Information about our recruitment process


Meet the team: Charlotte Mathysse

Hi, my name is Charlotte and I started working as a caseworker in the Changes team at the Women’s Centre at the end of September.

Before starting at NWC I worked in the Migrant sector, predominantly supporting people in immigration detention centres, gathering medical evidence for people’s asylum cases and working to shut the centres down. I’ve also worked for a legal charity helping people to get bail from detention centres, for a women’s refuge and for the Kenyan Red Cross.

I’ve just moved up to Nottingham from London, so am enjoying getting to know the city. Outside of work you’ll find me walking in the Peak District, going to gigs and playing the bass (badly!).
