In this workshop Liz Gadd, Co-Founder and Recruiter at Moxie and Mettle, will share with you useful hints and tips gained through 30 years experience placing freelance and permanent marketing, PR, creative and digital professionals.
Liz looks at CVs, LinkedIn, direct approaches, and offers general hints and tips about how to get the right work for you. It’s real-world career advice with plenty of knowledge to share about what it’s really like and what really works in finding freelance work with clients and new permanent or contract job opportunities.
You’ll also learn how to create a perfect 10-second introduction when talking to prospective clients and new potential employers.

What will we cover?
- What potential new clients and employers are looking for in applications and approaches.
- How to find and meet the right people.
- How to find and approach the decision-makers.
- Some honest facts about salaries, day rates and charges.
- Views on flexible hours, remote working and part-time working patterns and how to approach this subject with clients and employers.
- CV and Linked In review and feedback
Where, when and what’s the cost?
For obvious reasons, this event will now be by Zoom or phone, so it’s an opportunity to have a one to one session with Liz, rather than in a group. You’ll get the full course, with the workbook, just in a slightly different format!
Due to the current situation, we’ve decided to offer this programme with no set charge. We’d love you to make a voluntary contribution to The 401 Challenge (see below), but of course understand that things are very difficult for lots of people at the moment, so maybe you could do that later in the year. No pressure from us or 401!
Your donation goes to The 401 Challenge, to help the amazing Ben Smith raise the funds for the USA Challenge. Ben will be running 50 marathons across 50 states in the USA, cycling between each one and all this in 104 days! During this epic challenge, with the help of schools, organisations and individuals all around the UK and further afield, Ben is aiming to raise £1million for two charities – The 401 Foundation and the Youth Sport Trust, supporting their work which uses physical activity to improve young people’s mental health and wellbeing. Previously, Ben ran 401 marathons in 401 days, finishing in October 2016 and raising over £330k for anti-bullying and mental health charities. Ben was recognised after his 401 Challenge and awarded many accolades including Pride of Britain and BBC Sports Personality Helen Rollason Award in 2016; you can see his story here BBC Sports Personality. Moxie and Mettle support Ben and the 401 team through pro bono recruitment, PR support and fundraising.
