Examples of recent work

People of the Streets -
event PR

From October 2017 to January 2018, I worked with the Nottingham-based not-for-profit organisation People of the Streets. Working closely with the Social Media Executive, I developed, led and implemented a public relations strategy to promote their photography exhibition 'Stories of the Streets', which displayed images of life on the streets from the perspective of those experiencing it first-hand. The campaign was a great success, which resulted in regional, national and international media coverage.

  

Sweat Pledge - 
Marketing and business development

In 2018 I worked with Guinness World Record-breaking cyclist Kajsa Tylen on business development and marketing for Sweat Pledge, an organisation which works to inspire people to get fit. The Sweat Pledge brand has a unique, fun and quirky tone of voice, which makes copywriting work for them particularly enjoyable!

Shorelight Education - 
copywriting

Since May 2018 I have been fortunate to be able to utilise my expertise in international higher education marketing for Shorelight, an organisation which aims to create life-changing experiences for international learners. I have recently supported Shorelight with copywriting, article writing, proof-reading and editing.

Dr Sophie-Louise Hyde,
The Student Wordsmith

Hayley worked with us to write the copy for a series of articles for one of our external clients and she did a fantastic job. She was efficient and really committed to getting the work done to deadline - no matter how tight!

 

Her communication was always of a high professional standard and she never failed to keep us updated on her progress. We're looking forward to working with Hayley again in the near future!

Charles Kerr,

People of the Streets

Hayley was a delightful addition to our team and did an exceptional job in her time working with us, helping to deliver national press coverage for our not-for-profit. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Selma Toohey,
Shorelight Education

Hayley delivers very quick turn around, excellent service and is able to localize content for an international market. It is a pleasure to work with Hayley and we look forward to a further working relationship with her.
