Public Relations Manager
Leisure / Travel
I am a hard-working and conscientious communications professional with a background in journalism, PR and marketing, spanning over a decade. I am able to communicate and influence at all levels in both written and spoken forms.
I am skilled in PR including strategy development and delivery of the plans, social media, internal communications, crisis communications, corporate social responsibility as well as SEO, marketing, and event management.
I have managed PR campaigns that involved working closely with agencies, journalists and senior colleagues. Such events included broadcast days, TV interviews, live radio interviews or casual conversations with journalists. These would range from local to national publications or broadcasters.
I have also lead PR campaigns that gained excellent online coverage, which newspaper groups shared on their Facebook channels, creating further engagement.
Throughout my time in these roles, I made the direct contact with journalists and other agencies, enabling me to build confidence and strong relationships with key contacts.
I enjoy writing and proofreading, which I use to my benefit when I write SEO friendly content for our websites to when I wrote the Corporate Social Responsibility Reports as part of the company's Annual Report. There's work is extensive and there is no time for errors.
I currently use HootSuite to schedule Facebook, Twitter and instagram posts. Other times, I may react quickly to a social media trend, by creating ad-hoc posts. To help with scheduling, I put together an extensive calendar with events that we can use to post on the back of, to help to create further engagement.
I have a BA (hons) degree in Politics and Communications, a PgDip in Broadcast Journalism and have completed a CIM Certificate in Marketing.
Guided in all I do by a strong morale framework, I am driven by achieving things the right way, not just the easiest way.
