Editor/Culture Officer/Content Creator
I am an extremely motivated, personable, and proactive individual, having built up a strong portfolio of varied skills, which allow me to work effectively, efficiently, and collaboratively in a multitude of settings. Having graduated from the University of Edinburgh in July 2019, I am currently seeking employment in a role in which I can advance humanitarian, environmental, and feminist causes, while developing my professional skills. I am excited by a wide range of roles, including charitable advancement, editing and content creation (magazine/literary), and roles in which I can use my languages (French and Spanish). I aim to have a high level of responsibility and am interested in global education on topics such as sustainability.
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 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.
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.
