Sharon has recently joined Charity People to manage our Corporate Partnerships and Business Development portfolio. She has an extensive background in fundraising having worked in the charity sector for over 20 years in a variety of roles including community, corporate and head of fundraising.
Previous to that, Sharon worked in the recruitment sector for the mobile and telecommunications industry working with software and development engineers.
Passionate about the charity sector, Sharon is thrilled to be able to continue supporting fundraisers and charities at Charity People and believes in building long-term relationships.
She recently passed her CioF Diploma in Fundraising which she studied during the pandemic, a very challenging time. She is a volunteer mentor to students who are looking to move into the charity sector by offering support and advise.
She loves a good read particular thriller novels, cooking (favourite is Thai) and running. She is also a big advocate of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
