05 Sep Black Vanilla Welcomes Two New Graduates to its Growing Team
Black Vanilla has strengthened its team with two new appointments; graduates Katie Leach and Krista Osborne join the agency as Junior PR Executive and Social Media and Events Assistant respectively.
The appointments come as Black Vanilla continues to expand through organic growth and a number of new business wins.
What Experience Katie and Krista Bring to Black Vanilla
Katie has recently returned to Guernsey after graduating from the University of Winchester with a degree in Media, Communications and Journalism.
During her time at university, she developed a keen interest in PR, gaining invaluable industry experience through a work placement in broadcast journalism.
Krista also joins the agency with a degree in History and Philosophy from Sussex University.
Krista brings a keen interest in all aspects of social media and experience of running her own YouTube channel to the team.
Their Role at Black Vanilla
Krista’s role will see her working alongside the Black Vanilla team to develop creative campaigns and support them with their clients’ social media accounts.
In her short time at Black Vanilla, Krista has already organised successful events and ambient activity for one of the agency’s largest commercial clients, demonstrating her great attention to detail, organisational skills and ability to think one step ahead.
Katie’s background means she has excellent insights into today’s media landscape and, along with her copywriting skills, she will provide support to the agency’s PR team, planning and implementing campaigns.
