Paul Townsley

Chief Executive Officer

Professional Background & Relevant Experience

Starting life as a volunteer I have worked in caring services for the vast majority of my working life from front line practitioner, to manager to CEO. 

I always try to learn and improve my skills and have done community work, social work and management qualifications to help with this.

How I Came to Work at Humankind

I love the work that Humankind does and the challenges we help people with. At my interview I felt a connection with the people and that I was the right fit for the role and the organisation. I saw an organisation that I liked and where I felt I could add value.

I really enjoy the diversity and challenges of my role and being part of an organisation that helps people deliver really good services to our service users.

What I Enjoy About Working at Humankind

I am passionate about improving our services where they need improvement and creating new services that meet unmet needs.
