I’ve had quite a few different jobs in my 13 years working for non-profits in both London and Dublin. The job titles I’ve had include digital, campaigns, advocacy and communications. They’ve all involved learning various different skills but basically they’ve all been about two things: strategy and communications. What I’m good at is joining the dots across communications.
Whatever channels you’re looking at (online or off), I can help you work backwards from where you want to be to how you’re going to know when you get there and all the steps in between. In other words, figuring out what you want to do and then understanding the right channels to reach the right people with the right message.
It’s not rocket science, but I know from experience that when you’re in a busy organisation it’s sometimes hard to step back and figure out the best use of the resources you have. And even when you come up with a plan, you still don’t always have the time to get it done. That’s where I can help.
I’ve worked in-house for Refugee Action, The Children’s Society, Macmillan Cancer Support, Barnardos Ireland, One Family and Bodywhys – The National Eating Disorders Society of Ireland.
As a freelancer I’ve worked on projects for organisations including Bloodwise, Ethical Trading Initiative, Child Rescue Nepal, Fairtrade Foundation UK, War on Want, Liberty, ShareAction, NSPCC, Greenpeace International, New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI) and Women for Election.
As an Engaging Networks Account Services Accredited Partner, I can help you recruit and retain supporters through effective strategy, optimised campaign and fundraising pages and integrated emails, including email journeys that keep people engaged and encourage them to donate to your cause.
