After completing a master’s degree in International Politics, I was eager to enter the world of public relations and corporate communications.

Throughout both my undergraduate and postgraduate studies, I focused on how traditional and popular spaces, such as film, television and social media influenced public opinion and I was keen to explore this area further.

I applied to join Blakeney as an intern and from the outset was met by a warm and welcoming team. With one-to-one meetings with every member of staff, from Account Executives to the CEO, there was a refreshing willingness from them to openly share their knowledge and ideas, and I immediately felt like an important part of the team. I was exposed to a wide range of clients and experienced a variety of tasks, from daily media monitoring to site visits. Any queries I had were met with enthusiasm, and no question was made to seem too trivial. Blakeney cultivates a hardworking, fast-paced culture, but despite just starting in my career, I was instantly made to feel that my work was of value and that my contributions were recognised.

Towards the end of my three-month internship, I had truly begun to feel part of the team. I was therefore delighted to be offered a permanent position in the team as an Account Executive. The transition has been extremely smooth and the knowledge that I gained during my internship has proved invaluable.

Blakeney is a rapidly growing company, with an expanding client list. As a result, it offers plenty of opportunities to develop, but it also offers the chance to be part of a friendly, positive, and dynamic team. I’m excited to be a part of it.
