Kirsten Mark

Areas of expertise:


I graduated from Cardiff metropolitan University with a 2.1 Degree, and three years of continued professional development. At graduation, I was recognised for leadership and my contribution to the course. As well as, an enterprise and entrepreneurship award during my final year. Throughout, I have been building my support network with local businesses on and offline, attending workshops around SEO and content writing, also keeping motivated through conferences like, Brad Burton’s ‘Now What Live’. My previous experience, along with my current freelance role within PR, Marketing and Design for local business Turn Lights On, I hope will provide me with a great foundation for a career in the creative industry.

I have been a year representative for three years running and just been awarded and recognised for my professionalism and leadership within this role, providing support for my wanting to be a part of Cardiff's creative community, sharing ideas and listening to feedback from others. Moreover, I have been certified for my networking activities in London and Cardiff and just finished my first 'Creative Connections' series at CSAD, whereby myself and Es George the careers service advisor here worked together to invite outside industry professionals in to have an informal conversation and network with current final year students. This was a success and will be continued on next year, hopefully with a longer term plan and investment put in place.

I have a keen interest for networking, as I love to meet people and here their stories and find out their 'Why?'. I am really looking forward to being a part of a wider creative community, when I take on my next role within the creative industry.

Please feel free to contact me, and discuss any opportunities you might have? Or, even if you would just like to talk creativity over a cup of coffee then I would love for you to get in-touch.
