- Board of Trustees
Sophie moved to Peterborough in 2014 and has been looking for a volunteering opportunity to bring her new HR career in line with her passion for green living ever since! She joined The Green Backyard in January 2020 as the HR trustee. Securing her CIPD Associate qualification in 2017, Sophie has retrained into HR having previously worked with university researchers and innovative start ups developing new green products and services, in particular accessing EU/UK funding, for example at the Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP). Sophie is looking forward to building relationships with the other board members, staff and volunteers to help GBY achieve its work to promote sustainable lifestyles and raise awareness of environmental issues.
