Media Work Experience

Media Administration

Over the past year I have developed my skills and drawn from outside experience to become a competent and highly capable administrator. My role as PA and studio assistant to Nick Sonuga at Studio Six Music, requires my exceptional organisation skills. My responsibilities include managing studio bookings, calendars and liaising with clients as their first point of call. The flexibility of the role enables me to work elsewhere simultaneously.
