Only five more Mondays until Christmas! We’re getting a bit too excited for the festive season here at Creo HQ and already have the date in the diary for putting up our tree!
Getting us in the festive spirit is the countdown to the Frost Village coming to Sunderland on November 26. We’ll be wrapping up to enjoy the ice rink, Christmas market and Christmas funfair, and we’ll be sure to get some ice skating tips from Dancing On Ice stars Andrei Lipanov and Susie Lipanova at the Gala Ice Extravaganza!
And more exciting news, we have another new addition to the team who’ll be heading down to the ice rink with us…
Meet Khanyie Shamakumba….
“So this is my first day at Creo and I am so excited and lucky to have landed myself a placement here. The team are all really welcoming and I already feel at home working with them all.
“I’m currently doing my Masters degree in Public Relations at the University of Sunderland and I’ve never had any experience working in a PR agency.
“Having previously studied an Undergraduate degree in broadcast journalism, I understand just how important work experience is, and I was determined to get working in PR as soon as I began my course this year,” says Khanyie.
“I know it’s only been a day, but this experience alone has confirmed just how much I want to work in public relations. I have been given tasks to work on straight away and I’m enjoying the responsibility and the feeling of achievement after doing some work for a few clients.
“During my time here I’m hoping to improve my press release writing, since I’ve been on the receiving end of them for the past three years, rather than having the chance to develop my own. Being able to experience working in a real agency will be so valuable in developing my career and understanding my studies further. I am so grateful to the team for being patient and taking the time to show me the ropes.
“My confidence is already growing and I’ve got Creo to thank for that. It’s like a Christmas present has come early!”
