Work history

About me

I have been involved in organisational governance and policy for 10 years, working with small and medium-sized organisations. I have been a trustee/governor of 4 different organisations. I am currently a Trainee Solicitor with a law firm based in East Anglia.

I am passionate about the local community and believe that charitable organisations have a hugely important role in our society. I am keen to use my skills and experience to help support these organisations. I have significant experience of organisational governance, organisational policy and risk management and project management.

I also have had experience writing and reviewing funding proposals and bids, as well as digital marketing strategies. As a Trainee Solicitor, I have an awareness of the legal and regulatory landscape, although am not legally qualified and cannot provide legal advice.

What am I looking for

I am keen to support an organisation at a strategic level either in a trustee or project based role.
