Let's start with the easy stuff. I'm Kath Young, and I'm a freelance digital marketer and copywriter from Manchester, UK. I work with digital agencies and businesses who need plug-in marketing support and/or advice. Before going freelance I worked for ten years in sales and marketing roles across a range of sectors, private and public, from manufacturing and FMCG to education and charitable organisations. Feel free to check out my CV, if you're that way inclined.
I have an MSc in Digital Marketing and got a 1st, which I was pretty pleased about. Shortly after, I was also promoted to Head of Marketing at the Business and Law School at Manchester Metropolitan University. Brilliant! I had a great time there and built an amazing full-service in-house marketing team, I learnt bucketfuls and really loved my job.
The only niggle I had, was my life-long dream - to travel and sail around the world. So long story short, but in 2018 I did just that. I sold-up, shipped out (literally, I bought a boat) and now I'm working freelance and sailing around the world as I do it. You can find out more about the sailing here, but ultimately I work hard as a freelancer to keep both dreams alive. I pride myself on solving problems, achieving results and securing repeat business from happy clients.
