Gareth Hancock

Gareth Hancock is our Senior Content Writer. He enjoys writing words and seems to do it well, a lot of the time.

Starting as a freelance writer in 2011, Gareth took a job as a copywriter at a digital marketing agency in 2014 before returning to the wonderful world of freelancing in 2017 with the creation of his one-man, shed-based agency That. Content. Shed.

His experience in content creation for global businesses led him to House of Content where he is a valuable member of the team, producing content for clients across multiple industries.

Before becoming a words man for hire, Gareth had various “proper” jobs in his native Teesside that typically involved carrying heavy things. His success in writing is as a result of hard work, passion and a dedication to the craft. And probably a bit of luck.

As is the deal with bios, Gareth wrote this in the third person. It’s like he wasn’t even in the room.

Alex Hill

Social Media ConsultantCambie + Co

Alex Hill is the Managing Director of Cambie + Co., our social media partner agency.

Cambie + Co. was founded when Alex decided to take a big, giant leap into the unknown waters of entrepreneurship. Before Cambie + Co., Alex was a dedicated academic working tirelessly to complete my A levels and score a spot in one of the UK’s top universities. She did exactly that, and in September 2016, Alex moved to York. Two months later, she handed in her ‘Discontinuation of Studies’ form and never looked back.

In between leaving university and founding Cambie + Co, Alex was working a number of part-time jobs and eventually landed a full-time job, with the aim of maybe finally finding her passion. It didn’t take long for her to realise that passion is social media marketing.

Cambie + Co. approaches social media in the same way that you approach your business: with clear goals and a plan. No two businesses are the same, so why should your social media be either? We get to know your business – from top to bottom, and the ins and outs – so that we can tailor your social media to your growth goals, your business requirements, and most importantly, your audience.
