Former Student and her Media Career

The A level media students had an interesting visit from ex student Emily Moreton this week. Emily studied A level Media Studies at SHSG and left 12 years ago. Since then she has travelled the world from Vietnam to the Galapagos Islands, raising money for our school chosen charity this year Little Havens and had an exciting and eclectic career in the media industry. She currently works as Data Project Manager at Global Media and Entertainment, the biggest commercial radio company in the country who own Capital, Heart, Classic, LBC, Smooth, Gold and Radio X.

Emily talked to the media students about how she approached her career as a 'climbing frame' rather than a career 'ladder', a really interesting analogy to make. She told us about the structure of her working day that involves a lot of remote working rather than commuting to an office everyday and the challenges and opportunities this presents. She was very complimentary about the good start SHSG had provided her with and it was lovely to see her again..
