Daniel recently completed a week’s work experience with us to increase his knowledge of PR and Marketing and gain some experience working for an award-winning agency. Here, he reflects on his time with us…

Public Relations I have had little experience of. Being a second year Law student at the University of Exeter, I felt it was time to gain some experience in the Public Relations industry, having completed other work experience placements. I contacted Astley Media and from the first email, they were incredibly approachable.

Astley Media offers an excellent work environment; the team is always willing to answer any questions, and they work on the premise that no question is too pointless to ask. It was great to witness how the team support each other in their work, and the culture is open and honest. Not only does Astley Media offer a great work environment but has also received Chartered Institute of Public Relations awards in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017 and is one of the best small PR and Marketing firms in the South West. This is no surprise, given the level of creativity and flair, which is evident in all they do ranging from PR to marketing, social media management to press releases. The firm also supports a range of local initiatives including Fast Track to Growth and Tech South West, supporting other small businesses in the region and overall making the South West a better place to do business.

During my internship, I researched future clients, created content for social media channels and worked with local business initiatives, including Fast Track to Growth and Tech South West. This did not just develop my writing, research and communication skills but allowed me to gain a privileged insight into the wider economy of the South West.

I thoroughly enjoyed my internship at Astley Media and would like to thank the whole team for the welcome and support that they provided me with. Astley Media is a firm I can highly recommend for an internship opportunity and encourage you to get in touch if you are interested in an internship in Public Relations and Marketing.
