Stuart started out in the sector in 2011 working for two charities focused on improving the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in the South West. Over the next five years he learned the impact that Fundraising has on a charity and the people they help. He then made the move from the coast and country to the city and started a successful career in recruitment. Stuart joined Charity People to match his skill set with his passion. He is now out Trusts, Foundations and Grants specialist and is not looking back.
Outside of Charity People, Stuart is an experienced classical singer, performing in concerts and competitions. You are likely to catch him on the Northern line listening to Alfie Boe and Jonas Kauffman.
Stuart is passionate about charity work and has helped out sporting charities such as Wooden Spoon and Restart Rugby. With a long history playing rugby, Stuart has seen the impact of sports and charities helping families and children. He's taken part in fundraising rugby matches for RNLI, Bolingey Barbarians, mixed services and many more.
Stuart truly went the extra mile - he grasped the issues surrounding my situation (long story!) and took them seriously. This included getting me through the door and, ultimately, forward to employment in the quickest time possible. I know how hard he worked to do this and he kept in constant touch throughout, so I really did feel I was kept informed. He's also great to chat to and his people skills are exemplary.
