Meet the team

Gabby-Project Coordinator

How long have you been with The Network?

I started in 2018 as Project Coordinator, but I’d volunteered for The Network before then.

Why did I join The Network?

I am very passionate about the difference that a person-centred approach can have for people, especially at tricky times of transition from school to early adulthood.

I also really care about levelling the playing field and removing the systemic barriers that young people face in the community, so I love having a job where I can do something about that, all whilst being led by the young people we support. 

What does your job entail?

I provide one-one person centred support, to help young people to take the steps they need to get where they want to get, at their pace. I also like to think I’m pretty good at the careers-y stuff too like CV writing, and interview prep. 

As Project Coordinator, I’m also responsible for coordinating the day to day of The Network, whilst reporting to our fabulous Trustees.

I also plan out our projects and strategies, but not on my own because we’re youth led!

That means listening to our young people and running focus groups to identify what they feel we should be doing next to make Lincoln a better place for 16-24 year olds and their careers. I write up projects, coordinate and train volunteers, draft bids and do all the other  paperwork and the likes. 

I also am the point of contact for any of you lovely local organisations and employers out there who might want to partner up with us, or find out more about how we could work together, so give me a shout if you want a chat and coffee to see how we could make this happen: gabby@networklincoln.co.uk

Georgia-Careers Mentor and Project Officer

How long have you been with The Network?

I started in February 2022!

Why did I join The Network?

I wanted to be part of the team at The Network because I understand how important the work they do is! The one-to-one person-centered support that they offer is so important for young people who might be feeling lost or unsupported without the structure of a workplace or education.

What does your job entail?

My role involves working one-to-one with people, either remotely or in person, to collaboratively figure out the steps they could take to help them get where they want to be.

I’m a practicing artist, poet, writer and TEDx speaker, with a love of nature, so I also run workshops on creative career routes, to build all the tools people need to realise their talents.  I also run some other rather awesome workshops and group sessions, so get in touch to find out more 🙂
