I am incredibly lucky to lead a team of amazingly dedicated and professional people. I learn from them every day.

Mike Mansfield
Director of Communications and Fundraising

A typical day for me is ...

A lot of my day is filled with supporting the work of both teams that I sit on; Communications and Fundraising and the Senior Management Team. This brings a variety to the role.

I love, when I can, to meet or speak with our donors. They are the lifeblood of our organisation and the passion and interest that resonates in these conversations is really inspiring.

Certainly, no days are the same. It’s the variety of conversations, ideas, and people that makes my role so enjoyable.

My experience before coming to Jigsaw

I have been working in the overseas NGO sector prior to joining Jigsaw for many years and increasingly, this involved a good deal of international travel. So at that time, a search nearer to home led me to Jigsaw.

What keeps me coming to work

The cause. The vision. The stories from those we support. The successes. The wins. The donors who give. My team and their energy and professionalism and drive.

I am incredibly lucky to lead a team of amazingly dedicated and professional people. I learn from them every day. The energy and enthusiasm and drive for the better is hugely inspiring.
