- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Pembrokeshire College Level 3 Interactive Media student, Charlie Humphreys has recently applied his talents to a campaign to encourage potential healthcare employees into the area.
As part of a wider recruitment campaign to attract medical, nursing and other healthcare professionals to come and work in the NHS in west Wales, Hywel Dda University Health Board approached Pembrokeshire College with an opportunity for a creative student to participate in some of its local recruitment campaigns.
Through a successful partnership arranged with College Lecturer, Denys Bassett-Jones, Interactive Media student Charlie Humphreys became involved in the campaign by creating promotional videos focusing on occupational therapist and physiotherapist roles within the Hywel Dda area.
Sally Owen, Strategic Resourcing Manager at the University Health Board said: “This is the first time our recruitment campaign team have worked with the College and we are delighted with the videos Charlie produced for us, which will positively support our recruitment campaign activities locally. We are very grateful to Denys and Charlie for the opportunity to work collaboratively on the campaign. They are excellent ambassadors for the College and the quality of the work provided by Charlie has been inspiring.”
After completing his course at College, Charlie will go on to study a degree in Film at Bournemouth University and was pleased to have gained the experience of working on a live brief, “I recorded four films in total including interviews, background shots for stills and adding English subtitles to the Welsh language films. I’m currently finishing my final branding project at College and will be working at Camp America over the summer before I go to uni.”
