hiring-image

Since launching in January 2015, I have had an amazing, exciting and very very busy time of it, working with countless couples and developing the line of products.

I am now in need of a fabulous freelancer to come on board for a day or two a week to take charge of de Winton Paper co’s Marketing and PR.

Currently it is just me juggling the whole lot, so the person I hire will be pro-active, responsible and an excellent communicator, working closely with me. I am hoping for a conscientious, kind and warm person to fit in. Please note this is not a design role – I need someone who is commercially minded, self driven and has a natural ability to promote the business ethos and products.

I am having a new website built at the moment due to launch on September 1st. I am also exhibiting at the London Excel Centre in September – by far the company’s biggest wedding fair to date – so I feel now is the time to work with someone to create some momentum and buzz.
