We’re delighted to welcome Julie Jenkins to the Learning Disability Wales team. We asked Julie to tell us about herself, and her new role as Admin Support Coordinator.
I joined Learning Disability Wales in July. I work alongside the team providing administrative support, helping run the office and leading on the ongoing development of our systems and processes to improve the way we work.
I have spent much of my working life in big corporate companies as a business/Insight analyst, however due to redundancy and some health problems 5 years ago, I started looking for work within the third sector. I was lucky enough to start work as a Communications Officer for Cartrefi Cymru Co-operative, a charity that supports people with a learning disability. When I saw the vacancy for Learning Disability Wales, I thought this would be a perfect move for me. I’m proud to become part of a team that is so dedicated to improving the lives of people with a learning disability.
I’m married with 1 grown up son. We have 2 Golden Retrievers (Fletcher and Rory) who take up much of my time. I love taking them to the beach or the countryside – they bring me so much joy!
I’m known to be very organised and quite technical with computers and software – I love building process maps and spreadsheets. I also love gardening, cooking, reading and music.
