“I hired Jo to join a pool of temporary staff […] to assist with our work load management over part of the National Portfolio Organisation period. Even though I principally hired former members of staff, Jo was one of a handful of freelancers I recruited who were new to the organisation. Jo came highly recommended from senior members of staff and her breadth of expertise spanning across the sector in terms of type and scale of organisations and art form was apparent from the get go.  The reasoned and vigorous approach Jo had in both learning a new process, applying her external experience and delivering project specific work in a timely manner proved invaluable – and more importantly, for me, Jo was a pleasure to work with.”

“Jo works in the capacity of social media manager for English Folk Expo – the annual showcase for folk, roots and acoustic music, held in Manchester.  She has proved to be organised, thorough and forward-thinking, but most of all has proved to have a real feel for creating a successful online presence which is inclusive, welcoming, portrays the right message and takes time to ensure it is well-informed and timely.  I would recommend her work to any organisation wanting to upgrade their interaction and engagement with the public!”
