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.

Professionally, Georgie has worked in digital marketing for the past four years with experience in copywriting, search engine optimisation, pay-per-click, and social media management. His clients have included high-end fashion brands, national transportation companies, financial and legal organisations, and charities. In September 2021, Georgie joined VSO as their Digital Officer allowing him to combine both his passion for marketing and international development.

Georgie also served on the core committee of the National Youth Engagement Network UK (NYEN UK), which he helped establish in April 2020 alongside 10 other volunteers. Here he focused on three main issues important to young people, including the climate crisis, mental health, and employability. Through this network, he was 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. For his work at the network, he was nominated for the ‘Impact Beyond Volunteering’ award at VSO’s Volunteer Impact Awards 2020. NYEN UK later closed in December 2021 after more than a year of successful operations.

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 the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. He now regularly campaigns on the importance of international development and protecting the UK’s 0.7% foreign aid budget.

In his spare time, 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 fan group of the hit TV show Fleabag which now has over 20,000 members.
