Having lived in Australia for a year I moved over to New Zealand and became settled in the largest city, Auckland.
I was previously working as the Digital Strategist within a hospitality company in Auckland, having worked my way up from a temporary job as a bartender to a bar manager followed by my promotion to the office.
I worked in this position for 18 months and my key skills and job requirements include website updates (wordpress) & content management (working with bloggers), social media management (for 8 brands), event management and ticket sales handling.
I decided to leave to spend time at home over Christmas, my first at home in 5 years. While at home I setup a personal e-commerce shop using Bigcommerce. This has allowed me to expand my skill-set into SEM, SEO and Social Media marketing.
I'm now back in New Zealand as the shop was designed as a form of passive income, only requiring 10 hours work a week max. I enjoy freelance work as it gives me an opportunity to learn the different requirements within each area of business and work with multiple people. Something I very much enjoyed while travelling.
