Steve Shaw

Senior Copywriter , Bishopsgate Copywriting Available for work

Contact details

After a career in the banking industry, mainly with the HSBC Group, where I spent several years in marketing and corporate communications roles, I opened my copywriting business, Bishopsgate Copywriting, in 2010. Following a couple of subsequent diversions back into full time employment – as Editor of “FX-MM,” a monthly financial magazine and then 7 years in the arcane world of risk management with a U.S-based industry association – I’ve recently come back to focus again on my copywriting business.

I work with companies of all sizes, mostly in the financial sector, as this is where I have core expertise, but I’m just as happy working with companies in other sectors. I’ve had, for example, a long working relationship with a German engineering multinational. My aim, always, is to help my clients communicate more effectively with their customers.

I write annual reports, award submissions, business plans, case studies, CSR communications, email communications, information leaflets, mailshots and flyers, marketing copy, newsletters, press releases, product brochures, speeches, training materials and website copy. I’m also happy to do policy drafting work, or to assist with RFP preparation, and with research and analysis work (white papers).

My skills include an understanding of SEO, and matching tone of voice to brand. I can create vibrant content, or refresh and enhance existing copy. I’m equally happy to do editing and proofreading work. I’m also a skilled interviewer.
