Student Development Manager
Ben grew up in the North East of England and took A-Levels in Physics, Maths and Computing. Through the voluntary youthwork he led in his spare time, he realised that he enjoyed working with people, understanding their life decisions and seeing how they develop skills, experience, knowledge and character through participating in activities. He chose an arts route and studied a BA Religion and Theological Studies at Cardiff University, graduating in 2004.
Following graduation, Ben worked as a youthworker based within a secondary school. Ben started working at City in January 2009 as Community Volunteering Officer. He is now the Student Development Manager, overseeing the City Buddies, Community Volunteering and Professional Mentoring functions within Careers, Student Development and Outreach.
