Jack Walton

PR & Media

Personal statement

I'm a final year student and soon to be graduate studying a degree in media and PR at Birmingham City University. My main aspirations are to gain employment within the public relations sector, working either within an agency or in-house. I've had previous experience undertaking internships at different agencies across the city, along with working in-house for a fashion brand and have worked in paid roles for multiple clients.

My aim is to work within the fashion sector and I'm flexible with the brand or agency I work for. For my final year project at university I setup my own consultancy, Walton PR, the website and examples you can see within this portfolio. I worked for multiple clients undertaking different activities, from event organisation, social media management and brand development, this is all referenced throughout. Undertaking this project was a major experience for me, I learnt that being organised within my chosen industry is key, I enjoyed juggling the multiple activities I'd do daily for my different clients. For example, I could be doing anything from researching bloggers to invite to a fashion event, to securing radio and press opportunities for my music client, I enjoy the flexibility of using my skill set for multiple activities.
