  • Connecting those external to Liberate, including but not limited to donors, suppliers, government, the media and the public (“the Customer”), with those internal to the Charity, such as Members, Officers, beneficiaries, employees and volunteers; and,
  • Finding ways to make the Customer’s interactions with Liberate as lively, creative and engaging as possible by meeting the Customer’s needs and exceeding their expectations.

Liberate is delighted to welcome Paddy to the senior management team.

She was Durrell’s Events and Corporate Social Responsibility Manager until the end of 2016.

Prior to working in the Third Sector, Paddy was a headhunter, a career that took her all the way round the world and built her strong interpersonal skills and ability to understand what a client needs in order to deliver on it. She returned to Jersey, her birthplace, in 2014 after 28 years of travelling the globe.

Paddy also has experience of working to support and address minority and visible minority issues. She was the Chair of the Upper North Island committee of Women on Boards in New Zealand, a member of the GABA (Gay Auckland Business Association) committee, and Fund Raising Director for Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in Australia. Paddy has been working for Liberate as a volunteer for over two years and was one of its founding committee members.
