I regularly write articles for a recently launched online student magazine called Student Wire. Feel free to read my posts here.
I spent two weeks at Dinosaur PR, a specialist online agency in Leeds. Whilst I was here I helped out by writing blogs, news releases and seeding/promoting competitions. I worked for clients such as Audio Technica and Dukes Hotel.

I completed a two week placement at a public relations agency just outside of Leeds called MCG PR. During my time here I was involved in a variety of different PR activities including research, writing blogs, product bulletins and press releases, drafting copy for social media and organising samples. I worked for clients such as Weight Watchers and Vimto.

Twice I have completed one week placements in the promotions and marketing office at Rochdale Town Centre Management. In my time here I have gained valuable PR experience by writing newsletters and press releases and contributing in events management tasks.

Sales assistant at H&M
I worked at H&M for 15 months and in my time I gained valuable skills that are essential for working in communications. I would talk to the public face to face and on the telephone daily. I also gained an understanding of what it is like to work in a fast paced, busy environment.
