Marketing & Sales Assistant since March 2019
I support the Business Development & Marketing Manager with the organisation and coordination of Basis Training & Education. I enable the development and delivery of training, conferences & events, venue hire, educational resources, campaigns, fundraising and merchandising. If not keeping on top of our various social media accounts, I’ll be creating promotional materials, or working on building our marketing strategy. I also take part in street outreach.
I graduated from Leeds Uni in 2017 with a degree in International History and Politics. After that, I briefly worked in the private sector, and then went to work at a hospice as a trust fundraiser. I still do that part time 2 days a week, whilst working 3 days a week at Basis. I have lived in Leeds for 5 years, but am originally from down South.
A little bit personal about me
I am a very proud feminist, so am really happy to finally be working in a place that supports my values! I also volunteer on the SARSVL Rape Crisis Helpline and have dabbled in some conference speaking. In my spare time you will find me in the gym (begrudgingly), sitting in Brudenell Social Club, or exploring Yorkshire!
