As someone who has always been passionate about education and the development of young people, and as a former trustee at nurtureuk, I am really excited to be appointed as the CEO.
Previously, I was the Deputy Chief Executive for youth social action charity City Year UK. At City Year UK, I led all of the charity’s external facing activities including school sales, recruitment, partnerships, public affairs, communications and development. My background in marketing and communications spans multiple not-for-profit and commercial sectors and I have had the opportunity to put that passion into practice in a variety of roles within the education sector; from teaching young children to marketing to students and mentoring graduates on their career aspirations. The team and I look forward to reaching more beneficeries and working with education professionals, partners, parents and members to drive our mission forward in 2021.
