Rachel Waterman – Trustee since 2015

With five years’ experience in retail management, eight years at the Department of Health, four years working for London 2012 and four years as a Head of Volunteering in the not-for-profit sector, Rachel Waterman’s career history might look varied but it actually has a very strong ‘people engagement’ strand running through it.  Rachel is currently Director of Operations for LGBT Foundation, an impactful charity which supports LGBT communities across the North-West and nationwide.  LGBT Foundation is supported by 400 volunteers and as a self-confessed ‘volunteering geek’ Rachel uses her previous experience to ensure that, regardless of whether a person is volunteering for an event or as a counsellor, they get the best possible experience from their volunteering and their contribution to delivering the work of the charity is understood and recognised.
