About me

I am currently the Web Editor at a medium sized international development charity. I work closely with other members of the digital team, visual team and wider communications team. We have a hub and spoke model for our digital work so I have a lot of experience in being an internal advocate for digital and in talking to less experienced members of staff about digital technology and best practice. I have also previously worked on social media and emails, writing copy for offline and online products, fundraising and writing and pitching press releases.

Outside of work I have been on several executive teams for events, such as a folk festival, and groups such as dance teams. I have taken on the roles of chairperson, workshop facilitator, publicity officer and secretary. I have also been a trustee for two small charities in the past - one international volunteering (where I led the process of being ratified as a charity) and one youth politics group.

I am diligent and hard-working and would be fully-committed to any trustee role I was involved with.

What am I looking for

I am happy to consider a variety of roles. My passion is international development although I would be interested in looking at other types of charities. I am happy to share my experience in digital communications, fundraising and volunteer recruitment.
