Why Duncan

Honest, Persistant and Well Connected

What’s better than getting paid to do something you love?. I love the variety that comes with digital marketing. The industry is so fast paced, which means I am always learning, trying out new tools and continually developing my skills and knowledge. There’s no chance of getting bored in an industry that’s always changing and evolving..

I’m committed to the art and ethic of creating well-crafted content and experiences for meaningful communities and as you will see from my experience , I’ve worn a lot of different hats. I’ve run the marketing gamut. From e-blasts, public relations and web marketing to copywriting, video and print production, you name it, I’ve done it. I’m extremely motivated, organised and disciplined – you have to be to work by yourself – and, it’s important to note, never had a dissatisfied client.

While my official title at PRS is Digital Marketing Manager, in reality I’m known as the person who can do everything. Hats I’ve worn include Account Manager, researcher extraordinaire, telesales guru and my favourite – MI5 hacker - well that’s what some of my colleagues thought I was because I could get 'that' phone number or 'that' name nobody else could. It’s a close-knit company where everyone has to pitch in, and I thrive on the excitement of being involved at every level of every project. - Check out my Skills

No matter where I’ve been, I’ve produced topnotch work because I’m dedicated to making sure each and every piece stands out from the crowd. Whether it’s promotional work for external clients or internal corporate leave behinds, I pride myself on my ability to recognise and articulate a distinct voice for every project. And that’s not always restricted to the written word. I’ve also designed and produced unique promotional giveaways for various clients.

While writing is my passion, project management is my bread and butter. Keeping on top of projects and making sure all parts get to the finish line at the same time is one thing I do best. The ability to juggle projects and never missing a deadline didn’t just develop through my professional experience. I’ve learned to budget my time and my assets, and most importantly, I’ve learned to be flexible and to get things done.

I know what you’re thinking – that yes, I am the perfect person for the job, but there is no way you can afford me. But I’m not in it for the money – well, I am, but it isn’t the most important thing. I’m looking for a position where my contributions count and my efforts are appreciated – and hopefully a long-term commitment. Benefits such as a short commute and flexibility mean just as much as salary to me. The fact that you’re ten minutes from my house is a big plus – and you’ll never have to worry that I’ll be late! So let’s talk soon.
