I have worked with Jade over the last five years, at two different companies and across a range of different clients. Despite the variety of subject matter, the different communication needs and the sometimes bizarre requests, Jade has always brought creative solutions to the table. Her brilliant mind and great work ethic make for a powerful combination of strategist, concept developer, project manager and wordsmith.
Maryke Hough, Managing Director: That’s It Communications
I highly recommend Jade Mitchell as a candidate for employment. Jade was employed by That’s It Communications as Head of Content from 2010 – 2014. Jade was responsible for copy writing, social media campaigns and maintenance, Google Adwords and script writing.
In addition, she is extremely organized, reliable and works extremely fast. Jade can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done. She is flexible and willing to work on any project that is assigned to her. Jade was quick to volunteer to assist in other areas of company operations, as well.
Jade would be a tremendous asset for your company and has my highest recommendation.
If you have any further questions with regard to her background or qualifications, please do not hesitate to call me.
Dru Mincher, Operations Director: That’s It Communications
Having worked with Jade Mitchell for the past 3-4 years at That’s It Communications I have found that she has gone from strength to strength as time went on and has been an absolute asset to our Company.
She was employed as our head of content / copywriting / social media and fulfilled the role with the passion and vigor we expect from our employees. She also assisted on many other projects from a conceptual thinking point of view and has given strategic thinking + insight that was very valuable to both us and the clients. She was also thrust into Account Management of some of our more important clients to assist in the busier time and she showed great skill in this as well.
She is fast, reliable and an ‘out-of-the-box thinker’ which has been invaluable to us across multiple projects.
We here at That’s It Communications are sad to see Jade go as her presence will not only be missed on the work we deliver, but also in the studio by all her peers.
Martha van Zyl, Social Media Manager: That’s It Communications
Jade has an exceptional grasp of language, and a way with words that draws a reader in. She excels at different forms of writing, including articles, scripts, and copywriting. Her ability to think both creatively and strategically means that she is able to approach a challenge with a comprehensive set of solutions.
Jade is a great leader and teacher. She is patient, fair, and always curious – being keen to constantly learn more, Jade is a great motivator for her colleagues and peers
Sean Mackenzie, Key Account Manager: O’MAGE
I have partnered with Jade Mitchell a number of times on many different projects ranging from video script writing to MC scripts, to speeches. Jade’s work has always left me suitably impressed, the content that she is writing on is always well researched and she ensures that she develops a noticable understanding of the topic that she is writing on. Delivery times on the projects that we have partnered on have always been ahead of scheudle and the quality of work is always of a high standard. As a writer and editor, Jade can be highly recommended.
Martie Steyn, Marketing: AngloGold Ashanti
I had the pleasure of working with Jade in her capacity as Content Director. Her sharp wit, analytical mind and ability to grasp complex content makes her writing potent, and her execution engaging!
Annie Goetzsche, Video Producer: O’MAGE
I have worked alongside Jade, as a colleague and have utilised her talents on numerous occasions. She is extremely knowlegeable on a wide variety of topics. She delivers the product timeosly and is always willing to help out on rush jobs. Her grasp of the creative concept & technical elements always amazes me. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jade for further projects.
Sonya Culverwell, Creative & Strategic Director: Plugin
Jade is a very level headed individual in a crazy, fast paced environment. She brings calm and careful forethought to her content planning and is highly relevant in her content and recommendations.
Deirdre Maule, Communications Manager: 1Life
A vivid imagination coupled with an uncanny ability to write on any topic, Jade is a consummate creative spirit with a dry wit and a taste for irony.
I worked with Jade at Upstream where she took over my role as the Internal Communications Specialist and the copywriter on the 1st for Women brand. She tackled every task willingly and managed to achieve great things on both portfolios, implementing many positive changes on the Internal Communications landscape.
I would recommend Jade for any position that requires dedication, professionalism and a wry touch of humour.
