Event Marketing Manager
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.

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.
