The Sensor City Comms team has been given a welcome boost, with the appointment of two Marketing and Events Officers.
Recruited through Liverpool John Moores University’s Internship programme, the new starters will be working within Sensor City for two days a week, alongside their full time studies.
Meet the Intern – Holly Lynch
Having studied Business Management for almost three years and with previous work experience in marketing, Holly was a stand out candidate for the role.
Upon appointment, Holly said: “As part of the internship, I’m hoping to broaden my marketing and events coordination capabilities within a growing organisation, as well as gain a better understanding of sensor and IoT technologies.”
Over the coming months, Holly will be taking responsibility for Sensor City’s Student Jelly sessions and will be helping to increase engagement with local students.
Meet the Intern – Natalie Robson
Natalie has gained in-depth knowledge into the marketing environment through her Marketing degree and her previous work experience in a marketing department, making her an equally strong candidate for this role.
Following her appointment, Natalie said: “This is a great opportunity for me to gain a greater insight into the working environment of an innovation hub and expand my event management experience at such a unique venue.
“Whilst here, I am also hoping to broaden my knowledge on the development and importance of sensor technologies, which are so vital in today’s digital economy.”
During her time here, Natalie will be overseeing the Membership Portal on the Sensor City website, as well as assisting with wider communications tasks.
Student Opportunities at Sensor City
