I joined the University in 2015 as a Graduate Management Trainee, and have since held posts in IT Services, the College of Arts and Law, External Relations, Birmingham Health Partners (BHP) working on behalf of the College of Medical and Dental Sciences, and as the Project Manager of the central Birmingham Professional programme.
More recently I was part of the Development and Alumni Relations Office (DARO), first as a fundraiser and then as Staff Engagement Officer working on a wide variety of student support, research and engagement projects culminating in both the launch of Birmingham In Action, the University of Birmingham’s fundraising and volunteering campaign, and the very first University of Birmingham Staff Volunteering Allowance - both sector leading initiatives aiming to develop charitable giving in all its forms and increase the impact of philanthropy across Birmingham’s community.
I joined CoSS during lockdown(!) in May 2020, as the Engagement Officer for the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtue within the School of Education, in a newly created post intended to support and public and policy engagement.
As a POLSIS alum, I am delighted to back in CoSS, and as a previous Birmingham Professional PM I am excited to continue helping curate the very best programme of activity for colleagues across the school and college!
