The Effective English Company was founded in 2013 by Ali Marsland, a communications specialist. Ali wanted to create a way to provide an extra pair of hands for organisations in need of communications support on a totally flexible basis.
Before setting up The Effective English Company, Ali worked in communications roles for companies including John Lewis and two NHS organisations. She also spent a year working in Sudan.
The company now includes a team of ‘word warriors’ with expertise in writing, design, admin, print, photography and more. Initially supporting NHS teams across the UK, we now work with large and small companies in industries including healthcare, local authority, financial services, business support and travel.
Based in several locations around the UK, we work remotely and use a range of technology and software to keep in touch, manage our projects and make sure we’re always on top of everything. So wherever you’re based, we can help.
Ali and her team of copywriting talent are one of those rare finds that any organisation would wish to make. I’ve been particularly impressed with their ability to distil corporate jargon and create highly accessible, flowing, client-friendly copy that hits the brief each and every time.”
