Additionally, I create content for social media, the website and newsletters to members and supporters. I organise a programme of fundraising events throughout the year, whilst also overseeing event hires.What steps did you take to get where you are now?I studied English Literature and Theatre Studies at the University of Leeds and participated in extra-curricular performance societies throughout my degree. I particularly enjoyed taking up behind the scenes roles, including assistant directing then producing. I also absolutely loved going to the Edinburgh Fringe, both as a performer and as research for my final degree performance. My interest in public speaking was reflected in my part time role as Forum Facilitator at the Student Union, which sparked an interest in student politics, inspiring me to run for the Student Exec. I was successfully elected into the post of Union Affairs Officer at LUU, representing students for a year after graduating. Following this, I came to a crossroads, considering whether to continue seeking work in higher education or return to theatre. Reading the job description for my current role at Theatre Royal Wakefield reminded me how passionate I am about working in this environment. Upon staring my role, I found a mentor through Creative Access, who has helped me to explore my current responsibilities and consider where I would like to go next, over the last six months. I am about to start meeting with a new mentor. I’m ambitious about progressing towards a leadership role in the performing arts sector; I’m aiming to broaden my knowledge and skills through the Creative Leadership Programme, a partnership between Creative Wakefield and the University of Leeds.What type of creative opportunities are you looking for?I’m currently looking to remain in my role, as I am still learning. Eventually, I am keen to remain in the performing arts sector but move into different departments. I’d like to try roles where I get to use my creativity and work more closely with participants.Answer as many of the following questions as you like to enhance your profile pageMy dream creative collaboration would be...What does Wakefield mean to you?My proudest momentAn unexpected thing about meTick any that apply to youCreative Services Architecture & Planning Creative Education Creative Producing Design Services Graphic Design Marketing & Advertising Other Product Design Set Design Technical Production Creative Content Animation Digital Content Creation Games Design Other Photography Publishing Radio & Podcasts TV & Film Creative Original Apparel & Fashion Arts & Crafts Creative Writing Fine Art Other Sculpture Creative Experiences Dance Libraries Museums and Heritage Music Other Performing Arts Theatre Creative Digital App Development AR & VR Computer Networking Other Software Development Web Design Showcase your workYour video showreel Copy and paste the URL of your Vimeo or YouTube videoUpload up to 5 showcase imagesShowcase image 1 Drop files here or Select files Accepted file types: jpg, jpeg, png, Max. file size: 10 MB.
