I’m Jenny, the Operations Manager and a Director at Babbasa. I’ve been here almost from the beginning, and have watched Babbasa grow from strength to strength.
My key role relates to assurance. I make sure we’re meeting our targets, managing risks and delivering our programmes to the highest possible standard. I’m a critical thinker that listens to ideas, looks at the big picture and asks the challenging questions! In my role, I also review budgets, run the payroll, approve expenses, write management reports and generally look after the Babbasa team. I think the team would describe me as loyal, flexible and approachable!
I love working at Babbasa for so many reasons. No two days are ever the same. As Babbasa has grown, I’ve had the opportunity to turn my hand to most things. The working environment is honest, encouraging and empowering and these values truly translate into the work we do with our young people. The highlight of working here is experiencing what the team manages to achieve with very limited resources. We aim high and always manage to reach our goals.
My advice to young people is – don’t compare yourself to others and judge yourself so harshly. There are many ways to live your life and to achieve your goals. Just focus on being you.
We believe Bristol’s most marginalised deserve access to support at their own pace; have their voices heard; and have access to real work opportunities.
