Jess has joined RSN to project manage the refurbishment of 60–62 Harlesden High Street, an old bank building in the centre of Harlesden that will become RSN's new headquarters and a social impact hub to serve the local community. (Find out more about the building here).
Prior to joining RSN in March 2020, Jess worked for a Christian publishing house, specialising in the project management of complex colour titles and commissioning genre fiction for the general market. Alongside this Jess was a mentor with Thrive, an Oxford-based charity supporting teenagers from disadvantaged areas, and is passionate about the impact charities can have through one to one work. Jess is particularly excited about being part of creating a welcoming space that the young refugees RSN works with will feel is their own, and which will help facilitate RSN's work.
