I began working for Common Purpose in 2011, in the role of PA to the CEO, and as lead administrator for Cork and Dublin. After some time out in 2015, I returned to Common Purpose to take up the role of Programme Coordinator, working on the youth, third level and emerging leaders programmes, as well as supporting the Focus senior leaders programme. On completion of my studies, I worked in various accounts payable and receivable roles in Cork city before travelling to Australia on a working holiday in 2008. I worked in a temporary clerical role in the Central Statistics Office, for the Census of Agriculture when I returned from Australia, finishing my contract shortly before commencing work for CP. I really enjoy my role with Common Purpose, as it means I get to meet so many people from a diverse range of backgrounds - both professionally and culturally and hear their stories and experiences.
