Senior account manager Laura looks after some of our biggest clients, helping them solve their challenges through words. After hours, you'll find her pumping iron or prosecco, depending on the day.
We’re a team of 30-odd people working together to find the words that shift the world. That’s our purpose. And while we’re a motley crew, it’s one goal we all have in common, whether we’re a few feet or a whole ocean apart.
The rest of the time, you might find us swapping book recs (okay, Netflix recs), helping out at literacy charities and sending a few too many gifs in our emails.

What we do (when we’re not working)
Our Summer and Winter Days Out have included whale watching, dragon boat racing, bread making, popsicle crafting and prosecco popping.
We use our annual volunteer days to promote literacy and education in our two hometowns.
Our monthly gatherings, events, and (often) crafts take the mandatory out of fun.
We all share the Writer qualities: love language, care about quality, mind the numbers, feed curiosity, and grow together.
The Writer team
The best way to get to know someone? Their favourite word. And if you’ve ever worked with us, you’ve probably shared yours. If you haven’t – start thinking. Chances are, we’ll ask.
Chloe is a senior project manager who loves getting her teeth into new briefs and meeting new clients. She's also a new mum who's hoping to someday build her dream family home.
Senior project manager Liv makes brilliant things happen without a hitch. During the week she laughs in the face of tight deadlines, while at weekends she points out cute dogs to anyone who’ll listen.
Associate creative director Emma is a writer, trainer, speaker and tone of voice creator rolled into one. Her fervent wish is that verbal and visual identity will soon stand shoulder to shoulder.
Katie-Rose is a senior creative consultant who loves getting inside the minds of clients, working out what they’re actually trying to say and making it more straightforward (and even fun).
Senior account manager Holly is full of tips – about language, tone and after-hours tipples. With her advice, you’ll soon be raising a fancy glass to a project well done.
On any given day, Charli is one (or more) of these things: consultant, coach, writer, trainer, tone of voice preacher and stands-on-big-stages speaker. Officially, she's our group creative director.
Dash diligently vets every visitor and closely monitors the movements of the London team. He enjoys napping on laps during team meetings - these days mostly at home while mum Charli is on Zoom.
Digital project director Antoine is transforming the way we work and the work we do, with measurable results. He loves crunching data almost as much as he loves riding his Honda Transalp.
As CFO, Bruce makes sure our numbers are as sharp as our words, and works with the board to shape our strategy. When he’s not working his magic with spreadsheets, he does a mean card trick or two.
Jennie is all things business development and marketing at The Writer. She's always on the lookout for new ways to win and wow clients, and is at her happiest surrounded by colourful Post-It notes.
Sally loves being a first port of call for our new clients and getting to the bottom of what they need. She also works behind the scenes to help make our weird and wonderful marketing ideas happen.
Fiercely inquistive and a bit of dreamer, account director Jack is fortunate to have such an intelligent team help deliver (impeccably) on his proposals. He loves eating cake with clients (or alone).
When Andrew isn't helping with financial reporting, he makes sure our people and suppliers get paid (making him our best friend), and that cash keeps flowing (making him the board's best friend).
Betsy helps to coordinate and schedule projects, keeping an eye on every moving part from start to finish. When she's not managing projects, she's (attempting) to move on a skateboard or yoga mat.
Account exec Chloe Davies has warm, gooey feelings about language. (Two words which incidentally describe her ideal cheese.) Clients soon come to share her enthusiasm.
Project coordinator Emma keeps things moving smoothly, with all the poise of the ballet dancers she admires. Chat to her about scopes, schedules and Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
Katherine is a word hound hellbent on finding the writer in all. As associate creative director, she brings a translator/poet’s eye to helping brands (read: people) use language with fervor and focus.
Tech zealous Zain is our digital coordinator. He starts his day thinking up solutions that aren’t even needed yet, because he’s fascinated in future-proofing the world of digital.
Management Accounts Assistant Kacper loves to work his mathematical magic on our processes. He’s an economics graduate and all-round numbers whizz with a background in financial analysis.
