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.
Whatever is going...
I am a very outgoing, self-driven person, who is able to work efficiently as part of a team as well as independently. I would consider myself to be a reliable and punctual individual who uses initiative to meet and resolve challenges. Although been a quick worker, I strive to finish all my challenges to a very pleasing standard. I am keen to work in this sector of the job industry as I feel I meet the essential criteria needed to fulfill this role to a high standard. Additionally as an Army Cadet for a prolonged period of time this built up my confidence a lot, especially being with people you’ve never met and having to adapt to them and your surroundings quickly was very positive. I was often with small groups and sometimes in charge of the said small groups in the field, furthermore there was ALWAYS an emphasis on teamwork in the Army Cadet Force.
I pride myself on both my organisational skills and unrelenting self-motivation. I believe my combined academic credentials and work experience are evidence of this. I have a strong skill set, developed through years of industry experience and I thoroughly enjoy both the challenge and excitement of developing new skills and learning new traits. I am a confident, punctual and approachable professional, and believe I would be a great asset to any team.
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.
