My name is Yvonne and I have worked at Nottingham Women’s Centre for three years as the Office and Finance Manager.
It is a varied role and no two days are the same. One day I could be engrossed in budgets and general finance work, then the next day I could be sorting out the boiler pressure!
I work with a great bunch of women who are all dedicated to what they do and how they can offer the maximum amount of support to the women who use the centre.
All of the staff at the centre get stuck in and the general feeling is one of support, there is always someone that will muck in to help. On that point, may I take this opportunity to thank all the staff who have helped with the reception refurbishment. We couldn’t have done it without you.
It can be quite manic at times in my role but I do enjoy working here, I just wish I had six pairs of hands at times!
Hi, my name is Lisa and I have recently started at Nottingham Women’s Centre as the Representation and Policy Officer. This is part of an exciting new project called Help through Crisis which is aimed at making a difference in women’s lives through providing welfare rights advice and working in partnership with other charities. My role is to gather evidence about the needs and difficulties that women are facing and to use this to press for changes that will improve women’s lives.
I first came to the Centre over a year ago as a volunteer in our amazing Library so I knew that it would be a brilliant place to work. Everyone here is passionate about supporting women and the environment is friendly and welcoming. You might see me at events collecting information or if you attend any of our focus groups over the coming months. I can’t wait to see what comes out of the research and to start demanding positive change for women.
