Pamela Dixon

Copywriter and Proofreader

I’m Pammy, a copywriter and proofreader here at Denfield. I started fresh from university in May, so it’s been a big learning curve! Everyone here is wonderfully supportive and friendly though, so I’ve always felt at home.

The work I do is mostly copywriting, which can be anything from some simple email text to re-writing a whole website! Because all of our clients are so unique, it’s really important to get the tone right for each job, which is why doing research is always the first thing I do before I begin typing. I really enjoy learning about the different areas of the automotive industry, especially since I didn’t really know anything about cars before I started – my family all say I sound like a petrol-head now!

The inner (though some would say outer!) perfectionist in me loves the proofreading side of things, as it feels good knowing you’re helping to make everything as perfect as possible. It can be quite easy for little mistakes to go unnoticed, so you always have to be on high alert to catch things no one else will. That part of the job can be quite stressful, but it’s always worth it when you see the end product and know you’ve done a good job.

I’ve really enjoyed the variety of projects I’ve been able to work on so far, and my favourite has definitely been working on website copy for Think Design and Print, as it was great fun to come up with puns to describe the different services they offer.

I was born in Nottingham, but I’ve actually lived most of my life in Kent, which means I was quite astounded to learn that Leamington doesn’t actually count as the north… It seems a bit clichéd to say I never go anywhere without a book, so I’ll just say I always take two in case I finish the first!
