Alice King

I am a second year at Leeds Business School (Leeds Beckett) studying Public Relations and Communications.

I have always put myself forward for PR experience, starting with my year 10 work experience fortnight at boutique PR agency Media Jems at the age of 15. Since then I have continued to further my experience in the industry by doing placements at local PR agencies and a placement as Artist Liaison Assistant for Festival Republic at Latitude Festival. I am interested in agencies and in-house experience around Leeds, and am a hard worker with a passion for public relations in all fields.

My two main strengths are writing and social media. I have had an interview with band The Maccabees published in the Eastern Daily Press and my blog posts for Harris Associates and Media Jems published on their websites. I have been doing online promotion for around 4 years on a small scale promoting my own singing via social media sites, my soundcloud page now has over 17,000 listens. I also have experience in film production and client relations from the work I did with The Pillow Fort – a small company offering support and fun for chronically ill teenagers. I created a 4-minute promotional video for the company which was shared on their Facebook page.

My long term goals are to work in the Creative Industries or the Construction and Architecture Industry.
