I have worked in the fields of youth work and community development for almost 8 years, managing local, regional and national events and projects.
For several years I was the Project Manager for the largest volunteer programme in Europe.
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Youth and Community Work, as well as BSc Hons Degree in Creative Business.
Prior to commencing my studies in youth work, I worked in event management for music and production companies, organising and coordinating large scale events.
In previous years, my experience has seen me manage a large team and disability provision, undertaking extensive autism training and a great deal of involvement with young offenders and disaffected young people.
I am qualified mentor and spent several years volunteer mentoring hard-to-reach young people, alongside paid positions.
Over the last 3 years I have been working in youth voice and participation, supporting young people to have a voice locally, regionally and nationally.
