About me

As an experienced marketing, communications and business development professional in the corporate world there are a vast number of skills that would benefit the right charity.

I have experience of creating and implementing strategic business development and marketing plans designed to drive brand awareness and financial growth, whilst retaining a strong culture and positive employee engagment. I would be well suited to a charity that is trying to grow their profile, develop their brand and increase fundraising.

I currently lead a team of ten, a team that I have built from scratch, so the ability to provide strategic direction and clear leadership is also a skill that could benefit the right charity.

Beyond my coporate experience I have been working with chlidrens charity SHS for the past two years. Supporting them in developing a new offer and creating a marketing and communications strategy to bring this offer to the marketplace. My work with them has given me a real insight into the role and committment of a trustee and has really been the motivation behind my search for a new role.  

Beyond all the corporate skills, my drive and committment is second to none and would arguably be the most valuable assett I would bring to the table.

What am I looking for

I'm looking for a role where I can really help to drive the strategic direction of the organisation. I'm used to working in fast-growth businesses and helping them to develop strategies to drive growth, I'd love to be part of a charity that has ambitious goals and is looking for passionate individuals to help them reach those goals. It's also improtant to me that I would also want to spend some time getting a real sense of what the day-to-day of the chairty is like, to ensure I'm too far removed from the day-to-day work the charity are doing.
