Charlie and Tamsin have been navigating the fast-evolving world of communications for more than 20 years.
First meeting at global digital marketing agency iCrossing in the late 2000s, Tamsin and Charlie built a team of content specialists and delivered innovative digital projects for a host of international brands. Their paths later crossed while working on the rebrand and communications for the pioneering healthcare social enterprise Here.
Charlie and Tamsin formed a partnership in the Spring of 2018, and named it Wilsome in September 2019.
Tamsin began her career as a researcher in BMRB’s respected graduate trainee programme. After learning data analysis and qualitative and quantitative research skills from some of the most experienced people in the industry she joined the pioneering online editorial team at the Electronic Telegraph (now better known as Telegraph.co.uk).
Tamsin went on to become editor-in-chief for start-up social network Dobedo during the first dotcom boom, before spending five years as editorial manager for the corporate communications team in the Home Office.
Later she led a team of copywriters, journalists and content strategists at iCrossing; and most recently spent nearly a decade working one to one with clients as a communications advisor and content strategist.
Charlie started out as a support worker in social housing before learning his trade as a writer in the early 2000s with the UK’s official online portal to higher education (HERO).
In 2007 Charlie joined the global digital marketing agency iCrossing, where he developed the UK’s offer in digital content strategy, and led editorial projects on accounts including Visit Wales, Marks and Spencer and MORE TH>N .
Following his interest in purpose-driven organisations, Charlie then spent five years with creative agency Neo, where he delivered brand strategy, digital planning and creative campaigns for clients including WWF-UK, Crisis, Global Justice Now and Here.
Before founding Wilsome, Charlie worked as an independent consultant and with agencies including Clearleft.
