About me

I have worked for over 15 years' in marketing and in this time I have worked in B2B and B2C across many sectors including: local and central government, working in environment and arts and culture, HE on research in university branding, and business development and training. 

With regards to transferable skills I have successfully run projects, campaigns and events, as well as having practical skills such as social media applications, Wordpress, Hootsuite, Hubspot marketing and Microsoft applications, to name a few.  

I haven't had a lot of time to volunteer as I have been a parent working full time, although I have recently started helping in my local community with those who are socially isolating.  I would like to expand my volunteering to help charities that are struggling with money and resources at this challenging time. It will also give me the opportunity to see how the charity sector works and gain a greater understanding of their issues and barriers.        

What am I looking for

People - disadvantaged and disabled, Environment, Animals - nature.

Campaign creation, content, press releases, print, social media.
