As seen from my resume, much of my experience has been grassroots-based. Perhaps my most relevant and professional experience is as a founding member of New Street Records, which is a student-run business. Currently I am the Head of Digital Marketing, and since our inception in February 2015, we have secured media coverage from Birmingham Mail and BBC West Midlands as well as other publications. I was responsible for establishing an effective marketing campaign for its launch and growth, largely using social media and online channels, as well as overseeing the recent expansion to Manchester. As a result, I have a strong foundation and understanding of modern low-budget marketing techniques, as well as experience in branding businesses. I developed my team-working and leadership skills here by delegating and overseeing projects to team members to ensure that the business were constantly engaging with consumers.
Concurrently, I have helped out at ValeFest for three years from 2015-2017. This meant that I helped raise around £100,000 for various charitable causes. ValeFest is Europe's largest student-run charity festival, and has a capacity of 5500 which we sell out every year. At ValeFest, I had a number of varied roles, including social media management, content creation, branding, and general troubleshooting - as well as event management.
Outside of the working world, I see myself as a rather well-rounded individual. I enjoy design work, particularly in videography and design through Adobe Suite, and basic coding languages with an eventual focus on . I enjoy keeping up with cutting-edge technology, design and sustainability related features.
