The Northern Media team has welcomed two new recruits to our Wakefield-office following the continued growth and development of the business.
Hannah Foss joined this month as an apprentice from Barnsley College and will be supporting Jess Venson on graphic design for print and digital projects. Hannah’s background includes a graphic design level 3 extended diploma, together with work experience in Barnsley College’s in house design studio, GEM.
Chris Elliott, managing director of Northern Media, said:
“We have taken on two apprentices in the last two years from Barnsley College and during that time we have built a strong relationship with the educational body who produces some exceptional students. Apprentices really fit our policy of recruiting young creatives to help drive our business forward.
“Hannah has already got a good portfolio of work so we are confident she will be a great asset to the business. Together with her enthusiasm and passion for design, we feel Hannah will be a great addition to the team and we look forward to seeing her develop over the coming months.”
Meanwhile, Alina McAuley has also taken a new position of account manager, joining our contingent of Huddersfield University journalism graduates. Alina has a journalism and public relations (PR) background and experience in online writing and blogging. Her new role will mean that she will manage and develop existing client relationships. This includes managing the day to day contact with clients and coordinating client digital marketing activity.
“We interviewed a lot of people for the position, but one of the things that really stood out with Alina was her natural confidence and enthusiasm. She has a really good understanding of digital media and has experience in managing client relationships which is important in account management. She really impressed us during the interview process with her determination to work within a progressive and creative business. Alina is a talented, young and creative individual that will fit well into our team.”
