I must have one of the best jobs at More Partnership. With my marketing hat on, I’m right in the centre, coordinating our communications – internally and with clients – making sure we’re on top of the latest trends and addressing the issues of the day. That might be scouring the news for hot topics to blog about, celebrating a client’s success or developing our next booklet. It can be challenging, it’s usually exciting, but it’s always fun.

The other half of my role deals with information and analysis. That might be using our time-billing system to develop reports and drive our business plan, or it could be analysing years of feasibility study data to identify trends, bust myths and, ultimately, advise our clients.
