I have worked on the NCS programme for two years in various roles from sessional worker, NCS Support Officer and now I’m a full time Recruitment officer. I love being a part of NCS because I find it extremely rewarding, seeing the young people develop in such a short space of time and creating memories of the experience of a life-time.
I have always been a lover of sports and healthy lifestyles, so I went to university to study BSc Health, Sports & Exercise Sciences, and I graduated with a 2:1. During my time at University, I studied the causes of Childhood Obesity in school age children. It became a passion of mine, and it gave me food for thought: that I wanted to work with young people. To help them achieve anything in life, to live healthily and to be happy.
Alongside working on NCS, I am also an Activities Coordinator for a boy with Downs Syndrome, and my main focus with him are health and fitness, and his social skills.
During my spare time, I am a hockey player, and also the Vice-Chair Person, for Newland First Ladies in Hull. I also love motorsport, and 2 years ago started working (seasonal) as a Public Relations Officer & Front of House for Richardson Racing on the British F4 & Ginetta Championships. I regularly go to the gym, I enjoy walking my dog, and I enjoy spending quality time with my family & friends.
My main role at Flying Futures is to recruit young people in schools and colleges, across the North Yorkshire Coast, for our NCS programme. I liaise with schools & colleges to arrange meetings, deliver assemblies, tutor groups & lunch-time stalls to increase the awareness of our unique NCS programme.
