We caught up with Gemma Oldfield, a former undergraduate and postgraduate student, to see how she is getting on in life after University:
Design for Multimedia Degree graduated in 2011 then continued to study for a Masters Degree in Digital and Visual communications (multimedia) graduating in 2013. I achieved first class honours in both.
Following completing my first degree I gained employment at RTITB in Telford working in the Transport and Logistics Industry, as a course developer; creating interactive training material, I then progressed to be a Marketing Manager role and then onto a Product Development Executive.
I have recently moved to work for Drp Group an integrated creative communications agency and multi-channel production company, (https://drpgroup.com/) as a Digital Project Manager. I work within the highly talented and rapidly growing digital department delivering innovation and engaging digital solutions to a variety of leading brands.
Being surrounded by a vast scope of creative talent and enjoying going to work every day is very refreshing. I feel this role is what I have worked so hard for, I now work for a company that’s ethos is “anything is possible” and that’s what I have learnt throughout my studies at Wolverhampton.
My MA has allowed me to be more analytical on a day to day basis and has also taught me to think and challenge ideas in a more productive way.
