Global Operations Manager
James is passionate about reducing social inequality and supporting disadvantaged children and young people.
Prior to joining the Youth Career Initiative in early 2017, some of James’ previous positions included working as the CEO of Camara Education in Zambia, the Communications and Fundraising Manager of Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation in Vietnam, and as a monitoring and evaluation consultant for Tackle Africa in Uganda, and Alive and Kicking in Zambia. He has a broad skill-set with experience in capacity building, operations, partnership development, communications, fundraising, and impact evaluation.
