We got in touch with some of last year’s Manchester Historian team and found out what post-undergraduate life has brought them…

old team

Florence Holmes, co-creator of the Manchester Historian and one of the editors from last year’s team kept on rolling after University has ended. Just nine days after completing her degree she started a twelve month internship at the Students’ Union. Some of her highlights have included running around the Union dressed as a penguin during elections and managing the café during Welcome Week without any major catastrophe!

Jemma Gibson, the prior head of marketing for the Historian also continued in a Manchester University environment. Currently, she is the Venues Management Intern at the Students’ Union, working as the assistant manager to the busy cafe and bar. From September she will be on the prestigious TK Maxx buying graduate programme.

Another prior editor of the Historian, Juliette Donaldson, has also gone on to post-University success. She is currently working as an administrator in a busy secondary school. In between lesson cover and pastoral care she has also managed to find time to coach the cheerleading squad!

It gives us great pleasure to know that last year’s team have gone onto great things.
