Service Description

I can offer services in writing marketing content, copy and report writing, detailed proofreading and producing a raft of online content including reviews, listings and opinion pieces. I am also a highly competent administrator with wide-ranging office and computing skills.

My past experience includes working with the now global brand Groupon in developing a unique writing style for the UK website and I continue to write content for them on a freelance basis.

I was also involved in the development and establishing of the MyGroupon city guides, covering and reviewing places to go and things to do in 16 cities across the UK.

Outside of this, I have completed editorial projects for both the NHS and Farm Africa and am currently volunteering my time and skill with two social enterprises, Poached Creative and YH World which are both focussed on supporting and training young people in the community to allow them to break into the creative industry.

Prior to embarking on a full time writing career, I was a professional administrator for the likes of Cass Business School, City University, The Open University and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and over this period developed extensive computing knowledge including databases ranging from Microsoft Access to Salesforce, the entire Microsoft Office suite, Wordpress software, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Google Analytics and more.
