Two new University of Salford interns join the Marketing & Communications team

Meet Issy Sweet and Rachel Beeson, our two new marketing and communications interns.

Issy Sweet

Hi, I’m Issy, a PR Intern at Walk the Plank. I am a final year Multimedia Journalism student from the University of Salford. Currently, I am focused on the Green Space Dark Skies project, this means I am working to help the PR team with news stories, location research and writing copy. I am enjoying being part of a creative team of people who share a passion for nature. From this internship I am hoping to gain industry standard skills, a network of people who I can communicate with for advice and a better understanding of PR and what a career in PR has to offer me.

Rachel Beeson

Hi, I’m Rachel, a Marketing and Communications Intern at Walk the Plank. I am a Socially Engaged Photography MA student at The University of Salford. Currently, I am working on social media for Walk the Plank and editing, photography and design for events and productions associated with Walk the Plank, such as Manchester Day. I am enjoying working in the team environment as the staff are inclusive and interested in helping me get the best experience as an intern. From the internship I am hoping to gain an understanding of what it is like to work for a company in this way. I want to gain a greater insight into opportunities in this area, particularly for a company with such great connections to the arts and charity sector.
