Co-opted Governor

Committees: Curriculum & Progress

I have a leadership role in a fast-growing youth employment charity called Generation – an organisation designing and delivering targeted, in-person skills training programmes for young people facing barriers to employment. I have helped the organisation launch new programmes in cloud computing and the retail sector, whilst securing funding to support the organisation to grow into new regions.

Prior to this and positions in other charities and social enterprises in London in the housing and career coaching sectors, I was a management consultant for McKinsey & Company primarily focused on commercial and strategic work for major NHS hospitals trying to reconfigure and redesign their models of care. However, during this time I also touched on the travel, nuclear, defence, careers education, and telecoms sectors across a variety of functions.

I have a degree in economics from Cambridge and before entering the world of work, spent time volunteering at a homeless shelter in Hitchin, for FoodCycle – the food recycling charity, and on farming projects with rural communities in Ecuador.

Through my work I am driven by making the world a better place, tackling inequality and ensuring everyone has access to the opportunities they deserve in work and education.

Outside of work I can be seen swimming, running, and cycling (sometimes combined into triathlons) playing hockey, and practising my Spanish.
