What’s my background?
I studied English Literature at Sheffield University but spent most of my time as Volunteering and Charity Coordinator for SingSoc working to inspire local school children through music and supporting the UK’s only voice-use charity “The Lary Project”. This experience led me to run for election as Activities Officer at Sheffield Students’ Union where I gained a passion for equality and liberation after working closely with “Disabled Students’ Committee”. I then spent a couple of months walking 1200km around Japan and another few working as an au pair.
At Birmingham’s John Taylor Hospice, while working in HR, Fundraising and Facilities, I conducted research into support for LGBT staff members at work and joined a Hospice UK working group developing an equalities training package for the sector. During this time I also founded a research campaign on sexism in the third sector with colleagues I’d met via the Charityworks Graduate Scheme (look out for our report @Is3rdSectSexist!)
I’ve now returned to my beloved Sheffield to experience the joys of #TeamGC
What do I do at Gradconsult?
As a Project Consultant I support my colleagues however I can with their wonderful work and play my part in solving problems for our clients.
