Ashleigh Morgan The Coach House, Caldewell Farm Barns, Pershore Road, Stoulton, WR7 4RL Tel: 07734 391988 Date of Birth: 5th January 1988 Driving Licence: September 2006 (clean) Nationality: British Email: ashleigh.morgan@hotmail.co.uk An ambitious and conscientious English graduate with a successful academic history. An excellent communicator with good people skills. Key Skills: • Confident and outgoing with excellent interpersonal skills. • A fast learner with the ability to quickly adapt to a variety of challenges. • Extremely organised and can work under pressure to meet deadlines. • Excellent verbal and written skills. EDUCATION 2006-2009 BA (Hons) English and Sociology – 2.1 University of Keele Skills Developed: Independent project work developed my analytical thought and the ability to manage projects independently. Furthermore, knowledge gained from lectures and interactions with fellow students has improved my ability to hold discussions across a broad range of topics. 2004 – 2006 A Levels: Sociology (A), English Language and Literature (A), Psychology (A), Biology (AS level – C) 1999 – 2004 GCSE’s: A* (2), A (4), B (4), C (2). WORK EXPERIENCE: October 2010 – present - EDITORIAL ASSISTANT Viva Publishing – The company published three magazines; two regional and a national magazine. The position required me to consistently work to deadlines and under pressure, liaising with companies, event organisers and stockists. As assistant to two editors, I was responsible for chasing copy and images that they or freelance writers required as well as constructing and writing my own pages. For most of the regional issues, I wrote over half of the editorial. I was lucky enough to do interviews with renowned sportsmen and business providers and enjoyed attending the launch of new restaurants to conduct reviews. I also relished the opportunity of writing my own column in each issue. I have had to establish a great discipline and organisation of my talents to ensure that everything is completed on time to the highest possible standard.. Contracted from APRIL 2010 – JULY 2010 – RESEARCH ASSISTANT University of Worcester - This position involved a lot of independent working and organising of my work schedule. I was involved with the production of three reports concerning maternal and newborn care, safeguarding children and children’s health. I was appointed leader of the curriculum assessments and had to use my time as efficiently and productively as possible as the writing of the reports was dependent on my findings. I created tables on Word, formatted documents, and used spreadsheets. The position ended when the reports were published. OCTOBER 2009 – JANUARY 2010 – SALES AND MARKETING EXECUTIVE Find-a-Directory Limited - This temporary three month position consisted of generating and maintaining sales through to completion. A friendly manner was necessary at all times, as well as an ability to create a personal rapport with the customer and to ensure that they were treated as an individual. It was my role to work with consumers to get the best deal for their nursing home company from an advertising perspective. I therefore used cold calling in business to business sales. I also prepared a presentation and had to pitch in front of the managing director, the sales manager and one of my colleagues in order to help them decide which venture the company should next pursue. JULY 13TH – AUGUST 12TH 2009 – SALES ASSISTANT JoJo Maman Bebe - This temporary position consisted of greeting the public and then helping them to find the most suitable products for their babies. It required knowledge of child development and to approach customers in a confident manner. I believe it helped to develop my interaction skills as I was faced with a wide variety of consumers. JUNE 2007-2008 – SALES CONSULTANT/ ASSISTANT Tempest Photography – During summer graduations, I worked as a sales consultant for a large photography company. This involved greeting customers at Manchester University’s Graduation, providing information on costs and sales packages, dealing with difficult customers, and helping to run the photographic sessions over a two week period, with approximately 8000 graduates. MAY 2008 and March 2010 – TRAINEE JOURNALIST The Sentinel, Stoke-on-Trent and the Worcester News, Worcester. These two one-week work experience placements involved attending local political meetings, court sentencings and taking notes which were later used by other journalists for their stories. Several articles were written which required ringing local people to discover information on various events and stories. A restaurant review was also constructed. JULY 2004 – JANUARY 2007 – CASHIER Sainsbury’s, Stoke-on-Trent - To aid the smooth running of the establishment within a team; the role included cash handling, customer service experience, and occasionally involved stock rotation and management. ACHIEVEMENTS AND AWARDS Awarded Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence BST Level One Award in Sports Leadership Distinction in Catholic Studies INTERESTS Enjoys sporting activities such as horse riding, dog walking, and trampolining and was part of both the Equestrian and Trampolining teams at Keele University. Relaxes by reading various literary genres. REFEREES – available on request Covering Letter Having desired to become a journalist and work in the media from a young age, I believe that the experience I have gained over numerous years has helped shape me into an ambitious and conscientious individual who is driven and determined to succeed. During secondary school, I worked on a local youth paper called The Whisper which involved discovering news stories within my home region and writing them up for publishing. In May 2008, I had a week’s work experience placement at my local newspaper, The Sentinel. This involved attending local political meetings and court sentencings where I took notes which were later used by other journalists for their stories. Several news articles were written and published which required ringing people to discover information on various events and stories. A restaurant review was also conducted. More recently, in August 2009, I wrote articles for Eclipse media and Canny Minds, both of which were published on their websites. In October 2009, I transcribed sound-bites and edited them for the website, cmypitch.com. Forty sound-bites were transcribed and then edited to ensure the quote flowed and read legibly to the reader. My position at Viva Publishing is a challenge that I relish and I enjoy every minute of my time with the company. It cemented in my mind that this is definitely the industry I wish to work in and I believe my enthusiasm and passion while in post has reflected this. I was lucky enough to do interviews with renowned sportsmen and business providers and enjoyed attending the launch of new restaurants to conduct reviews. I also gained the opportunity to write my own column in each issue. I believe this displays that I am a committed and responsible individual who is dedicated to her work and career as also acknowledged by Keele University in their offering of the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship for Academic Excellence to myself. I am used to preparing for deadlines and am extremely organised. My previous employment has provided me with the vital skills of being an effective communicator and allowing me to become a competent and confident member of a team who can contribute to any situation.
