The masses are crying out, “There aren’t any jobs!”
That may be so but for one ambitious Northern Irish woman, she’s embarking on the first steps in a public relations career after landing a job with an award-winning agency – Birscoe French.
21 year old Chloe Hawthorn, is a former pupil of Rockport School in Holywood and The Royal School of Armagh. Her enthusiasm for PR and communications started when she was made Deputy Head Girl and began writing and delivering speeches to large audiences on a regular basis.
Chloe said: “At a young age I quickly realised that writing, speaking and delivering information to an audience, regardless of format, was something I wanted to continue doing and I couldn’t think of a better way to do that than to forge a career in PR.”
She made the move to the mainland in 2013, ambitious to study a PR degree at Bournemouth University and while at university was elected as the university’s CIPR (Chartered Institute of Public Relations) Representative and hosted a networking event which is where she met Briscoe French director, Kevin Briscoe.
Kevin said: “Chloe made an instant hit with us at Briscoe French so when we found out she needed a job for her placement year we snapped her up straight away.
Chloe added: “Becoming a member of the Briscoe French team marks an incredibly exciting time in my career. I am thrilled to work with such a talented and experienced group of people and also have the chance to work with clients on a national and international scale. I’m really looking forward to the year ahead.”
Nowadays, Chloe lives in Hampshire and has been appointed as an account executive at Briscoe French working with international and UK-wide clients.
