My work at the Institute involves providing dynamic and nuanced support to colleagues on several internal and external projects to ensure the continued development and smooth running of the organisation.
I am relatively new to the Institute, having joined in October 2021, and I am exploring how the organisation’s values can be woven into my day-to-day life as Operations Manager and People Coordinator. Since joining, I have had my first taste of the world of Group Relations, a cornerstone of the Institute’s work, and have been part of the Leicester Conference staff team in 2022 and 2023. I also recently joined the Management and Administrative Team of the Belgirate conference, a meeting for Group Relations practitioners.
I have also undertaken a key role in the Institute’s Environment Group, shaping our sustainability practices operationally and working collaboratively with a smaller sub-group to attain ISO accreditation for environmental management. No two days are the same here at the Tavistock Institute, and my passion for problem-solving and organisation help in navigating this path (along with encouragement from my four-legged companion, Cwtch the Cockapoo, who often frequents the office sofa).
