Julie is the Chief Executive. She provides inspirational leadership and vision to the organisation and has responsibility for developing and delivering a strategy and operational plan to deliver this vision with the support of the trustees. She also ensures that Power2 is recognised as a high-profile champion of evidence-based educational programmes throughout the UK, driving impact and creating a sustainable platform for future growth and delivery.

Julie spent the first half of her career in the commercial sector, before moving to Save the Children where she was Head of the FAST (Families and Schools Together) programme. She spent the next part of her career working on social mobility, at the Sutton Trust and as CEO of Causeway Education. Her most recent role was as interim CEO of Build Africa, an international development charity. She is a Trustee of PRIME Commitment and of the John Schofield Trust, charities working to improve diversity in the legal and broadcast news professions.

I'm passionate about improving the life chances of children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, and Power2’s work is proven to make a real difference – it’s great to be helping to bring it to even more young people.
