Alison Durkin, Head of Human Capital, Promethean
Alison studied a degree in Social Policy at Manchester University and after her degree moved to London where she worked in HR for various public sector eduction related bodies. Having worked in London for several years, Alison felt it was time to return north and now works at Promethean as Head of Human Capital.
Having become a board member in January 2011, Alison has been working with the Volunteering Manager to organise volunteers for the Youth Zone.
“Being involved in the Youth Zone is important to me as it not only provides a safe fun environment for the young people of Blackburn but also provides opportunities for them to explore areas of future interest. It’s great to be part of something that literally affects 1000’s of people’s lives. It’s win win all round as employers of the area will be able to tap into this young talent which in turn will help to regenerate Blackburn.”
