Web Publisher for the Technology Strategy Board (since January 2013 to July 2013):
 
Technology Strategy Board (now InnovateUK)
The Technology Strategy Board is the UK's government-backed innovation agency designed to accelerate economic growth by stimulating and supporting business-led innovation.


I was part of a core team responsible for creating and managing content for the corporate website for the UK government's innovation agency. I also helped to develop the organisation's social media strategy.

I was instrumental with the redesign of the site when it was migrated to a LifeRay CMS platform. I helped populate content, find appropriate images, capture bugs, prioritise tasks (in JIRA), suggest development solutions, test user journeys and co-ordinated between the project lead, editorial and design teams to ensure a smooth transition for on-going users of the website.
