Her professional focus, whether as an online editor, press officer or journalist, is to make information accessible and understandable to non-experts.
An experienced writer and editor for web and digital, she creates content in a variety of styles and formats suitable for different audiences. Content management, taxonomies and metadata are also key areas of her expertise.
Lucy joined What Works Scotland in June 2016. She provides communications support to colleagues and manages the Centre’s website and social media channels.
She previously worked at Skills Development Scotland where she edited and published online careers information for young people.
Before that she worked on content strategy and modelling for a new content management system for the University of Edinburgh, and created websites for the Student Experience Project, for student information and to promote the university’s commitment to the city’s festivals.
When Lucy was at Education Scotland (formerly Learning and Teaching Scotland) her projects included publishing teaching resources for STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) subjects, teaching resources for modern and foreign languages and adapting Curriculum for Excellence guidance to go online.
As an information officer, she provided a daily education news bulletin, ran an enquiry service and produced a printed and online magazine for teachers in Scotland. Her other experience includes spells as in local government as a press officer liaising with the media to promote council services, and as a local newspaper journalist.
