Profile

I am a skilled web content writer and blogger with a people-focused outlook. I have four years experience researching, writing and editing well crafted, engaging articles across a range of topics.

At the beginning of 2014 I was offered a job with the Western Cape Government, which switched my focus from writing to social media. It's not a position I would have imagined for myself, but it's proven a definite match for my relationship-oriented personality.

Current employment

Social Media Coordinator
Western Cape Government - http://westerncape.gov.za/
Present - Cape Town
Working for the Department of the Premier (e-Government for Citizens), my primary functions are monitoring the Western Cape Government’s brand sentiment online, responding to citizens’ queries on Facebook and Twitter and managing the province’s social media calendar. Initially the position had its roots planted firmly in client service and that remains an important aspect of my job. However the welcome addition of managing the social media calendar and writing daily posts to my workload has resulted in a role that's varied, interesting, creative and above all, fulfilling. Not a combination one would expect from government, but one I'm especially grateful for nonetheless.
