I have strong experience working in Communications, Media and PR since graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor of English degree.I have worked at OneShift for the past 8 months, and prior to this I was a Press Officer for 3 years at the UK‘s National Health Service (NHS).I am a people-person by nature, incredibly personable, and have strong communication, verbal and written skills. I am used to working under pressure, multitasking, and easily adapt to new IT systems and databases.At University I juggled part-time employment, volunteering, peer mentoring and organising charity fundraising events; this taught me to be incredibly organised, to be innovative and use my initiative and work quickly in high-energy, fast-paced environments.I have a wide scope of media experience from liaising with national and regional health journalists in my latest job, to being a weekly reviewer for The Mancunion newspaper (a readership of 50,000). I have completed various PR and journalism internships; at 'The LeedsGuide' magazine I was an Editorial Assistant, at Havas PR I was able to develop my communication, editorial and networking abilities - this led to freelance work as a PR Officer.
