Sustainability Research & Projects Coordinator
In 2013, I sought to change my career direction with a view to be a part of something meaningful and impactful. Having worked in sales and marketing roles for a number of years, I made a bold decision to revisit my studies, attending University as a (somewhat) mature student studying towards a BSc in Environmental Science at Cumbria University. Three brilliant years later, having explored every cragg, tarn and turnstyle in the Lake District, I returned to the Midlands having been fortunate enough to gain an academic scholarship from Warwick University to study towards an MSc in Environmental Bioscience.
My studies at both Warwick and Cumbria offered a range of unique opportunities and unparalleled experiences, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time studying the environmental issues associated with sustainable development, and climate change. My ambitious research projects in these subjects focused on creating transparent and resilient production systems; where I sought to develop solutions through the innovative application of new technologies.
Having gained considerable sustainable projects experience alongside companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, Precision Farming UK, Wildlife Trust, and Rupanco Environmental, I was looking to find an exciting and challenging role where I could support like-minded organisations and young people to make a real and lasting impact. As a Sustainability Research and Projects Coordinator with Change Agents UK I am tasked with developing sustainability research; building relationships with client partners; and delivering sustainability projects independently and in partnership with others. My current research efforts seek to promote youth action, engagement, and employment in sustainability.
As an outward-looking and forward-thinking organisation, we are always looking for new ideas and partners who share our core values. Get in touch with me or our team if you would like to know more about our sustainable projects and how we can support you in making a difference – we’d love to talk!
