Laura Storr - Head of Corporate Communications, CAFOD
"I have been working with Vicky since we were colleagues in the communications team at CAFOD more than ten years ago and I am delighted that I am now able to commission her as a freelance writer and editor. Over the past decade, Vicky has written and edited numerous publications for CAFOD, both online and offline - from annual reports to news stories to fundraising appeals. She has an excellent understanding of development issues and a real talent for crafting compelling human interest stories. Working for CAFOD, she has travelled to South Africa, Bangladesh and Brazil with a photographer to bring back engaging stories for our supporter communications, which she did with great sensitivity. Vicky is able to get on with everyone, from children in the favelas of São Paolo to MPs and Cardinals! That's why we chose her to write the stories for CAFOD's flagship 50th anniversary publication 50 years: 50 voices! I can't recommend her highly enough."
Susanne Mors - Senior Communications Officer, European Cultural Foundation
"Vicky has been working with the communications team at the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) since 2011 as a freelance writer and editor. During that time, her services have been absolutely invaluable. She has been involved in numerous projects - from writing web stories to editing flagship ECF publications such as the Dwarfing of Europe, our annual report and our monthly eZine. In 2014, she reported from the prestigious Princess Margriet Award event in Brussels for our web team. And in previous years, she has also reported on ECF events in London. Vicky is always a pleasure to work with, very reliable and her work is of an unfailingly high standard."
Emma Wood - Direct Marketing Officer, UNICEF UK
"Vicky has been writing copy for UNICEF's Childmatters supporter magazine since spring 2013. She brings stories and issues to life in a way that conveys UNICEF's work to our supporters in a very sensitive and engaging way. She is a delight to work with - always turning articles around on time and on brief. I have no hesitation in recommending her."
Marije Brouwer, Communications Coordinator - SOMO (Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations)
"Vicky has been working with SOMO since 2007, when she came on board as a freelance writer to write the copy for our MakeITfair campaign. Since then, she has edited literally dozens of documents for SOMO - from reports to press releases, as well as helping to draft our house style guide. Earlier this year, she also collaborated with our researcher Pauline Overeem to write a chapter about the GoodElectronics Network for a book due to be published by Routledge in 2015. Vicky is someone we know we can turn to when we need something turned around quickly and to the highest standards."
Vicky Langley - Communications Executive, Cambridge University Press
"Vicky has worked with Cambridge University Press since 2013 - writing and editing press releases and web stories for a global audience. We have been very impressed by her ability to cut through the complex information we often present her with on a range of different topics. She is great at distilling information down into an easily digestible and highly readable format, often with very short lead times. The combination of journalistic skills and editing experience makes Vicky a very valuable resource for our team to call on."
Georgia Elms - Chairman, WAY Widowed and Young
"I have been working with Vicky since I became the Chairman of WAY Widowed and Young in 2011 and during that time, she has become an incredibly valuable asset for our charity. Not only does she edit our quarterly printed newsletter with great professionalism, she also writes our monthly enewsletter. She has written the web copy for our fantastic new website and translated all my thoughts wonderfully! Since early 2014, she has also been working as our press officer. During the past year, we have seen our coverage increase significantly with articles about WAY appearing in publications ranging from The Guardian to Good Housekeeping and The Sunday Times. Vicky is extremely passionate about her work and always does a fantastic job, whether she's editing, writing, liaising with journalists or liaising with WAY members. She puts up with me - helps me to keep to print deadlines, is extremely patient, flexible, reliable, enthusiastic, proactive and 100% committed to what she does. All in all, she is a great pleasure to work with!"
Julia Ravenscroft - Communications and Funding Manager, Eurodad (European Network on Debt and Development)
"Vicky has been working as a freelance editor for Eurodad for the past two years and since then she has become a highly valued resource for our team. She has copy-edited and proof read dozens of reports, blogs and enewsletters for us, often at short notice. She is very flexible - ensuring that our deadlines are met - and is always professional. She has a good eye for detail and a flair for cutting through jargon to make copy more accessible and readable. We are delighted to have her working with us."
