Area Covered: Yorkshire, London
Work Experience Summary: As a freelance writer and administrator, I have worked for a wide variety of companies and have learnt a wide variety of skills.
From the administrative side, I have worked in data entry for a large, UK based, examinations board. I have also acted as a regional administrator, dealing with schools and examinations in the North East and Central London. Additional experience includes arranging large conferences. This involved marketing to potential delegates, sending out relevant information (via email mailing lists and letter). I also have extensive customer service skills and am proficient in the use of Mac and PC. I can use all Microsoft Office programs, Adobe Creative Suite, Email, Oracle, the internet and many Mac specific and company specific softwares.
As a journalism graduate, I also have strong writing skills. I am able to write technically and creatively. I have a number of published short stories and articles in both national and local newspapers and magazines. These skills go hand in hand with excellent research skills and a strong understanding of the publishing industry (including marketing and advertising).
I find that combining the two areas enables me to have better variation in my working life. Also, both genres have a large amount of crossovers. In being a good writer, I am better equipped to communicate with clients (and potential clients) via email and letter. The administrative side has taught me excellent organisational skills which I can also apply to my writing work, which often deals with strict deadlines.
