Project Manager

For the 5 years between 2018 and 2023, I worked for the charity Effervescent as Creative Producer. Effervescent was a charity that co-created creative campaigns with young people. Effervescent’s core team was very small so my role covered a lot of ground. Areas that fell under my responsibility included:

  • Recruitment of participants
  • Consent forms
  • Health and emergency contact information
  • Transportation
  • Accommodation for residential trips
  • Risk Assessments
  • Liaising with parents, carers, teachers, social workers, mental health practitioners, and youth workers
  • Liaising with clients and partners
  • Managing budgets
  • Safeguarding (Designated Safeguarding Officer 2021-23)
  • Devising creative ideas
  • Producing music and audio
  • Filming location scouting and licensing
  • Recruiting freelance team-members such as artists, film crew members, animators, writers, actors, photographers, web-designers, choreographers, and chaperones.
  • Issuing contracts
  • Licences for child actors

Clients and partners included:

  • Barnardo’s
  • Become Charity
  • The Co-op Foundation
  • Forces Children Scotland
  • Plymouth City Council
  • Plymouth Kurdish Community
  • Save The Children
  • Young Minds
