“I feel like I have always been a creative, visual person and I love that my role allows me to do this.”

Tell us about your role!

My role is to support marketing activity primarily across the learning and skills team within Shaw Trust through the creation of media content. This includes filming at sites, events, creating video productions, posters, brochures, and a variety of social media content including reels and stories for promotion of courses.

What were you doing before you joined Ixion, part of Shaw Trust?

Before I started with Shaw Trust, I was a Retail Stock Assistant at Iceland Foods and working freelance jobs in a variety of Digital Marketing areas. This included voice over narration projects, video productions, social media, and flyers. All of this experience I have taken into my current role at Shaw Trust and still use today as a Content Creator!

What motivates and inspires you in your work?

I feel like I have always been a creative, visual person and I love that my role allows me to do this. I am encouraged to put forward any new innovative ideas in terms of content and that motivates me seeing things then put into practice. It is exciting knowing there is always room to adapt and do things differently rather than settle for the same formula all the time. 

What are five words that describe your time at Ixion so far?

Exciting, Rewarding, Challenging, Educational, Inspiring.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love my football and regularly go to watch West Ham at the Olympic Stadium, if not I will be watching at the pub! I try to go to the gym as much as possible and stay fit although I do love the occasional takeaway on the weekend. Also, I like to travel and visit new places!

What is your favourite animal?

I have always liked Penguins; they are just funny to watch at the Zoo waddling about and have a good sense of community when they need each other.

What song represents your time at Ixion?

Probably Que Sera, Sera. I realise in content creation (and life) not everything goes to plan, or ends up how you originally may have visioned something but that is okay and it is about how we overcome and adapt for great results.
