Helping you recruit foster carers and adoptive parents

Why work with me?

teenager hiresBecause you need someone who understands the challenges you face

I’ve been helping organisations recruit foster carers and adopters for over 14 years.

Organisations such as Cheshire West and Chester, Surrey, Enfield, Sheffield, Oxfordshire, the HSE in Ireland, North Yorkshire and Isle of Anglesey to name but a few.

 

This experience led to me becoming a recruitment champion for the Fostering Network.

And gave me the insight needed to write a book aimed at potential foster carers.

All of which means I’ve gained a deep understanding of the fostering and adoption agenda. I understand some of the struggles experienced by organisations like yours. And I have delivered some very successful recruitment campaigns.

Because you want to make an impact in your community

I am a marketing communications professional with a specialism in recruitment. Which means I can help you:

  • identify your target audience
  • identify the best routes to your target audience
  • get your point across in a way that means something to your target audience
  • overcome objections and dispel myths
  • provide a strong call to action.
Because you need low cost solutions

I understand that budgets are really tight. That you need to do an awful lot with very little.

Because it’s just me, I don’t have the overheads that larger agencies have. That way I can keep costs down.

I partner with other freelancers such as designers to deliver a project or can work with your inhouse team if preferred.

I will be honest about what you can realistically achieve with your budget, upfront. So you can manage expectations accordingly.

Because you need a safe pair of hands

I am an experienced project manager and have delivered many complex advertising campaigns, print projects and research exercises.  I’ve worked with designers, printers, photographers, web techies, video production teams and clients with many stakeholders and am skilled at keeping them all focused on delivering the best possible result, for the agreed budget, within the agreed timescales.

I’m an experienced copywriter, well-used to translating complex and sensitive issues into compelling, accessible and engaging content. Whether you’re after short and sweet – for a Facebook post for instance, or detailed and informative – for a brochure, maybe, I’m your woman.
