About me

I previously worked in the UK Civil Service, and am now based in Brussels where I work in humanitarian aid for the European Commission.   

My previous career focus was on human rights, first on business and human rights, and then on protection of human rights defenders.  I'd be really keen to support charities working in these areas.

I am currently a trustee of a refugee rights charity, and I am keen to support another charity working in the field of human rights internationally.  As well as skills in organisational management and policy development, I can help particularly with advocacy at the UK and EU level.  I'd also be interested in playing a bit more of a role on fundraising with an organisation.

What am I looking for

I work for the European Commission on humanitarian aid policy, and the emergency response to COVID-19. I previously worked on business and human rights, and then protection of human rights defenders.

I am currently a trustee of a refugee rights charity, and I am keen to support another charity working in the field of human rights internationally.  As well as skills in organisational management and policy development, I can help particularly with advocacy at the UK and EU level.  I'd also be interested in playing a bit more of a role on fundraising with an organisation.
