Whitman 

I have a BA in English and an MA in Creative Writing. I have written pieces for gaming companies and have won several online short story contests. Throughout my career in the UK public sector I have developed my writing skills, preparing reports and assessments for a variety of purposes, including youth courts and child protection conferences. My work is always original, of the highest standard, on time and well evidenced. I look forward to bringing these qualities to your projects.

Experience

Senior Residential Care Officer

Oct 2010 - Aug 2012 (1 year)

Building on my experience writing reports in the youth justice sector, I was responsible for gate-keeping (i.e. proofreading and editing) reports by my colleagues. These reports were a critical opportunity to demonstrate our professionalism and the reports I wrote and gate-kept were always well received by partner agencies.

Youth Offending Team Officer

Oct 2003 - Oct 2010 (7 years)

One of the key aspects of this job was the preparation of high quality court reports to strict deadlines. In seven years, I never submitted a late report. Time after time, judges and magistrates commented on how thorough and well-written my reports were. In particular, colleagues felt they actually knew the young person involved once they had read my work.

Education

BA English

1996 - 1999 (3 years)

MA Creative Writing

2001 - 2003 (2 years)

Certifications

Certificate of Effective Practice (2010)

I completed this while working in the UK's youth justice sector. It covers many aspects of working with young offenders, including the importance of evidence based practice.
