Welcoming Sophie – our new Account Executive
I’m Sophie and I’m excited to be joining the High Rise Communications’ team as an Account Executive. This year I finished a Law degree from the University of Manchester so am excited to have a change of scenery in PR!
Whilst at university I was a Sub-Editor at the university’s newspaper The Mancunion in my second year. After editing and working with editors to publish articles, I progressed to lead the team as Online Editor in my final year. This involved collaborating with writers to produce and publish content that went on to win National Student Journalism Awards on behalf of the newspaper.
I was able to meet incredible women at the Women in Media Conference held at the university and renowned journalists such as Gary Younge through events organised by the Student Union. Through meeting different people in the media I am excited to boost High Rise’s social media accounts and engage with the community through our work.
I’m from Bristol but am glad to be back up North with the friendly accents despite the worse weather than down south!
What I’ll bring to the team…
I can relate to High Rise’s dedication in supporting charities. In 2018 I was part of a team that raised £38,000 for a school in Uganda. I had the opportunity to travel over there, teach in different schools and take students on a safari. Because of this I have a vast appreciation for how important it is to provide charities with the means to spread their message and boost support for their cause. I’m excited to be working in Manchester to see what the city’s charities we work with have to offer.
Speaking about my role, Helen Furnivall, High Rise Communications’ Managing Director, said: “I’m really delighted to welcome Sophie to the team. Sophie did a great job freelancing for us while she was still a student at the University of Manchester. I’m delighted that now she has successfully completed her law degree she’s able to join us full time.”
