Ellen joined the School of International Futures as a project manager and researcher in June 2017.
She started her career at PwC, spending ten years delivering risk-based internal audit services for Local Government clients, developing PwC’s internal audit methodology, and rolling out a comprehensive training programme for 6,000 partners and staff. A conservation volunteering holiday in 2012 led to a change of career direction, and after gaining a year of on-the-ground conservation experience she completed a MSc in Conservation Science at Imperial College London.
Since then Ellen has worked as a researcher and data analyst, contributing towards both a UNEP report assessing the state of biodiversity in Latin America and the Caribbean, and the 2016 WWF Living Planet Report. In April 2016 she joined the On Purpose leadership in social enterprise programme, during which she performed project management roles for three London based social enterprises over 12 months.
Shortly after completion of the On Purpose programme in April 2017, the UK general election was announced, and Ellen took on the coordination of an audit of the general election manifestos of the main parties for the UK chapter of Academics Stand Against Poverty, utilising the expertise of subject matter specialists to assess how each party’s policies would impact British society.
