Event Marketing Manager
Visitor Operations Manager
I have recently been made redundant from my role as Senior Visitor Experience Officer, working for The National Trust. I gained a wide variety of skills in this role as I was based at a small property where I oversaw many different departments. This has equipped me with experience of sales techniques (both for membership and retail), people management skills (both of staff and volunteers), an awareness of health and safety through my role as duty manager, and a portfolio of creative work featuring house displays, interpretation and children's trails. In these uncertain times, I am looking for opportunities in any of the areas listed above, as well as writing, proofreading and research - of which I have previous experience.
I'm a globetrotter at heart, but also a skilled, professional marketer, with a 1st class honors degree in International Tourism Management.
My degree helped me to realise that marketing was the industry for me. Over my four years at university I studied three marketing modules, creating effective and engaging digital marketing and destination marketing strategies. They all equipped me with fantastic knowledge and an abundance of skill sets. In my final year, I produced a 6000-word Destination Marketing Strategy report on the city of Miami. I worked exceptionally hard on this and I was thrilled when I received the highest grade on the module.
During my placement year, I worked at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council as a Communications and Marketing Assistant. Throughout my time at BMBC I supported officers and managers with the delivery of marketing campaigns, email marketing, and producing high-quality content for traditional and digital platforms. I also had the chance to run my own campaigns and produce weekly news articles. I also assisted in the planning of events such as the Tour de Yorkshire.
For as long as I can remember I have been hooked on the idea of travel. I love exploring cities, laying on beaches, learning about cultures, and trying new cuisines. I made it my mission to visit 22 countries before I was 22 and did exactly that!

Leisure Marketing Executive
Dear whom it may concern,
I am writing in response to your advertisement, why I think I would be ideal for the role and make an excellent addition to the team.
Firstly, I have industry experience working in a small marketing team, designing and marketing for 4 major big companies including the world’s best prosthetic hand and a 5 star boutique hotel in central Leeds.
The tasks I undertake are creating content for social media, content for the websites and print work including brochures. In contrast my artwork is used for events, mail chimps (e-shots) and creating flipping books which is then put onto the websites. I had control over social media, I planned the posts in advance, as it gives me time to work on another project. In addition, I undertook admin work which includes using the phones and talking to clients or companies and reports.
In terms of marketing as a team you know what the vision is and our goals so our strategy is to fulfill that, for social media we come up with the marketing strategies but working closely with the CEO and so far we have hit and exceeded our targets.Before we put our strategy into practice, I carried out marketing research to ensure the strategies will work and any new mobile and social media strategies and updates in the apps e.g. live videos, videos in cover photos etc. I have pretty much covered it all and this is why I believe I would make a perfect addition to the team with the experience and knowledge I have which is what you are looking for in a employee but also others in the team can learn from my experience while I learn from them.
I have freshly graduated from York St John University in Design: Graphics in 2017 and would like to make the best use of the skills developed during my university study. I have a keen interest in Graphic Designing. In addition, I have also a small Graphic Design/Photography/Marketing business, to be able to use my skills too in the local community.
Over the past few years, I have become highly proficient in Adobe CS Suite on both Mac OSX and Windows. I am able to work under pressure to tight deadlines and ensure the work is produced at the highest level- and while juggling full-time study. In particular, I have extensive experience designing advertisements, marketing campaigns, posters, brand identify, t-shirt designs(fashion), leaflets, vehicle graphics, sign making and much more...
As you can see from my resume that I undertook a BTEC course in Travel & Tourism at college. I have a passion for tourism aswell as design/marketing. I have always wanted to combine the two together and I believe this role is my dream/perfect role to do just that.
I enjoy working in a creative team and have the ability to communicate with managers and colleagues alike as my referees can confirm.
As such, I believe I can make a significant contribution to your team. I would love to bring my complete portfolio to show you my work in an Interview and look forward to the opportunity to do so. I look forward to meeting you in person.
Kindly, contact me on the provided phone number (07585951372) or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Recently graduated from Leeds College of Music and a career in the entertainment industry is appealing. I have some experience in aspects of this role and the variety of the role interests me.
