What I do: I am the Project Manager for the Technical Assistance to Strengthen Capabilities project and am also responsible for managing various projects within the consultancy arm of the organisation. My role is to ensure that our teams deliver projects according to time, scope, budget, risk and quality.
Previous experience: I have worked for private and public organisations specialising in international development, asylum rights and social protection.
