Working as part of the in-house advertising and design team, I was involved in the management of the online portfolio site, the creation and amending of company literature, such as brochures, brochure inserts and orientation guides, of client recruitment campaigns, A-Board posters for Search offices and clients, ensuring mailers and adverts adhered to current recruitment legislation and the creation of any illustrations.
