  • Corporate Affairs InternMHP CommunicationsMay 2016 – June 2016 (2 months)London, United KingdomI recently completed an internship on the Corporate Affairs division with MHP Communications, a firm specialising in the delivery of innovative campaigns and communications strategies across a wide range of fields such as public affairs, government relations as well as stakeholder engagement. The tasks much like the work produced by the team was diverse and therefore, required a range of skills and the ability to multitask through a flexible approach. Within this role, I have been able to offer logistical support for events and offered support for the assessment of business opportunities, write biographies on political or business leaders, maintain data bases so that the contracts were continuously up to date with the most revenant information tailored to client needs, foster relations with the media in terms of potential stories of interest, and would collect political intelligence over current relevant policy issues affecting clients. Maintaining an eye for detail, I would proof materials that would be privately circulated to clients or, on the other hand, be made readily available in the public domain or I would create in-depth briefing notes that would measure competitor analysis in order to improve services to clients and strengthen the company name. Research InternComResFebruary 2016 – March 2016 (2 months)London, United KingdomComRes is a research and polling firm specialising in the delivery of high quality reports through quantitative and qualitative methods. Crisis management, corporate reputation and public affairs are the pillars of the company’s core areas of expertise and this is where I have been assisting with the production of the final materials presented to the clients from both the private and the public sector including infrastructure, health and charitable organisations amongst others.During the course of this research internship I have developed an advanced knowledge of MS Office and the recruitment of senior stakeholders like CEOs and MEPs, over the phone or by email, in order to secure participation in the research being conducted by the company. Public Relations InternAllen & UnwinJuly 2013 – August 2013 (2 months)Sydney, AustraliaAllen and Unwin is Australia's leading independent publishing house having won multiple awards such as the prestigious 'Publisher of the Year' as voted by Australian booksellers for the fourth consecutive year.This internship in public relations allowed me to participate in and see at first hand the importance of consistently being able to deliver the best results as part of a team, even in a time pressured context or coordinating across different time zones, in order to achieve high customer satisfaction. The assigned administrative tasks varied on a daily basis ranging from editing content, analysing reports and updating contact sheets on Excel, conducting interviews over the phone, using Photoshop for materials designed for promotional purposes, and monitoring different media channels for feedback on the current publicity strategy being deployed, seeking innovation where possible. I would also liaise with journalists and brief clients over the phone or with email in order to provide concise information to different stakeholders, displaying different tactics for different audiences. University Accommodation OfficerUniversity of St Andrews Students' AssociationApril 2012 – April 2013 (1 year 1 month)This elected position on the Student Representative Council served as a direct link between the elected Senior Students within university halls and the members of the Residential and Business Services. I organised and chaired the Senior Student forums on a monthly basis opening channels of communication between representative students and members of the Residential and Business Services. Additionally, I would vote on issues and raise concerns during the Student Council meetings affecting student life and university policy and as part of the accommodation team, we created a survey that was completed by almost 1000 students and whose results will serve as a reference for future university accommodation facilities and potential building plans.
