Publishing across a range of formats - iOS and Android native apps; for tablet and mobile platforms, including e-readers.

A large part of it involved working closely with marketing, sales team, editorial, data and graphics team to secure and deliver digital campaign assets.

Skills include:

Digital content creation, delivery and production

Email campaigns/newsletters and HTML
Different content management systems (CMS and CRM)

What am I looking for

I have a huge interest in digital content marketing, strategy and SEO (and PPC). By working collaboratively with marketing in my previous role, this has given me a broad understanding and knowledge of what’s involved and how to implement it. So I’m keen to do more in this area.
