I did work experience for a year after my A-Levels as I wasn't sure what I wanted to do as a job. During this time I found out more about PR and communication and decided to pursue this as a career and go to University. I was a volunteer for my local radio station's charity phone line as well as doing an unpaid placement at Warner Music
PR Executive, Polygon Marketing Solutions
I looked after PR for various clients including motorsport teams and championships, new homes builders, solicitors. I ran corporate events and looked after buying space in newspaper and time on the radio for advertising.
Senior Internal Communication Officer, Thames Valley Police
Internal communication is responsible for taking lots of information and being able to break it down in to meaningful chunks of text, video, posters etc to get across your message.
I worked with a great team and loved going to work.
This job taught me a lot of things, including trying to remain calm under pressure and multi-tasking or juggling lots of separate projects/customers.
