I joined Tenders Direct in February 2020, bringing with me over 9 years’ experience in writing and creating content for a variety of appeals and campaigns. Applying my skills to public sector procurement, I ensure our resources are easily accessible, concise and most of all, useful. By analysing our unique insights and monitoring our sources for the latest market news, I also provide readers with up-to-date and relevant information.

In my free time I like to keep busy by finding new hobbies to challenge myself with. Currently I am making sure that my old easel and mountain bike don’t feel neglected, as well as attempting the odd bit of woodwork.
