Tamsyn Wymer is Social Media and Events Coordinator at African Children’s Fund,
a UK charity working to break down the barriers preventing African children leading happy and fulfilled lives. Tamsyn’s role – which she has held since September 2011 – focuses on digital marketing, events coordination and fundraising.
Previously, Tamsyn worked at Swets Information Services for almost 14 years in a variety of customer service and commercial roles. Swets is an international professional information management company, acting as a conduit between libraries and information providers. At the point of leaving the organisation, she was Commercial Director for UK, Ireland and Sub-Saharan Africa, responsible for around 20 sales and marketing staff as well as commercial activity and strategy development in those regions.
Since taking on her role at African Children’s Fund, Tamsyn has created successful online social media profiles with almost 1,200 Twitter followers and 250 ‘likes’ on the organisation’s Facebook page. She has also been instrumental in rewriting the charity’s website, ensuring brand consistency across multiple platforms and engaging a growing supporter base with the introduction of a monthly email news digest.
Tamsyn is driven by being able to say: “I am making a difference” and her role within African Children’s fund reflects that.
