As a third year history student, I was keen to step into the world of PR and knew that I needed to gain as much experience as possible. The office environment at Unsworth Sugden is extremely positive and welcoming and I settled in almost instantly.
From the start of my time with the PR team, I was given briefings and a list of jobs to complete. These ranged from drafting press releases, updating media and guest lists and creating an itinerary for a journalist to stay at a new homes development. This opportunity provided me with a variety of invaluable transferable skills; I was given clear instruction on how to use tools such as ebiquity and Vuelio, which will be useful for any further work in PR.
Additionally, I was also fortunate enough to work on jobs for a variety of industry-leading clients and a FTSE 100 company.
I would definitely say to anybody keen to step into PR, or anybody considering it, to consider work experience at Unsworth Sugden as I have no doubt that this will cement your interest.
