Communications and Multimedia Manager Hertfordshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
Before starting out as a freelancer, I worked full-time in NHS communications (November 2004 to June 2011)
My role included managing projects with external and internal client teams; producing printed information in the form of brochures, leaflets, posters and annual reports for stakeholders and the general public.
I was also responsible for the management, development and daily maintenance of the website, staff intranet and monthly e-magazine.
Conducting interviews with staff and visitors, writing articles, creating illustrations and photography for the monthly e-magazine was key to the role and one of my favourite responsibilities.
Other aspects of the role included:
- Project costs negotiations with suppliers and printers.
- Communications planning
- Staff training
- Design of corporate screensavers
- Event banners and merchandise design
- Creating presentations for bid teams and keynote speakers.
