"Always The Write Decision"


Clive West - who am I?

Let me introduce myself.

I am now an experienced and busy writer. My main work consists of careers journalism from both an employee's and an employer's perspective, but I'm also kept busy with education-related work, too.

My background is very much in management (financial, marketing and recruitment) so this goes along way to explaining my specialist topic areas.

Here is a brief overview of my CV/Resume:

  • Qualified civil engineer

  • Former senior estimator

  • Credit controller

  • Marketing manager

  • Company legal advisor

  • FE teacher

  • Company director of UK employment agency (we held details of 16,000 professional workers)

  • Private Maths and Science tutor

  • Former UK Schools Science Quizmaster (I wrote the questions)

  • BSc Civil Engineering (from just about the toughest university in the country)
    - Ex-director of UK-wide employment agency

  • At university, management was my best subject and I regularly scored 95%-plus in exams (average class mark was around 60%).

With regard to the writing side of my life, my samples should speak for themselves but here's the potted version:

  • Principal blogger for two major job and careers websites - one in the UK and one in the US

  • Regular writer for a US mining ezine

  • Writer of careers and course advice for a US university education website

  • Written a novel (about corruption) and a host of short stories, each with twist in the tail

Unfortunately a serious road accident on the motorway in the UK put paid to my career - that explains why I now write for a living.

So, now you know who I am, why not read some of my sample pieces and then get in touch? I'm always pleased to receive enquiries and I promise to respond promptly - hopefully with a smile and a 'can do' offer.
