Hannah first joined Collaborate in 2017, and is now the Director of Finance & Operations and serves on our Board. 

A varied background in ​​bookkeeping, teaching and recruitment have combined with her passion for social change to feed into her current role. Hannah tries to perform the practical and analytical requirements of her role with humanity and empathy. With colleagues at the forefront of her mind, Hannah considers the principles of parity, context (organisational and individual) and fairness as essential for creating a healthy workplace.

As a growing organisation, Hannah is focusing on how Collaborate can adapt to embrace the new experiences, skills and qualities across the team to better further our mission.

In their own words:

I could do the role that I do in any sort of organisation, but I choose to do it at Collaborate because of the team and the work we do. With the change that they are trying to make and the hope that they inspire in others, I am always challenged to be better and I love working in this genuine culture of learning.

I am most proud to have been part of the evolution of our recruitment practice. Thoughtfulness and collaboration across the team have sought to reach different people in our application processes and strived to create a more inclusive, fair approach that redresses inequalities. 

It has also been an absolute delight to get to know new team members and all that they can contribute to our organisation and culture.
