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 strive to push myself in a wide variety of activities which have allowed me to acquire
many varied skills. I have gained a vast amount of experience working as a recruitment
coordinator for a company that hired a large amount of seasonal staff. This required me to
create new ways of promoting job vacancies (for example brand ambassadors and social
media advertising) and of keeping their talent pool engaged and interested in various up
and coming opportunities. I also aided in creating and maintaining their Applicant Tracking
I understand the need to fulfil deadlines and also the need to keep adapting and
developing materials so that the client receives the best end result. In my role as
Activities Manager I gained a large amount of experience in how to manage clients and
stakeholders’ expectations and deliver their desired outcomes. Within this role I also
worked within a budget, booking attractions and selling clients extras to further enjoy
their time with us.
I have also been a residential musician in venues throughout the north, allowing me to
gain experience in performing and hosting events. This would require me to promote my
events on social media and through other forms of marketing, such as flying and busking. I
would describe myself as energetic, passionate and driven, and would love the opportunity
to show this within your organisation.
