I'm an experienced digital professional, with a wide-ranging set of skills from writing and editing, to CMS management and integration to the management of multi-platform and multi-region projects. As a guardian of the English language, attention to detail and the ability to communicate clearly and concisely across any organisation are among my assets, while also managing to stay focused across a range of projects simultaneously. I'm committed and always open to new ideas and have proved versatile and adaptable in every environment I've been lucky enough to work in.
Within my time at Discovery, I've done project management, become a multi-CMS super-user and trainer, written and edited content for a consumer-facing website, contributed at all levels of projects including budgets, planning, user experience and product development,
At varying times, it involved: writing investment and finance news; coordinating newsletter sends; setting the news agenda; sub-editing internal and external copy; helping with the re-design of two websites; managing two online editors; compiling statistical reports and helping to tailor editorial focus on the back of those; testing, training and compiling a user guide for two new CMSs; working with sales teams to implement campaigns (including ideas to enhance these); suggesting feature content for editorial and TV; investigating SEO and looking after social media output.
From editing and uploading externally produced copy, the role then evolved into a team leader position. Alongside those management responsibilities, the role involved: writing and editing news and blog content; testing a new CMS before implementation (including creating a user guide and carrying out training); liaising with sales teams to ensure suitable commercial opportunities were created and contributing to commercial and marketing activity.
