Over the last few years I have been working closely with Alliance 4 Impact and a team of copywriters, to produce reports and plans for non-profit organisations in the humanitarian sector. In particular, we have worked together on several global, regional and country-level plans and reports for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
This type of work involves a wide range of activities, such as interpreting and rewriting long, complicated source materials, editing and polishing draft copy, incorporating key messages, interviewing report contributors, and selecting data for text boxes and sidebars. I was the editorial lead for a major copywriting project in 2022 – a client-facing role that required detailed planning, scheduling, quality control and team leadership.
I have also edited and written documents for the charity Oxfam GB, the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA), and the Riding for the Disabled Association.
