Work with me

My availability

I’m currently in contract until May 2019.

I use an umbrella company for contracting, which protects you from IR35 duties. I also hold a Basic Disclosure Scotland certificate.

Let’s start a conversation

So what do you get when you work with me?

Content design

I take a holistic approach to website content. It’s not just words, it’s about the specific solution that will help the audience get from point A to B most efficiently. I like to work within multi-disciplinary teams to solve the problems we know about it, and reframe what we think we know so that we understand and solve the right problem. This could mean that the solution is words, pictures, videos, online lessons, or even calculators that show people how to solve the problem themselves.

Copy and substantive editing

I can highly recommend Claire for digital content, technical content as well as article and eBook writing. I have also yet to find a more thorough, constructive editor. Kate McCabe, copywriter, ghostwriter and author

I’ve helped writers make their technical subject matter more accessible to their audience

I like helping subject matter experts become their best writer selves. I’ll get to know your brand guidelines inside and out, and help you deliver on-brand, plain English content for your intended audience. I’ll also offer advice on the structure, format, logic, organisation, and flow of your content. I edit in Word with tracked changes, but I’m open to other alternatives (Google Docs, Adobe Indesign, etc). Just let me know what you need.

I can help you with your:

  • website content
  • technical documents
  • PowerPoint presentations
  • reports
  • eBooks
  • newsletters and articles

Content writing

Claire has the ability to quickly analyse and interpret, (sometimes quite technical) information and translate it into clear and concise content. Lauren Szylarski, Senior internal communications manager

Need me to craft content that doesn’t break your existing design?

Sometimes you need some more help getting your story out into the world.

If you provide the facts, I can help you deliver them clearly.

Some of the types of content I write:

  • articles and blogs
  • web pages
  • call centre scripts and emails
  • training and educational materials

Flexible delivery

I can edit or add content directly in Adobe InDesign (annual reports, editorial etc), Illustrator (wireframes, mockups etc), Photoshop, WordPress, MailChimp, or static HTML websites. I’ve used Adobe XD and Marvel Prototyping, and can generally pick up apps, content management systems, and programs quickly.
