Hetty Meyric Hughes founded Scroll 2004, providing services primarily to government agencies.
Scroll quickly built a reputation as a trusted supplier of web writers and editors. We were accepted onto the Creative Services framework at the Department for Education in 2004, and by 2005 had over 10 clients in that department alone, while expanding to other areas of central government. In 2010, Scroll were among the 10 creative services agencies that founded the Creative Choice consortium framework.
Scroll’s network of associates
Scroll has built a talent pool of over 200 Scrollies who have been trained in best practices and common methodologies.
Generally, 50 to 75 of them are engaged in projects at any one time. Many are based in London, but we have Scrollies working in other parts of the UK and can accommodate most regions as well as countries outside the UK.
Scroll’s central team
Padma Gillen has been involved with Scroll in various ways since 2008. After leaving GDS where he was head of content, he joined Scroll as a partner to develop Scroll’s training and consultancy offer.
In 2015, Alison retired from Scroll and internationally recognised content strategist Rahel Bailie joined our senior management team as Chief Knowledge Officer. She set up the content strategy training courses and the Content Seriously meetups. Rahel was recently nominated as one of the world’s 25 most influential content strategists.
Scroll has a small central team. Beck Thompson provides project and account support. Angela Moore handles Scroll’s own content, including the blog and newsletters. Nadia Bennouna manages all office duties, and is a specialist in on-boarding, certification and security clearances for Scrollies. There is further back-office support for invoicing and admin.
