As part of a wider role as marketing manager, I was responsible for proofreading all marketing collateral, including annual reports, impact reports, advertising copy, editorial copy, website copy, social media copy, press releases and parent information. Given that our target audience was both hearing and deaf, I had to ensure that copy was accessible to all.
As part of a wider marketing manager role, I was responsible for the final proofreading of all marketing collateral for the University of Exeter Students' Guild. This included student handbooks, information leaflets, website copy, and press releases.
