Catherine MacGillivray

Communications Professional, Writer & Editor

Location icon United Kingdom

I have almost 30 years' experience in journalism and communications in the UK and the Caribbean. Most recently, I've been employed by Government Information Services (Communications & Marketing) for the Government of the Cayman Islands (a British Overseas Territory) in the British West Indies. A trained journalist, I worked in news for the first half of my career, before moving into features and copy writing, editing magazines and other special publications, then transitioning to communications. During that time, I've specialised in a number of subjects, including homes & gardens, travel, government communications and speech writing. I also enjoy photography.

Please see the following examples of my work from the past few years.
