bid reponses to invitations to tender
rules and entry forms
business studies for overseas students
radio bulletins and adverts
My strength is in analysing and understanding your message - however complex - before I try to write about it.
Area Covered: Oxfordshire and surrounding counties
Work Experience Summary: My largest contract has been with EuroFuelTech Ltd, producing technical manuals for making biodiesel. This involved clarifying the copy of a chemical engineer and making it useful for a lay user. The manuals included an Owners Manual, User Guide, General Guide and Manuals for peripheral equipment. Biodiesel is a precise and dangerous process and writing the manual required a variety of demands and skills.
I have also written bids for Amey Infrastructure Services Ltd, which include technical and procedural details, mainly relevant to road maintenance. Recently I have written the copy for Business Link West Midlands’ Business Fears campaign (billboards, radio, mailers and press), for Carestream Health (an advertorial).
My experience is supplemented by many years writing and presenting radio scripts on scientific subjects, and by straight A grades for every paper in my university course (maths and physics / chemistry).
Education Summary: My 2:1 BSc in mathematics and physical sciences included A grades for every paper of my degree course (including 1st year).
