After graduating, I started out in photography before working in various roles including as an assistant bar manager and for a ticket service provider, where I worked at events around the country. My years doing this made me realise that I wanted to work with people in a more vocational role, so I then started working first as a residential worker and later a community support worker. After moving back to Nottingham I started volunteering at Space before being offered a position. I find working at space very rewarding and enjoy working in a way that encourages independence, social inclusion and decision making as well as teaching valuable life skills.
