Why did you pick to work at PCA?

After finishing university, I knew I wanted to work in public affairs and policy. When I saw this job advertised, I knew it was perfect. My family has worked for the NHS for the whole of my life, so I hear all the amazing stories they have when they come home, and how they have helped people. I felt passionate about doing the same. This is why I am so excited about this job & the impact I can have on people’s lives.

What are your hobbies and interests ?

In my free time I love to spend time with my family and friends, particularly my grandparents! I also love a good girl’s night or weekends away. My favourite food is cheese, so I think nothing beats sitting in the house watching a good film with cheese and crackers!
