Our digital teams expanding

September 13, 2019

This summer may not have brought us the tan lines and record-breaking temperatures that we would have liked, but it has brought us 2 new members of the Ghost family! Our digital team has expanded and we can’t wait to see what Jess and Laura will bring.

Jess, Digital Media Executive:

“Hi I’m Jess, We Are Ghost’s newest recruit! After a year full of all night study sessions and dissertation deadlines, I have successfully completed my greatest achievement so far… gaining my BA Hons in Public Relations and Marketing from MMU.

 

With a bittersweet taste in my mouth I have officially waved goodbye to Manchester, student life, and all the benefits that come with it, this including student discounts, an unhealthy amount of free time and that Student Finance text at the start of every new term.

 

However I am excited for the next chapter of my life starting with my new position as Digital Media Executive at Ghost. After a summer of fun and frolicking with my friends I felt it was the perfect time to reside to the 9to5 life.

 

My role involves specialising in SEO and other aspects of digital marketing including social media and website management. My new position doesn’t only come with the obvious challenges… no more weekday lie-ins, but being the independent and confident digital marketer university has equipped me for. Having confidence in my own ability is something that is growing everyday.

 

I would definitely describe myself as a social butterfly! If I don’t have plans starting at half 5 on a Friday evening there is something seriously wrong!”

Laura, Junior Web Developer:

‘’I have been working as a web developer at We Are Ghost for the last couple months. I graduated from Nottingham Trent University around a year ago with a degree in Digital Media Technology, which I thoroughly enjoyed. As my favourite modules were web design and development, this was the path I decided I wanted to go down when I graduated.

 

Outside of work, my main hobby is archery, which I have been doing for the last 10 years. I was selected to represent Derbyshire, both regionally and nationally where we competed against the other counties in England’’
