“Sophie has performed various writing, editing and market research tasks for me over the past year. She is personable and prompt, always executing work to a high standard and according to the project brief.
Frankly, I feel I can breathe a bit easier when Sophie is on one of my projects because it is stress-free–no chasing emails, no missed deadlines, just good quality work delivered as asked.”

 Katie Rowland, Acquisitions Editor, Pearson


“Sophie has an incredible eye for detail and highly developed analytical skills. She was a reliable and proactive member of the team, and liked to keep on top of current trends and market developments. I would not hesitate to recommend Sophie to future employers.”

 Rachel Gear, Editor in Chief for Business & Economics, Pearson


“Sophie’s enthusiasm for publishing showed through in the standard of her work and she made a major contribution to the development of what was a new and very different list for Pearson. Sophie was keen to be involved in all aspects of the list from liaising with authors, working on design and pedagogy, market research, sales and marketing as well as general day to day admin. She was organised, but also keen to explore new avenues and ways of working. Having experience of the industry from both the inside and out, she will be an asset to any future employer.”

 David Harrison, Acquisitions Editor – Nursing & Health, Pearson


“Sophie showed great initiative in getting to grips immediately with complex projects and new software. She always hits the ground running. Her dedication to all tasks is impressive, as are her excellent editing, proof-reading, copywriting and IT skills. Sophie’s interest and knowledge of the latest industry developments will prove to be a real asset to any publishing house wanting to embrace new media. On top of all that, Sophie is a delight to work with! I recommend her highly.”

 Shirley Greenall, Publisher, Whittet Books
