As part of my work, I am required to communicate the passion and commitment of our staff to existing and potential funders. This is the easiest part of my job as the organisation’s passion for our work is evident in the actions and successes of our staff and service users.
Gareth’s role at The Wallich includes; managing the tendering process for new contracts, co-ordinating applications for statutory funding, overseeing the implementation of infrastructure projects and implementation of the charity’s quality assurances systems.
Originally from Stoke-on-Trent, Gareth’s passion for Wales began in Aberystwyth where he studied, first Physics and then Environmental Geology and Geography. While at Aberytswyth University, he founded the student radio station and played an active part in student media and politics.
On returning to Stoke, he got a job with the local BBC radio station, before moving to Birmingham to work on regional radio as a community producer. He moved back to Wales to study communications before starting his vibrant career with The Wallich in 2005.
