We sat down with Meg to find out more about their motivations and what they are looking forward to in this new role.
What’s your role at Apps for Good?
I’m joining as the new Digital Marketing Manager, working with Jess, our Head of Communications and Marketing, to spread the word about the incredible impact of Apps for Good.
I’ll be looking after our digital channels including social media and the website to help expand our reach, ensuring we provide more young people with these amazing courses and tools.
What were you doing before you joined us?
I’ve worked in communications for around seven years now, specialising in social and content marketing as well as video production. For the last four years, I’ve worked in the charity sector, I’m very values-driven and find great fulfilment in being part of a mission I believe in.
My last role was at Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), where I worked with a community of ocean activists campaigning to tackle the biggest ocean threats, including the climate crisis, overfishing, and pollution (the sewage!). Whilst working at SAS I managed the organisation's digital channels and ensured the campaigns reached the right audiences. I also supported live events and campaign stunts.
I love the creativity my work allows and the joy of seeing a campaign come to life and inspire people to take action.
What motivates you about Apps for Good’s mission?
I believe it’s our responsibility to equip the next generation with the tools they need to thrive. Apps for Good does exactly that, so I’m very excited to join the team.
Technology is going to be a huge part of the social and environmental change we need to see, so it’s vital that everyone has access to learning digital skills.
What are you looking forward to in your new role?
I’m looking forward to optimising our digital channels and creating content to share the amazing work being done at Apps for Good.
I’m also looking forward to working on the Innovate for Climate Change course, giving young people the tools to create solutions to tackle the climate crisis, and allowing them to envision the world they want to live in.
