I am a highly professional and reliable communications specialist, based in Richmond, Melbourne.
I have a wealth of experience in admin and marketing assistant roles where I have developed strong knowledge of the Microsoft Office suits, online software and social media management.
I currently work part-time in a marketing assistant role in Richmond and I’m looking to find a second part time role in a similar industry where I can best utilise my skills. I studied Media and Communications and graduated with a distinction average from Deakin University.
My experience in the marketing and communications industry comes from my past roles and internships. My most recent role was in London working as part of the media team at Heathrow Airport, the host airport for the London 2012 Olympic Games. In this fast-paced, high pressure role I worked closely with the press office and internal communications divisions, assisting the global media with their enquiries, facilitating live recording, interviews and supervising the filming of athletes arriving and departing. I drafted press releases, monitored social media and informed visiting journalists about the latest Olympic updates. I was also a translator for any Spanish and French speaking media teams.
I created and managed the online marketing and social media strategy, e-newsletters and flyers for The Craft Beer Social Club while I was living in London. This involved researching industry news, writing blogs and press releases and sending them out to relevant media figures and subscribers. I also managed the database, responded to queries and attended all events as a photographer.
I am proficient in the full Microsoft Office suite, Mac and PC software, new and social media and a number of editing and design programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, InDesign, as well as the website publishing systems Wordpress, Hootsuite and Joomla.
My past employers can speak for to my excellent communication skills, keen initiative and leadership qualities, eye for detail, curiosity and ability to adapt quickly along with my determination and dedication. I am a passionate and curious person who thrives in challenging environments.
