Joining Leeds 2023 as a Fundraising Officer, Erin brings with her a strong understanding of the Leeds third sector as well as fundraising and philanthropy development experience.
After graduating from the University of Birmingham with a degree in Political Science, Erin began working as a Grants Administrator at Leeds Community Foundation where she gained a strong understanding of the Leeds third sector landscape. She then took the role of Development Officer at the Foundation where she worked with business, public, trust and foundation and individual donors to support their philanthropy and benefit communities across Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield. Erin was promoted to Senior Development Officer and took the lead on a number of donor relationships.
In 2020/21 Erin completed the Beyond Suffrage trustee training programme for young women from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. She has worked in the third sector for nearly four years and hopes that by being a trustee she will be able to use her skills and experience to support an organisation whilst gaining a new insight into the way the sector operates.
