For the last 18 months I have worked as an independent film producer and had the demanding role of arranging TV/Radio/Press interviews, travel etc. I generated £1.5 million worth of free advertising for a small independent film company over an 18-month period and had to be highly organised and focused. A huge part of my workload has included research/analysis for two documentaries and I have devoted a large amount of time to blogging and linking within relevant social networks and sites.
I have worked as Editor for 22 years (within the legal sector) where I was responsible for structure, design, budgets, advertising sales, liaising with specific authors and acquiring/editing and sizing content right through to print and distribution. I managed a small editorial team and worked closely with a professional membership board to make sure that the content/design/advertising ratio etc was targeted, relevant and created the magazine as a useful source of reference that was kept within legal offices as an information tool. It was also part of my responsibility to design, coordinate and market annual conferences exhibitions and regular seminars nationwide for the legal financial sector.
I have a flexible but focused approach, enjoy working towards goals, respond well under pressure and I’m told I have a great sense of humour. I'm happy to work on my own initiative but even happier to work as part of a team at all levels and ages. In both previous positions I was responsible for the development and content of the companys' websites.
I'm now keen to offer my skills and services on a freelance basis.
