I am the Volunteer Network Co-ordinator for The Jurassic Coast Trust with responsibility for recruiting and placing volunteers into a wide range of opportunities offered by our partners. All the work experience is aimed at building skills and enhancing the careers of our volunteers, whilst making a real contribution to the work of Jurassic Coast organisations.
My background is in managing non-profit organisations and capacity building emerging organisations. I have always worked alongside volunteers and often had responsibility for their placements and welfare. After graduating in Development Studies I worked for the volunteer organisation Project Trust, the Rainforest Foundation, Girlguiding UK and the Play Association Tower Hamlets. Having helped to organise many small and large scale events I always enjoy working with a wide range of people that get involved.
