Head of Operations
Rachel has an exceptional history in supporting mission-led organisations in their ambition to grow and have a bigger impact. Having been the backbone of our organisation for many years Rachel now uses her experience to lead our operations and account management. She makes sure we’re on track with all the planning and delivery of our change programmes with a growing number of different organisations in an ever-widening range of sectors.
Having been a key member of our project teams in many of those programmes, and with experience of working closely with Buurtzorg for the last five years, especially as our lead in the Transforming Integrated Community Care project, she is also hands-on with several of our programmes.
Programme Design and Comms Lead
With years of strategic and delivery experience in a range of sectors, Ali’s always looking at the bigger picture and ensuring that our learning and development materials and programmes match our purpose and mission and add value for our clients and partners, and our team and associates.
Ali not only leads on the design and production of our learning and development programme but also makes sure we stay on brand. She also keeps us ‘social’ on all our media so that clients, partners and friends are kept up-to-date with our work.
Jade’s highly valued PA expertise across many sectors is what keeps us on topic, on time and in the right place! Jade manages our busy schedules, liaises with our clients and suppliers to ensure all the necessary paperwork and admin are in place and the bills are paid.
She makes sure we pay full attention to every necessary detail while keeping our admin as simple as possible – which, as a core principle of working in the Buurtzorg way, is so important to us!
