Web editor for the Fatherhood Institute

The FI is a charity that lobbies for government policy changes and supports professionals in care services to improve the situation of fathers.

All staff work remotely, so I got used to managing my time and taking initiatives.

Online community for professionals, dadsincluded.org:
Project-managed site build; designed database and helped with the technical integration; worked with coders to choose and improve the functionality; rewrote all functional copy.

After launch, I moderated the forums, answered user queries and managed the site’s back end in Joomla.

Main site, fatherhoodinstitute.org:
Managed migration from old site to new. Designed structure of new site. Helped build and integrate new database.

Wrote, edited and designed web pages in WordPress; wrote, designed and tested email newsletters in MailChimp; and managed database of 17,000 names; produced reports and advised on IT and web strategy; managed FI domains; dealt with suppliers.

Due to funding cuts, I was made redundant on 11 February 2011.
