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 the agency continues to expand through organic growth and a number of new business wins.
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.
Her background means Katie has excellent insight 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.
Krista also joins the agency with a degree in History and Philosophy from Sussex University.
Her role will see her further develop Black Vanilla’s social media and event management services.
Krista brings a keen interest in all aspects of social media and experience of running her own YouTube channel to the team.
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.
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.
Nichole Culverwell, Managing Director of Black Vanilla, said: “We are delighted to welcome two fantastic local graduates to the agency and look forward to helping them develop their skills. Their academic backgrounds, extensive work experience and enthusiasm for our industry will help us drive Black Vanilla forward during this period of growth.”
