Below are the words of people who I have written for. I would be happy to provide email addresses should anyone care to verify.
I am the Head of Communications for a major NHS Foundation Trust and I recently asked John to provide the team with some support and write some press stories for external and internal use.
Despite being a stranger to the NHS John listened to the brief closely and produced a number of items that were fit for publication immediately and were able to be placed on our website and in our staff magazines.
It has been good to work with John. He clearly knows how to work with a brief and produce copy fit for distribution and publication and I look forward to continuing to work with him.
Head of Communications
Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
John is a talented and conscientious writer with the ability to create engaging, unique and shareable content. He comes up with thoughtful ideas and works quickly and efficiently.
I highly recommend him for any writing project.
Writer and administrator for Learn Freelance Writing
I had the pleasure of working with John over a period of 14 months. I worked closely with him to write engaging content about the programme we worked on for Everton in the Community. I have always found John to be incredibly professional, with an excellent eye for a story. Whether he was liaising with employers or meeting with individuals, John's approach and attitude was always impeccable, which aided him in producing quality content for a multitude of different audiences. John always goes above and beyond to understand the story and I would not think twice about recommending him to anyone looking for a quality journalist.
Marketing and Communications Executive
Approachable and easy to work with, John is full of ideas and always open to debating new sports topics that push the boundaries with fresh and punchy insights. His writing is full of personality - a great read.
Editor in Chief/Founder at Travelling Peach Magazine
During my time as Director of Communications at Everton Football Club, John was an integral part of a 12-strong Department which produced a wide variety of editorial products across both traditional and new media platforms.
Enthusiastic, attentive, smart and desperately keen to both learn and progress, John was a delight to work alongside - someone I could trust and someone who would always take both advice and criticism with a smile and a good heart.
During my 45 years in journalism, I have come to accept one fundamental truism - those best suited to succeed are those who are willing to work hard to succeed. John is talented and, perhaps more saliently, is determined to carve out a meaningful career for himself.
I am happy to fully endorse him - and if any would-be employer wishes to contact me, please feel free on firstname.lastname@example.org.
