As Exhibitions Manager is no longer viable, nor wholly representative of my role, we need to craft a new job title and job description; which has been complex and amusing.
“Exhibitions and Copywriting Assistant” – To whom am I the assistant? People will ask to speak to the Exhibitions and Copywriting Manager.
“Visitor Centre Interpreter and Copywriting Assistant” – Makes me sound like I know sign language or foreign languages, so let’s stick with the Exhibitions bit of the title shall we?
“Exhibition Organiser and Copywriting Assistant” – Hurrah! This seems to be our winner, but only after my boss seriously issued an off piste and outside the box suggestion:
“Look and Feel” – Yeeeeeeees, I am responsible for the look and the feel of what we show, and ensuring the correct tone in our communications. But it makes me sound like a pervert, or invites situations requiring intervention from the personnel team!
I know it's not been easy for my boss to sort this, but in some cases, I think he's had a bit of fun at my expense!
