Kira O.

United Kingdom

Summary

I believe that true change starts with community action, personal drive, and the mobility of others around me. I have professional experience in the community development sector specifically promoting and developing social sustainability and community resilience through community engagement and capacity building programs within Australia, India, Nepal and Bangladesh. I have extensive experience working alongside marginalised and vulnerable communities in key industry areas, including child protection, mental and other primary health, shelter and the built environment, and urban sustainability and environment. I have managed projects overseas, led high-performing teams of professionals and experts, and consistently found results in the projects and initiatives that I have worked closely within. I am solutions focused and creative in my professional approach. Community centred and area focused, I strive to place people at the core of any process and believe every community has the skills, knowledge, and capacity to drive their own change and increase their resilience. I have recently relocated to London and am looking for a position that strengthens my existing skills, and challenges and develops new professional skills. I’d love to connect and hear how I can contribute to your organisation.
