What our staff say

Daniya Kayani, Digital Content Officer

To most people my age, the opportunity to intern at your local council doesn’t seem like a very exciting opportunity to them - but I welcomed the opportunity with open arms.

Having worked at Slough Borough Council as a Communications Intern during my university studies, I was thrown into the fast-paced environment of public relations and I loved it. Now, I work with the council as a Digital Content Officer and aim to create a digital media presence amongst my other responsibilities.

Working for SBC has allowed me to combine my creativity and tech savviness to help communicate with residents in new ways. No two days are ever the same for me as there are always opportunities to personally develop and continually learn. From social media content creation to video production, you can find me tucked away editing with my laptop, or out in the area with a camera and tripod in tow.

I’m always engaging with the community through my work and I genuinely enjoy seeing the work I do, or contribute to, have an impact on my local community. Whether that’s capturing images of Slough in action or learning about and helping share the incredible stories of the people of Slough.
