About me
I'm a well-organised, adaptable and unflappable professional with bucketloads of experience in editorial production and sub-editing on a variety of publications and platforms. In my previous role as Production Hub Director for Time Inc UK, I took on a hugely challenging position at short notice and successfully brought together the production process for three very different brands with three separate editorial teams, ensuring it all ran smoothly, on deadline and on budget. I've proved to be an effective manager and a team player with strong communication skills who enjoys working collaboratively with colleagues and clients at all levels.
