Why I do what I do
I became a freelance copywriter in 2010, after 10 years of working in marketing and communication roles within the public sector. These roles were in higher education, leisure and tourism, and social care. You can see my full CV on my LinkedIn page.
I was successful and hard working but as I became more senior, I did less and less of what I loved: writing. So I eventually left my role as Web and Publications Manager for the University of Derby and set up on my own.
My track record
I soon found work through design and marketing agencies in Sheffield, Manchester and Derbyshire, as well as individual clients. I've gained a reputation for being thorough, creative and reliable - a rare combination. I've been lucky enough to write for a wide range of sectors, including:
- education and training
- creative industries
- travel and leisure
- health and fitness
- social care.
I write for almost any format: websites, blogs, content marketing, email, brochures and printed material, advertising, social media, press releases (you get the idea!) I have even written the odd video script.
