New Marketing and Communications Specialist joins the DCC

Hello everyone my name is Al Wood, I joined the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) in August in the role of Communications and Marketing specialist.

Al Wood | 12 September 2022

My job will be to further raise awareness of the organisation and the services we offer, by engaging with stakeholders sharing success stories from the DCC and its partners across multiple platforms. 

Over the past four and a half years I’ve gained experience across digital marketing, communications and event management, while working for public health and higher education organisations in Wales and England. My tasks in these roles included website development, creating social media campaigns, and end to end event delivery for internal and external stakeholders.

Away from work I’m a huge Scotland rugby fan (a reason for my strong resilience developed over years of heartache) with a passion for cooking. I’m currently working on my first recipe book, which will be aimed at creating great tasting food with fewer ingredients.

I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues at the DCC and getting to know our partners.

If you would like to get in touch regarding anything related to marketing, communications or have a recipe you’d like to discuss, please email me at
