About me

I have been managing the branding, campaigns, blogs, website copy, SEO content, PR and social media for over 5 years and have specialised in content for 7 years. Over the years I have worked with various teams to create the best marketing plans for their part of the business including guidebooks for the revenue teams, helping to get TrustPilot reviews for customer services and creating sales material for the teams. I have always worked closely with a graphic designer and have managed a CRM Manger, designer and a team of content writers. In my previous 2 roles I have also been the primary contact for the PR and SEO agencies for all sign offs and ideas. I am passionate, driven and I love to get great results. I work hard to try and get the best out of the team I’m in or I manage. I love a good brain storming session, and I’m very confident in trying new ideas and encouraging my peers to share theirs. My biggest passions are travel, writing and Yorkshire tea. I am always pushing myself further in my career and I am looking for my next role to be full of exciting challenges.
