Organisational Development Lead
I joined Offploy in October 2018 and originally took on a part time role of ‘Marketing Assistant’. By November 2018 I had moved to full time employment with Offploy and my job expanded to include general processing of Offploy’s overall duties and creating training processes for both the administrative and marketing sides of my role. Now I have a focus on operations within which I develop systems which will help Offploy to grow in a sustainable and autonomous way.
I am a Newcastle University graduate with a degree in German and Mandarin. Whilst undertaking my degree I spent a year abroad in Chengdu, China where I improved my language skills and also experienced my fair share of culture shock. My time in China made me appreciate how privileged we are on the whole in the U.K. and made me realise that I wanted to pursue a career where I could make people’s lives easier, even just a little bit. This is why Offploy’s social impact is incredibly inspiring to me and it is one of the main reasons I wanted to work here. My role has changed a lot in a short period of time and I am grateful to Offploy for enabling me to not only gain valuable experience whilst being challenged and developing my skills but also help people at the same time.
