Work history

About me

I’m a strong believer that we all have a role to play in shaping tomorrow’s society and I’m driven by enabling organisations to make a positive difference by protecting the planet and contributing to their communities. With over 7 years of leading and managing bespoke sustainability projects across the UK, I understand the challenges of delivering, monitoring and reporting the impact of long term initiatives which need to appeal to, and continuously engage with, different audiences. Across my career I have successfully worked  to motivate and influence hearts and minds, and convert people’s good will into action through effective communication.  I have created corporate employee volunteer schemes, a corporate charity and have direct experience of creating programmes at supporting vulnerable people have a more stable route into education or employment All of the community investment strategies I have led have relied, in some part, on the target audience understanding their place in a bigger picture. My experience has given me invaluable insight into the personal motivations, concerns and barriers that individuals, teams or groups have in committing to a project designed to change organisational behaviour,  and how to address these in all elements of programme implementation.  Additionally, I have a range of personal volunteer experiences which have shaped me and am now looking to effectively 'give back' in a skilled capacity

What am I looking for

I want to be a resource that is flexible and valuable and so am interested in hearing about roles where i can really make a difference - either by using my professional experiences, or through using my softer life skills.

I am drawn to supporting organisations whose focus is to improve an individual's with their wellbeing  - either physical, mental or financial.
