Where were you before joining Copy House?
I worked for a technology and SaaS company called PODFather (the POD stands for proof of delivery) as a Marketing Graduate.
Why do you want to be a copywriter?
I have been writing since I was six years old when I wrote my first short story. I always knew I wanted to be a writer of some sort (except for that short time I wanted to be a pop star).
As a copywriter I get to utilise my writing skills in a way that's both challenging and fun.
What initially attracted you to the position at Copy House?
Copy House has a very professional yet personal feel to it, and their MD and Head of Copy Kathryn was very friendly and clearly knew her stuff about content marketing and FinTech Being new to both FinTech and copywriting I felt like I could learn a lot from working at Copy House.
What are you most excited for in your new role?
Copy House has a very interesting mix of clients in fields I’ve not been associated with much before. I’m excited to learn about new technologies and start my life-long dream of a career in writing.
What will your new role involve?
As a copywriter my role will be to research, plan and craft engaging and SEO optimised content for Copy House’s clients and in-house blog.
Where do you see your career going in the next 5 years?
I want to continue to progress as a copywriter, always learning new things and expanding my knowledge. I hope to be working with exciting clients and topics that challenge and inspire me.
What’s the best advice someone ever gave you?
“Never let fear stop you from going after what you want”
This is something that my parents have taught me and it’s words I try to live by. I find that when I have doubts about something, it’s often just fear that’s holding me back. Being aware of that helps me stay on track and continue to work towards my goals no matter how scary it seems.
How do you spend your time when you’re not working?
Well, B.C (before COVID), I socialise with friends at cafes or bars, and go to the cinema with my partner, or hit the gym. Or just relax at home in front of the TV.
These days I socialise via video chat and go for long walks with a friend (socially distant, of course) if weather allows it. Netflix has become the main source of entertainment, and home workouts are surprisingly effective.
