To Whom it May Concern, I am available immediately to fill a position suited to my qualifications, skills, and experience. I offer 9 years’ experience in the marketing and public relations field and can work simultaneously on a variety of projects or tasks at one given time. My skills have allowed me to formulate customised solutions assisting brands to stand out, increase awareness and returns. I am outstandingly positioned to find effective, exceptional, and sensible ideas for clients. My experience extends to Marketing, PR, Social Media, and alternative communication methods, where I aim to support brands to reach higher than their current successes. I am skilled in the following areas: Development of brand strategy, Digital Communications, Social Media Management, Activations (Expos, roadshows, mall activations etc.), Events, Exhibitions, Internal public relations initiatives, Media liaison, Project Management, Design, Procurement, Video Production and Photography. The types of brands I have previously worked with include; Lights, Batteries, Cosmetics, Personal Care, Infant & Toddler Care, Sterilisation, Eco-Friendly, Pasta & Grains, Healthy Snacking, Education, Skills Development, Banking, Public Health, Industry Bodies, Wellness, Property Groups, NPO’s and NGO’s. I have a passion for Corporate Social Investment where I have connected brands with suitable initiatives and vice versa. I have worked on projects that included but are not limited to; HIV Testing, HIV Prevention, HIV Education, Female Sexual & Reproductive Health, Male Sexual & Reproductive Health, Women & Maternal Health, General Health & Wellness, Sustainability, Hygiene, Gender Based Violence Activist, Children’s Rights, Food Security, Youth Development and Animals Rights. In addition, at my previous job as Senior Account Manager at [dot]GOOD Marketing & PR, I worked closely with the owner from the company’s inception in 2013 which included registering the business, making sure that the company was compliant, and managing projects/client of various sizes. I also assisted with bringing in new business, managed internal staff, and project-based staff of more than 100 individuals. I constantly worked with the creatives such as graphic designers, copywriters, and alike to bring the client's vision to life. I am accustomed to working and managing all aspects of a project from brief, budgeting, creative, design, procurement, supplier management, operations, team management, facilitating, tracking progress, client liaison, and feedback. I was also appointed office manager which demonstrates my ability to work on specialist projects while managing to handle administrative, organisational and people skills. To demonstrate the confidence my previous employer had in my skills and abilities, the owner of the company opened a sister brand called [dot]Experiential where I was appointed 51% Owner/Director to assist with government tendering as my position as a young black female allowed the company to tender as a Level 1 BBBEE supplier. Unfortunately, at [dot]GOOD the highest title I could hold was a Senior Account Manager and it was for this reason I decided to resign as there was no further room for growth or advancement. Thanking You, Carlin Apollos
