Lorna is the dedicated support for the Talent Team, helping to co-ordinate the Charity Next programme as well as our Recruitment and Mentoring services. She is the Lead for Talent Insights: a scheme that allows 3-5 days to be spent in another sector, shadowing a peer or learning how another organisation tackles particular challenges. As such she identifies the ideal host for candidates seeking a short insight into another sector. Lorna is passionate about Inclusion and Diversity, and is advising on the WIG D&I Network programme of events this year. She graduated in 2016 from the University of Greenwich, having read History and Politics.
