Investors In Young People – Writing case studies

Channel: Digital and print

Role: Writer

Key challenge

Case studies focused on the first employers in Scotland to be awarded the new Investors In Young People accreditation. By interviewing the employers, I was able to gain greater insight and present a comprehensive business case for seeking accreditation.

Where a video case study also exists the copy, which appears on their website, provides a different angle or more complete picture. Case studies were written to a standard length (500 word) and approval secured for publication.
