I like to think I’m an unusual blend of being good with numbers and good with words, too. What I’m really interested in is making sure information – whether it’s words or numbers – is set out in a way that’s easy to understand.
I am Rocket Science’s newest member of staff, having joined on 17 November 2014. My background has been developing and designing £100m+ funding programmes for the Big Lottery Fund (BLF). These programmes focused on issues such as community regeneration, reaching the hardest to reach and tackling disadvantage.
The areas that I’m most interested in are policy analysis; data analysis; working in partnership; design of / consultation on strategic level funding programmes; and making sure these funding programmes work in practice.
Outside of work, I’m a Trustee at the Toby Henderson Trust, a Northumberland charity for children with autism.
