Starting as editorial assistant, I eventually became acting editor of Europe's three biggest selling hair and beauty titles: Hair & Beauty Inspirations; Hair Now and Perfect Hair.
As we were a small company with an even smaller editorial team, my responsibilities included writing features as well as creating the flatplan and editing the magazine. My role also saw me managing a small team and delegating work accordingly.
I was also responsible for launching, running and editing the corresponding website www.findasalon.co.uk and launching our social media.
I worked with Women's Fitness magazine to help them with the launch of their beauty section. Post launch, I worked as a contributor, researching and writing a minimum of two hair and beauty features each month and ensuring they were always appropriate to the Women's Fitness reader.
I was also responsible for arranging monthly photoshoots for the Gym Bag beauty feature, which entailed calling in products and briefing the photographer and photo editor.
