How does it work?


Tell us you want to be involved

We'll ask you some questions about your expertise and preferences, and get to matching you with our charities and projects.


Together, we discuss the brief

We'll send you a brief and you can ask any questions. If you want to pass, you pass. If you're happy we take the next steps.


We introduce you to the charity

Most of the projects are for remote work. So you 'meet' by phone/ email/ conference call. Finalise any details, agree timeline and then get cracking.

Let's get started

Who are we?

Founder Lucy James believes that connecting marketing professionals with charities is a really effective way of helping charities to achieve their end goals. It's also a great way to explore your professional capabilities and apply them in a fresh context.

Lucy volunteered with an orphanage in Thailand some years ago. She played games with the children and chopped veg in the kitchen. But she also found herself using her 9-5 skills.
During those first weeks, and the following months back at home, Lucy helped to develop the orphanage website and social media profiles, and broker new marketing partnerships.
All of those activities drove more volunteers and more funds to the orphanage - major goals that Lucy had never expected to be able to help with.

This is the purpose of Connect Create Complete - to provide those opportunities for more professionals and more charities.
