Karen Tyrell

I have worked in Executive level roles in the charity sector for over ten years. I am a warm, pragmatic and friendly person who sets high standards, has clear strategic vision and is a straight talker. I’m an innovative and solution oriented leader with 25 years experience in the charity sector, having started out as a volunteer, and then a front line worker. 

My previous role was Executive Director of External Affairs at Addaction. My new role at Humankind gives me scope to support a wider range of corporate services. 

 People at Humankind are passionate about what they do and really want to continually improve things, both in services and in central functions. I enjoy using my skills, knowledge and experience to deliver Humankind’s strategic vision. It’s a real pleasure to work with colleagues from across the organisation who want to make a real difference to people’s lives.
