In October 2017, I returned to the Royal Meteorological Society in a new role as Head of Partnerships, having previously joined the Society in January 2016 on a 1-year contract to cover maternity leave as Public Engagement Programme Manager. 

In the Partnerships role, my main responsibilties include:

  • build and maintain positive relationships with our corporate members, partners, contract managers, grant officers, corporate and trust donors
  • identify new areas and organisations we can collaborate with to support our educational and outreach projects and other strategic aims of the Society
  • create opportunities, develop, negotiate and project manage collaborative projects and bids for funding in line with the Society’s Strategic Plan
  • source funding opportunities and develop fundraising applications, followed by overseeing their submission and outcome
  • lead the content of our dedicated jobs board for jobs in meteorology and related fields (jobs.rmets.org)
  • from time-to-time, I also help with other projects, including events, conferences and digital projects to support other Society staff members. 

My previous role as Public Engagement Programme Managed involved engaging with our members and all those who are involved and passionate about weather and climate, including students, professional meteorologists, academics and amateur enthusiasts, as well as the wider public, leading our communications and outreach programme. 

My interest in meteorology spans back to an early age, watching television weather forecasts and following extreme weather stories in the media. Prior to going to university, my initial ambition was to become a broadcast meteorologist, however work experience with the Met Office and at RNAS Culdrose broadened my view of the role of the meteorologist.

In 2011, I enrolled on the BSc programme in Climate Science at the University of East Anglia. Shortly after graduation in July 2014, I joined Weatherquest as an Operational Meteorologist, writing weather forecasts for the media, including the Times Newspaper, and providing forecasts to the agricultural industry.
