Editing, Writing and Transcription Specialist
In four (and a half) words: flexible, collaborative, efficient, can-do.
In only five years across the voluntary sector and central government departments, I have developed and implemented a range of national projects and campaigns in areas including marketing, public relations, campaign development, resource management, website development, project management and stakeholder engagement.
If it needs doing, I can do it. And if I can't do it, I find out how. If you need someone who is adaptable, methodical, determined and can hit the ground running, then I may be exactly what you're looking for.
