New PR and Marketing Intern

We have a new PR and marketing intern at Nellie PR and it’s me – Sam Hayes.

I’m following in good footsteps.  Other interns at Nellie PR have included Hollie-Anne Brooks and Luke Bristow who both blogged about their experiences back in the day: journalist turns PR intern and PR agency appoints PR intern and have gone on to do great things. Nellie PR also pays all its interns and champions better internships that are accessible to all so another big thumbs up from me.

So, I’m really excited to take on the challenge of being Nellie PR’s new intern. It’s a great opportunity to dive into the deep end and explore what PR and marketing are all about and gain some real-life business experience, and absolutely fabulous PR and marketing skills.

My enthusiasm and drive to learn as much as I can over my next year or so here puts me in a good place to take on any challenge that will come my way.  I’ve worked with a wide variety of teams and people throughout my work as a waitress and maths tutor, which I now hope to expand even further through my work for Nellie PR (but without having to make so many lattes or dealing with too many quadratic formulas).

Originally I come from just outside London, so the view of the gorgeous Devon coastline from our office in Teignmouth is a refreshing change. I’m currently in my second year of reading History at the University of Exeter. Off campus, I am learning (or attempting to learn…most of my time is spent falling flat on my face) how to wakeboard. My main off-campus focus, however, is hopefully to get to know all the lovely Nellie PR clients and contribute blog posts, interviews and much more to Nellie PR.

I am hoping that working for Nellie PR and consequently a whole host of different companies and projects, that I will gain a wide variety of skills that will set me up for a long career in public relations after university. One of my first and ongoing jobs is to run our social media accounts, so hopefully your timelines and newsfeeds will be full of Nellie PR news, updates and events soon enough. Please follow @nelliepr on Twitter to keep up to date on my work and efforts here at Nellie PR.
