Paul grew up in Europe and Africa. Following successful completion of a Master’s degree in International Relations, Paul spent time living and working with an International Maritime NGO in Rotterdam and then to New Orleans. The first-hand experience of seeing charities and NGO’s deliver positive outcomes for people on the margins of society propelled Paul in to working with charities.
Paul has worked in international, national, regional charities with turnovers ranging from a few tens of thousands of pounds to those raising hundreds of millions of pounds per annum. Paul’s fundraising experience ranges from community and corporate activity through to major gift and statutory fundraising, including challenge events and Royal Gala functions. Paul has worked for Naomi House & Jacksplace since in 2014 and was appointed Head of Fundraising in 2015 and Director of Fundraising & Communications in 2018.
