Tell us a bit more about your career progression within Whiteoaks.
I began as a Campaign Executive when I initially joined Whiteoaks, which included responsibilities such as social media monitoring and posting, campaign reporting and content proofing. After almost a year in the role, an opportunity came up to join the content team. I applied for it and was successful! Since September 2020 I’ve written content for a range of our clients across sectors such as retail, broadcast and emerging technologies as a Specialist Content Writer.
How did you get into PR?
Although my work background is primarily in marketing and project coordination after previously completing a marketing-focused business management degree, I’ve always been interested in the media and was impressed by Whiteoaks when applying to work here.
What’s been the highlight of your Whiteoaks career so far?
Probably making the successful switch to Specialist Content Writer. It was a big shift in my day-to-day responsibilities but I’m delighted that I’ve received good feedback internally and from clients on the quality of my written pieces.
What makes you smile at the end of the day?
Knowing that the words I put to paper are being published and read by professionals in a range of sectors.
When I’m not PRing I like to…
Attend football matches and concerts in pre-Covid times, but during the last year watching matches on TV and building my vinyl collection.
