I’m the Online Communications Manager for the Citizenship Foundation. That means very little as a) I’m rubbish at communications and b) we no longer have a communications team anyway.
My work involves: promoting our work online; designing, writing, editing and managing our corporate website; writing and upholding communications guidelines; listening and responding through online networks; encouraging and responding to journalists; optimising images; writing and drafting press releases and articles, for both online and print; supporting programme teams with web development, messaging and communications; talking knowledgeably about any aspect of our work (economic awareness, public legal education, our diverse programmes, etc); developing organisation-wide strategy; designing, writing and managing doingsmsc.org.uk; networking with the citizenship education community; designing and managing Democratic Life’s website; supporting Democratic Life’s communications; etc etc. All on less than a shoe-string, of course.
This blog has become very customised and I can’t be bothered to work on it any more. So – from March 2013 – I’ve deliberately chosen a simple, basic WordPress theme that I can keep updating safely. Some posts will suffer, as they were styled specially and that may now be lost.
I shall probably tweak the design a bit (I won’t be able to stop myself) but not too much.
