Becky's Profile

Experience Summary

I am a Broadcast Journalist and trained actress with a background in law and Theatre. I have worked in Promotions on a part-time basis for the past 5 years as a sideline to my normal work. I'm bubbly, personable, energetic, and professional about my approach to work. As such, i feel that my personality is well suited to the inter-changeable, demanding and fast-paced world of promotions. I relish the change of scenery promotion can offer in comparison to the dullness of a regular 9-5, which is testament to my working in the industry for the past 5 years. I love meeting new people and constantly interacting with new clientele and brands. Due to the sporadic nature of my work, i'm often available at very short notice. I'm willing to travel long distances for work. I have bases in York (main home) Brighton, Oxford, Bolton and Manchester. Aside from work my other interests are:- travelling, music, theatre, cinema/film, Horse riding, sailing, skiing, walking, reading and cooking. View my contact details, availability, and stats.
