The ever-expanding team here at Northern Media welcomed Owen Molde as their latest placement student from the University of Huddersfield in November.
Owen has joined Northern Media alongside his final year of his degree in journalism. He is keen to put into practice his writing and media skills and is delighted to gain experience in digital marketing.
Owen will work closely with our marketing executives, supporting them on a range of things including copywriting, social media and SEO work.
This first-hand experience will allow Owen to gain a valuable insight into how the marketing industry operates and how the Northern Media team delivers results to clients. It will also allow him to produce a portfolio of work which he will be able to submit towards his final degree.
“I am looking forward to my time at Northern Media. Everybody has made me feel welcome and I’m excited to be a part of such a close-knit team,” said Owen. “I’ve wanted to learn more about the business side of the media for a while. This is the perfect opportunity to be able to do that and I will be able to use my transferable skills from journalism to make the most of it.”
Chris Elliott, Managing Director of Northern Media, also commented: “Over the last few years we have developed a great relationship with the Journalism department at the university of Huddersfield and have taken on several placement students. Owen, our latest of these students, has just joined and has quickly settled into the team. The quality of his writing combined with the enthusiasm he has shown to learn more about digital marketing has allowed him to make a valuable contribution – he even joined in on a teambuilding exercise that took place in the Northern Media offices recently.”
