate from Brunel University (B.A. Film (Hons.)), and I have had experience in social media, events and administration roles in varied working environments. I have most recently worked as a Social Media and Events Coordinator at Mise en Place, based in the Cayman Islands. There I was responsible for three social media accounts, website maintenance, and coordinating numerous events within the private catering industry. In regards to social media, I was involved in content creation for websites and various social media platforms, weekly newsletters to our subscribers, and reviewed and analysed various content to provide strategies to optimise social media impact. The position also involved in the coordination of large dinners, corporate events, and weddings. This involved liaising with clients frequently to ascertain event requirements, producing detailed quotes and proposals, as well as agreeing and handling their budgets. I was also responsible for the organising of equipment hire, staffing for each event, and checking room layout. Before leaving the UK, I was employed as a Marketing Coordinator for Giuseppe’s Restaurant (Worthing), where I was responsible for managing the main social media channels, and maintaining a close relationship with our client database through compiling monthly newsletters and promotions. I also worked closely with management to increase the restaurant’s revenue through various online marketing and social media strategies, and also building relationships with other local businesses to boost business profile. Lastly, I have also worked as a Social Media Coordinator at BozBoz (Brighton), where I was responsible for multiple social media accounts within the festival and events industry. Through this position I was involved in content creation for websites and various social media platforms, ideas for artwork design, and social media strategy for the build-up to launches and festival dates. Some of the accounts I worked on were Brighton Music Conference, Shakedown Festival, Love Supreme Festival, and Sundown Festival. I have worked on various CMS for clients, such as Joomla, and used tracking engines such as Google Analytics and CrowdBooster to monitor social media performance for client reports. I am interested in a position which would allow me to contribute my experience, enthusiasm and passion for social media and events, as well as my inter-personal and organisational skills. I am therefore particularly interested in companies who's approach is established, innovative, and unique. I feel confident that within an inspiring working environment, my experience, drive for new ideas, and understanding of producing engaging content will fit well. With a bubbly and positive personality, I am most comfortable in roles that are varied, people orientated, and fast paced.
