Freelance journalist and copywriter

2014-present

Working for a number of publications for health professional and general audiences, including The Nursing Standard, Training Matters, Scotland Now and Homefarmer, I have produced a variety of features for different readerships.

I produced a broad range of highly search engine optimised blog posts for small business websites, working for AdRank One, a copy writing agency.

Copywriting clients included those in the science and engineering sector, as well as everything from healthcare to fashion, culture and wellbeing.

The Children’s Society, digital content producer

2015–2016

Working with colleagues from across the organisation to develop blogs and other content for this award winning charity website, I excelled at turning jargon-filled, complex and policy focused prose into accurate, readable and searchable content for a number of audiences.

Initially starting as a temporary member of staff, my contract was extended in order to produce website content for a campaign on child sexual exploitation.

Responsible not just for content but also for project managing ongoing improvements to the website with our external developers, my role used my broad range of online and editorial skills.

RNIB, editorial assistant

2011-2014

I was responsible for writing features and news as well as developing and running the magazines’ web pages, social media and email newsletter communications. This was across three magazines, Vision, NB and Insight.

Features on clinical advances, policy, care and social work were frequently produced for the magazines, as were news stories on industry events and trends.

Not only did I frequently attend industry conferences and events I also played a key role in developing and organising the first ever NB live conference for eye health professionals.

Chemist and Druggist, reporter

2010-2011

When not heading to riot-torn pharmacies, or obtaining exclusive interviews with health ministers and the heads of major corporations, I fronted and co-ordinated investigations in teaching hours at pharmacy schools, the availability of sexual health services in pharmacy and the effect of the post code lottery on funding for pharmacy business.

Not only did my work garner national attention form the traditional media, I also developed an online community strategy for the magazine that saw my team win an AOP award.

Pennwell Publishing, production editor

2009-2010

Production editor for a small portfolio of PennWell’s B2B publications including Renewable Energy World, Power Engineering International and Cogeneration and On-site Power. I frequently attended industry conferences and produced news and features across the whole portfolio.
