Paris joined the hospice in March 2021. Paris works with Harry in the Communications Team and together they support all departments with Marketing & Communications needs.
- What is your role and what do you do?
I work within the department of Fundraising and Communications as the Communications Apprentice and I am studying a digital marketing diploma.
- How does a typical working day look for you?
When arriving at work, I like to get myself ready for the day ahead. Usually starts with doing some emails, checking what we have going out on social media and working with Harry to double check my work load for the day. I could be tasked to do anything from design work right the way through to interviewing someone for social media content. 20% of my week is dedicated for me to learn, I could be doing course work or revision maybe even sitting an exam. At the end of the day, I love to write myself a to do list for the following day and if I have time, I like to write a journal of all the positive things that have happened in the working day.
- What is the best part about your role? And why?
I love being at the events and covering the footage live for those who are unable to attend. I really enjoy being able to portray the atmosphere of the event within the narrative of my social media coverage.
- Why do you enjoy working for the hospice?
I enjoy working for the hospice and it gives me a sense of pride with every piece of work I make. Having never worked within the charity sector before, I feel my role has a difference in generating income and it’s great to be a part of a process.
- Where have you worked before?
I graduated within the first lockdown and worked mainly in part time retail throughout my degree.
- Name a fun fact about you that colleagues may not know…
A fun fact about me that some might not know is that I am a singer/songwriter. I love being creative and getting lost in music, my favourite singer/song writer of all time is Joni Mitchell, both sides now is a great song and comes with a high recommendation from me!
