I have more than 10 years’ experience as a content and communications specialist working with local, state and federal government agencies. To find out how I can support your project, get in touch.
Government agencies face unique challenges when it comes to content. There are more stakeholders, complex approval processes and a greater consideration for the political environment. To succeed, you need someone who’s seen it all before and knows what it takes to deliver your project on time and budget.
I have extensive experience in the government sector, working as a freelance government copywriter and in senior communications officer and senior content officer roles. This means I have an in-depth understanding of how projects are planned and delivered, as well as internal processes such as approvals and reporting.
My background in corporate communications means I can spot risk a mile away, and ensure your project is seamlessly integrated with other campaigns and projects across the organisation. I work closely with all stakeholders, from in-house communications and content teams to external suppliers and any digital or creative agencies involved.
I’ve written everything from light-hearted quizzes and inspiring website content, to corporate reports and Ministerial briefing notes. I’ve also developed communication strategies for local and statewide projects. I can apply existing tone of voice guidelines and style guides to your content, or create new versions for use across the organisation.

The work Sarah provided was on time and on brief - simply written, good tone, exactly what we wanted. Sarah has been really great to work with, was flexible, able to response to our many questions and patient with the delays on our end!
