Work history

About me

I have six years communications and PR experience both agency side and in house. Working across campaigns with both big and small budgets, and private and public sectors, which have been nominated for and won industry awards. Through this work I have lots of experience in communications strategy, media relations, social media management, copy writing, production, campaign management, budget development and management, editing, event management and crisis / issues management.

I first volunteered when I was 18 during my gap year, where I taught in Nairobi, Kenya. I've loved the purpose-led work I've done in my current role, and would love to do more of it on a volunteer basis. I've learnt so much in my career so far through working with big private and public sector companies, that I'd love to share that experience and knowledge through volunteering at companies or charities that could really benefit from it. 

What am I looking for

I'm hugely passionate about women's issues, young people, fighting poverty, sustainability, mental health and people in marginalised / discriminated against groups so would love the opportunity to volunteer in these spaces. My six years of communications experience would make me ideal for anyone needing communications, PR or social media support.
