Hi, my name is Jake Butler.

I built this website in order to showcase some of my skills as well as keep an updated blog. It is a personal website that will allow you to know a little bit more about me.

The insights on this website reflect my own thoughts. Hopefully some of my posts keep you entertained.

A little bit of History

I currently live in Manchester but originally come from Kent (but born in Australia). The reason that I moved away from Kent was to experience a new city and going to university gave me the best possible opportunity to do so. I have never regretted moving to Manchester and during my time at university here I have met a large number of good friends to add to those I have at home.

Social Life

I love all things sporty, especially football and yes I am a Southern Red! I also enjoy skiing which is why I regularly visit ChillFactore.

I also enjoy going out with friends and meeting new people. I enjoy eating out at the number of restaurants around Manchester.

I have a passion for writing among other things and hopefully this website will show this.

Work Life

You may or may not be aware that I am the Operations Director at Grip Media Ltd. Not long after graduating from University, I joined a fellow Manchester graduate, Owen Burek, in his business…

Grip Media is essentially a student marketing firm centred around 3 main websites/products. They are as follows:

  • SaveTheStudent.org – The UKs number one student money site. It offers student discounts and money advice on a national scale.
  • StudentMap.co.uk – A local student directory showing students the most student friendly places in their local city.
  • University Face Off – A completely revolutionary Facebook competition aimed at ranking UK universities on a social scale.

I am also involved in a number of other projects and my passions include SEO, Social Media, Digital Marketing, Managing people, Writing Copy & adding structure plus much more.


Thank you very much for taking your time to read this page and…

I hope that you enjoy my site, Jake Butler.
