I am writing this post on my last day at Creo.
I came here on a week of work experience last year and it wasn’t long before I felt like part of the team.
Although I have been here just over three months, I have learnt so much in that time.
As my Masters comes to an end and I leave for pastures new, I will look back on Creo fondly as my first job in PR and I can’t think of a better place to cut my teeth.
I couldn’t have had better people than Louise and Bryn to give me an insight into the PR industry; their knowledge and experience is second-to-none and nothing has ever been too much trouble.
Working at Creo alongside studying for a Masters in PR has been invaluable in terms of developing my skills and helping me progress. I feel like I have come a long way since my work experience here.
Creo has given me a grounding in PR of which I can build upon and I know I’ll be using the skills and knowledge I have learnt here for years to come.
I would like to say a big thank you to Louise who has supported and encouraged me from the start. I am forever grateful for her taking a chance on me and allowing me work at Creo around my studies.
I don’t think I know anyone who works as hard as Louise- seeing her run a business while making it look so easy has been inspiring.
I would like to thank Bryn for always being there to give feedback and I’ll miss laughing about our shared experiences of working at small-town newspapers.
While I am excited for my next adventure, I will certainly miss Creo. I have had the opportunity to see first-hand what goes into planning and implementing PR campaigns and have been able to turn my hand to a number of different things.
I have worked on some really exciting projects for a vast range of clients from Sunderland’s 2021 City of Culture bid (fingers crossed!) to Port of Sunderland and many more.
Coming from North Shields, I’ll admit I’ve never had much of an affiliation with Sunderland but working for Creo is like a master class in all things to do with the city. There’s a lot going on and I’m sure Sunderland has a bright future ahead.
I can’t thank Creo enough for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for them.
