Georgie White is a 20-something year old writer, marketer, and volunteer who claims to be a ’90s kid’ but can’t really remember them. Proudly an ENFP-A Campaigner, he is idea-driven, imaginative, and would rather live in the world of a Richard Curtis rom-com eating ice cream with Bridget Jones, competing in late-night brownie contests, and dancing with Hugh Grant in 10 Downing Street while forgetting that the planet is dying. Just for one moment. Because 10 Downing Street IRL seems to be doing just that.
In 2019, Georgie volunteered on the International Citizen Service (ICS) programme with VSO in Zambia for three months. Here he lived with a host family and worked closely with community stakeholders, setting objectives and progressing towards United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. He now regularly campaigns on the importance of international development and protecting the UK’s 0.7% foreign aid budget.
Georgie also voluntarily serves on the core committee of the National Youth Engagement Network UK (NYEN UK), which he helped establish in April 2020 alongside 10 other ICS returned volunteers. Here he focuses on three main issues important to young people, including the climate crisis, mental health, and employability. Through this network, he has been able to reach hundreds of young people by supporting the delivery of free and accessible online events. Partner organisations have included the UK Youth Climate Coalition, Kooth, Bond, The Prince’s Trust, and many more.
Professionally, Georgie has worked in digital marketing for the past three years with experience in copywriting, search engine optimisation, and social media management. His clients have included high-end fashion brands, national transportation companies, financial and legal organisations, and charities. As well as this, he runs multiple unofficial fan pages on Facebook including Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Stacey Dooley which have amassed great followings and high engagement. Georgie also founded ‘Fleagbagism‘ – a Fleabag fan group with over 15,000 members.
