Oliver Benson, Head of Projects – Do-It Lead -YouthNet:
“I managed Julia for her final year at YouthNet. She was brilliant from the outset, supporting me in finding my feet in a new role. She was reliable, thorough in her work and easy to get on with. She managed her own workload well and developed some superb resources; especially for our self-harm section. Julia is ambitious, but in a really positive way; eager to develop her skills without being unnecessarily pushy. Professionally I was gutted to see her leave, but personally it was a good move for her. I’m pleased that we’ve remained in contact and I wish Julia the best with her future career.” (2006-2009)
Hannah Jolliffe, Editorial Manager at YouthNet:
“Julia is a brilliant journalist and was a great team member to have around. She coped well when I left the organisation to go on a sabbatical, and later on maternity leave. She did brilliantly with having two new managers in a short space of time; taking it in her stride and helping them to settle in at the same time as doing her job really well.
The fact that she looked after the three biggest areas on the site just shows how good Julia was at her job. She wrote brilliant new articles and was very good at researching and finding people to talk to, such as experts and young people. Julia always produced lots of good audio and video content as well.
I could go on about all of the brilliant work she did; the self-harm project, transforming the diary and rants section, helping to get the multimedia project off the ground. Also for being a great manager to the editorial assistant, helping him and the work experience students to develop their skills.” (2006-2009)
Gordon MacMillan, Editor of Brand Republic, Haymarket Publishing:
“I managed Julia for a year in her role as reporter and sub-editor at Brandrepublic.com and I was impressed at how well she adapted to writing for a B2B publication after her previous experience in broadcast and online journalism.
I was impressed with her ability to pick things up quickly, stick to deadlines and turn a dull press release into something far more interesting for the audience as well as finding off diary stories. I would recommend Julia strongly if you are looking for someone friendly, reliable with good communication skills and who will invest a lot in her role. I haven’t been surprised by her ability to easily find work on a range of publications successfully and am happy to recommend her.” (2005-2006)
Nigel Taylor, Managing Director Six TV – Managing Director Passion 107.9 fm, Milestone plc:
“I managed Julia for two and a half years when I was Managing Director for SIX TV The Oxford Channel where she came on board in the newly appointed position of Website Editor and Press Officer. As well as being in charge of the editorial on the newly created website, Julia also managed to build up the brand new Ceefax service. It wasn’t long before the director of the company Andy Craig whisked Julia off for two months to help him write the application to re-licence the channel, of which was successful.
Having proved she could turn her hand to something of a challenge, she then went on to write the application to set up a new television channel in Southampton, which was also successful. Julia continued to work for the channel as a broadcast journalist on the channel’s first ever news service and alongside Passion 107.9 radio station. I was impressed by how quickly Julia picked things up and her ability to get on with a range of tasks. She was also a pleasure to work with and got on well with all of her colleagues.”(2002-2004)
