Quality & Performance Team Leader - Coleraine

I work for the gambling awareness charity GamCare where I manage a team of trainers across Northern Ireland and the north of England. A former teacher, I lived and worked for 10 years in the Middle East. Before joining GamCare I worked for FareShare, where I coordinated a project in Northern Ireland which enabled local schools, community groups and charities to feed vulnerable people. I am passionate about working within local communities to produce coordinated efforts that really make a difference.
