Senior Consultant

Most recently she spent twelve years at Oxfam, where she managed the Supporter Relationship Management team, responsible for the Database Analysis and Selections functions, and the Acquisition team. Whilst working in Fundraising, Catherine’s natural tendency was to analyse and use data and evidence to support decision-making. As a member of management teams in Oxfam, Catherine was responsible for understanding the findings of Staff Engagement surveys as they related to her own team and wider Division, and found they were a valuable source of impartial evidence of how staff were feeling at work, and helped to underpin discussions about where to focus effort and what strategies might improve staff engagement. Catherine has a BA Hons in Modern Languages from Oxford University.
