Francine Ellison

I am an ambitious, highly motivated and hardworking individual. My friendly, helpful and polite personality means I enjoy interacting, building and maintaining relationships with people. My listening and communication skills mean I thrive in a fast-paced environment and make me always willing to try new things.

During my time in education I achieved 9 GCSE’s all at grade B or above and 3 A Levels in French, Spanish and English Language and now I am in my second year of my degree in Public Relations with Journalism at Leeds Beckett University.

During my studies, I did a placement at Rema Tip Top in Dewsbury assisting with their in-house PR and Marketing needs such as events management, writing web content and press releases and the use of the company’s social media. My current job position as a retail artist at MAC Cosmetics further aids with my relationship building and communication skills which are essential in the PR and Journalism industries. My social media capabilities are very strong and are reinforced in my current job with a large use of social media and hashtags to show ourselves and the products that we use in order to reach the widest audience possible.

In the near future, I hope to continue work in the beauty industry and establish a blog and strong social media presence. I hope that my university degree will give me the knowledge and experience in my writing and industry relevant skills necessary to enter either the world of PR or Journalism.
