our story

Hi there - we’re Jess and Laura, Founders of The Doers.

The Doers was created to be a flexible workforce. We’re not going to bore you with all the reasons why flexible working is for us, because it shouldn’t really matter. We believe that flexible working should be the norm for everyone, employees and business owners alike.

After years of working in agency and in-house, we could see that the way people wanted to work was changing and that the perks and opportunities of flexible working were there for businesses to grab, just as much as employees.

With more and more people working remotely and flexibly, there’s a new type of workforce emerging. A workforce full of talented and experienced freelancers all looking for projects to inspire and excite them. These people are a force to be reckoned with and we wanted to harness that.

Likewise, businesses need a more flexible marketing approach to support them through busy and quiet times. Flexibility to work with the right people when business is booming and to step back when business is quiet.

We realised there could be a better way of working. A high-quality alternative to hiring an agency, which doesn’t break the bank. Flexible to the core and without the hassle of finding and employing individual freelancers.

And so, The Doers was born – a collective of hand-picked freelancers working across the marketing mix.

our approach

By building flexibility into our marketing plans from the start, we’re able to work with the ebbs and flows of a business to get better results. We work to deliver just what you need, when and where you need it.

This approach allows us to work with some fantastic freelancers. We match our Doers to each project based on their skill set, experience and enthusiasm for the job - we find that people work better when they’ve chosen to.

The result - a flexible and engaged team when you need it. Jess and Laura there to set your strategy and a host of happy freelancers, delivering work they’re proud of.

our roles

As Chief Doers, we’re here to get to know you and your business. We’re great listeners, we’ve been in the game a long time and we know how to ask the right questions.

We’re thinkers as well as Doers, and will use our ideas, insights, experience and contacts to deliver a creative and impactful marketing strategy just for you.

Once we have our agreed plan in place we will personally allocate each Doer from our trusted collective and brief them to ensure that they are ready to hit the ground running.

Jess had a 3am light-bulb moment and came up with this little beauty, which we think sums it up nicely:

Jess is the composer
She comes up with the creative strategy, the direction, your sound.

Laura is the conductor
She lets everyone know what to do, and exactly when to do it, to deliver the perfect performance.

Our Doers are the orchestra
They get the job done in their area of expertise, pitch perfect every time!

Meet Jess


After 10 years working at agencies and in-house, I founded The Doers as I could see that the traditional agency model was flawed. My strength lies in being able to see a big picture strategy and then make it come to life with my creativity, contacts and digital know-how.

Meet Laura


From haircare to food waste, kitchens to charity, paint to condoms and almost everything in between - I really have worked on it all. My strength lies in using this experience to get deep under the skin of a business, matched up with my top-notch organisational skills to make it all happen.

who we work with

We tend to work with small to medium-sized businesses and purpose-led brands. We love working with founders directly and with people who are committed to producing great work.

If you’re a business that’s driven by a strong belief or backstory and a genuine focus on connecting with your customers, then we want to work with you to help your business grow.

Our approach to setting a marketing strategy is to always start and finish with your customers. We excel at getting into the mindset of any target audience and working out how to best reach and speak to them. We believe that this approach works at a strategic level across almost any industry. We then bring in Doers who know your industry inside out and have the best contacts and knowledge to activate our plan.

Does this all sound good to you?
