Hi, my name is Zoe. I recently relocated to the UK from South Africa and am looking for a copywriting/content assistant/photo desk job in London ( I live within commuting distance of London).
I studied for a BA degree in History and Film Studies at the University of Cape Town, graduating with a first-class pass in 2009. I have since studied photography for a full year, and have a diploma from the Cape Town School of Photography.
I have experience writing for both marketing and e-commerce. I most recently worked as a copywriter - creating product pages and blog posts - for an online healthcare retailer, and prior to this worked as a blogger for a marketing agency for 2 1/2 years. During my time as a blogger, I have written SEO content on a broad range of topics, including healthcare, travel, construction, logistics, finance, technology and legal matters.
I also have experience writing and editing email newsletters and have written features and advertorials for magazines in the past. In addition to excellent communication skills, I consider myself highly computer literate and have experience in Microsoft Office, Photoshop and have worked on two CMSes in the past (Daylight for Fodor's and Blue Park at Health and Care).
I have worked both remotely and in-house in the past, and find that I work well both independently and in a team. I thoroughly enjoy working with others and find that this is the best way to learn and grow.
I am organised and diligent by nature, like to be helpful and like to think I have a good sense of humour! My personal interests include fashion, photography, film, social history, genealogy, psychology, criminology and health and nutrition, and I am confident in my ability to write about these, as well as many other topics.
