Helen has spent over 20 years working in the development sector, in both field and head office roles across Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe. After qualifying as a chartered accountant in the UK, Helen began her travels overseas: working first for a German construction company as company accountant, then becoming a VSO volunteer in Bhutan; this was the beginning of her work in development. Her roles gradually moved away from finance towards organizational development and country management. Helen joined the Humentum (then Mango) register in 2004 and had used Humentum tools and training approaches in many roles, so she was thrilled to join the Humentum staff in 2015. As Humentum’s learning and development manager, she focuses on ensuring quality and promoting a culture of continual learning across Humentum’s services. She also coordinates our approach to working with associates, and she enjoys the cross-team collaboration and working which comes with the role.
