About me

Hi!

My name is Alistair. I am a Journalism and Public Relations graduate and I have just completed my masters in Marketing at the University of Lincoln. I have just started an internship role within the Communications, Development and Marketing department at the University of Lincoln as CDM intern. I am interested in PR, marketing, design, social media, photography and technology.

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.

I will be completing my internship at the University of Lincoln until September 2019, but I would be very interested to hear about any opportunities beginning on or after October 2019.

If you would like to get in touch, please visit the contact section.

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.
