About me

Hi!

My name is Alistair. I am a Journalism and Public Relations graduate and I have just graduated from my master's degree in Marketing at the University of Lincoln. I am currently working in the Public Relations and Internal Communications team within the Communications, Development and Marketing department at the University of Lincoln. I am interested in PR, marketing, design, social media, photography and technology.

I previously completed an internship in the department along with a graduate development programme, details of which can be found on my CDM Internship page.

I developed this site to act as a digital portfolio, blog and CV for anyone who is interested in my work. Unless otherwise stated, all the content and media on the site have been created by me.

Key Skills

Organisation and Logistics

I have project managed a variety of complex projects for clients involving resource management, travel arrangements and interviews among other things. Planning and organisation come naturally to me and as such I cope well with complex plans.

Social Media

I am a self confessed social media addict and I am constantly seeking out new and upcoming social media platforms. I have a good grasp of all major social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube and Reddit.

Content Production

During my time at university and with Cygnet PR I have worked with many teams to produce digital content including videos, posters, blog posts, social media posts and more with specific audiences and purposes in mind.

Marketing

I have recently completed my masters degree in Marketing at the University of Lincoln. I have also been lucky enough to volunteer within the marketing function of Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance and I am currently undertaking an internship in the marketing office of the University of Lincoln.

Writing

I really enjoy writing and both of my degree programmes have given me the opportunity to write for a wide range of audiences and purposes. I also blog both here on my site as well as for other websites including Campus Society and Student Life.

Public Relations

I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Public Relations at the University of Lincoln in 2017. During this time I have been lucky enough to work with several real clients through Cygnet PR and develop the practical skills along with the theory taught throughout the degree.

Graduation

January has provided an opportunity for me to experience working at one of the biggest events in the University calendar: Graduation!

Happy Holidays!

One quarter of the way through my internship and I cannot believe how fast it has come around. Even more surprising: this blog is going up (more or less) when it should!