Leisure Marketing Executive
Dear Sir/Madam, I would like to apply for the role of Leisure Marketing Executive, currently being advertised on your website.
I have just graduated in BSc (Hons) Marketing at the University of York, with a First-Class Honours (with Distinction) degree classification. During study, I have developed an in-depth understanding of marketing practices and principles, including performing competitor analysis, researching and producing reports on target markets.
During 2017, I completed a summer internship with Art and Photography magazine, Aesthetica . As part of my role, I was responsible for developing creative content, writing copy for the magazine and online blogs, and managed the Italian client database, such as museums and galleries across Italy. My ability to speak Italian fluently was a real advantage during this process. Although my mother-tongue is Italian, I am also fluent in English and I can speak basic Spanish. I had the ability to build professional relationships and work collaboratively across organisations.
As someone who is extremely determined and hard-working, I successfully handled multiple projects within Aesthetica and additionally worked part-time within two hospitality roles. In doing this, I developed excellent time-management and organisational skills, with the ability to prioritise tasks effectively and maintain a high quality of work.
In addition to this, I have recently been awarded The York Management School Award for Highest Achieving Second and Final Year BSc Marketing student. I am extremely proud of this award and feel that it is testament to my commitment to Marketing.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
Leisure Marketing Executive
I have recently come to the end of my internship working for the Liberal Democrats. The communications aspects of the job were what I found most interesting. I want to couple the skills I learned in that role with work in the heritage sector, an area I have a strong interest in from my love of History. I would love the opportunity to work in York's vibrant tourist industry, built on the city's rich and varied past.
Below is a summary of the skills I developed while completing my degree:
Essay work ensured that I can write informative, analytical and engaging text to a high standard. Proof reading this work refined my eye for detail.
I demonstrated in 24- and 48-hour open exams that I can be highly productive and remain calm and focused under intense pressure in limited time constraints.
I was excellent at organising time and managing work load in preparation for seminars, essays and exams. This planning allowed me to work effectively on several projects simultaneously.
Throughout my degree, and particularly while completing my dissertation, I learnt how to research a variety of subjects effectively and quickly.
Working in groups to produce written pieces and presentations furthered my ability to plan, communicate, and operate as part of a strong team.
I am an enthusiastic and loyal individual with valuable experience working within the hospitality, customer services gamming and retail environments. I have excellent communication, influencing and interpersonal skills with a confident and outgoing personality. I have the ability to interact with people at all levels. I am able to lead and train staff members with a positive “can do” attitude. I have the ability to multitask and work in a busy, fast paced and dynamic environment. I can take initiative and deliver a practical approach to problem solving. I am passionate about customer service and the food and drinks industry. I am now in a position where I am ready to further progress my career in hospitality and to take on more responsibility and accountability. I am willing and determined to learn any new skills that can make me a worthy member of the team. I will meet any new challenges given me with energy and commitment. I am ambitious, hardworking and I wish to be given the opportunity to show my full potential

Events and Communications Officer
I have built my career so far across a range of project management and administration as well as internal communications experience in the educational, transport, not for profit and public sectors. Most recently, I have been working in training and events for higher education teaching providers. I am currently looking for permanent opportunities where I can build on my existing organisational, planning and project management skills. I am especially interested in opportunities in the marketing, communications and heritage sectors.
My name is Hamish Davison. I come from Bridlington but caught the travel bug early on. After graduating I looked at my options and decided to TEFL in Spain. This was originally to learn Spanish. I met my now fiancee online while in Spain, and uprooted my life once more and moved to the Netherlands. Her plan was to do a masters for a year somewhere abroad, and so I needed to find work which I could take with me. This is how I found Upwork. I have been freelancing very successfully on Upwork for the last 2 years now. At first, I was just doing content writing, but I soon discovered Moz, and have since mastered how to create my own briefs, keywords lists, keyword strategies, content strategies, as well as implementing them. I could only stay in California, where my fiancee chose eventually, for 3 months at a time so now I find myself back at home, thirsting for some work to get my teeth stuck into. My plan is to move to York as soon as I have a position, which I have the funds for.
