Director of HR
With over 20 years’ experience in Human Resources in the Retail and Service sectors, it felt the right time in my career to move into the not for profit sector, and to a Charity that lives and breathes its own values in everything that it does. I have been so impressed with the integrity and selfless focus of our colleagues; it makes me really proud to be part of the team.
