Coming to work at Pears Foundation has been better than I ever imagined. Every day I meet wonderful people who are not only working quietly in their own corner, but who are also actively collaborating with like-minded organisations to see wider change and growth.
Ellie joined Pears Foundation as Administrator in 2022, providing support for the Foundation’s administration including making sure all our payments are made. Ellie also oversees the daily operations of the Pears Hub and has helped develop it into a lively and well-used space for Pears partners to work, meet and learn.
Ellie moved to Pears Foundation after working as an Education Welfare Officer where she saw first-hand the difference that well-targeted support can make to struggling families. She studied International Development at Portsmouth University where she was involved in volunteering and growing international community including an internship in Senegal with health rights NGO Enda Santé.
