Dear Sir/Madam

I am a seasoned, dynamic and ambitious Communications & Marketing Assistant. I recently completed a BA degree in corporate communications at the University of Johannesburg in 2014.

My experience includes communications and marketing strategy development and implementation, brand management, stakeholder management. The nature of my degree course has prepared various positions. It involved a great deal of independent research, requiring initiative, self-motivation and a wide range of skills. Strategic communication places emphasis on the understanding of the marketing/communication industry which is highly significant. I found this subject very stimulating. I worked for the National Arts Council as Marketing and communications Assistant. I worked for Foregood brands in the year of 2010 as a promoter, and I worked as a casual sales assistant named Factorie from November 2014 until January 2015. I was employed as a Communications & Marketing assistant as well as an admin assistant under the Department of Arts & Culture, at the National Arts Council of South Africa in 2015. I’ve worked on various departments including switchboard on a daily basis and reception. I am a fast and accurate writer, with a keen eye for detail and I should be very grateful for the opportunity to progress in the work environment. I am able to take on the responsibility of any position offered to me and have the enthusiasm and determination to ensure that I make a success of it. I recently worked at Platinum Life as a Data Lead Generator and I was also employed at Callforce Recruitment as an Online Language Consultant (Teaching Online) in 2016. I am currently an Online English Teacher working for Education First, I teach students from a variety of countries all over the world for example China, Japan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, etc. I am currently doing a PGCE (Senior and FET Phase) through UNISA.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours sincerely
