Judith worked at City Gateway, an East London Charity and Alternative Provision Free School that offers training for young people and women, starts social enterprises to serve the local community and builds partnerships with a wide range of firms and community organisations to help people into employment. Judith joined City Gateway in 2010 as Personal Assistant to the CEO, moving roles to Senior Executive Administrator in 2013 where she led a team of Personal and Executive Assistants, as well as supporting the Senior Executive Team and Governance. As part of her time at City Gateway, Judith supported the CEO and Senior Executive Team through the Ladder for London Campaign in conjunction with the Evening Standard newspaper, the goal of which was to create 1000 new apprenticeship placements.

Judith has a passion for languages, in which she obtained a BA degree from Queen’s University of Belfast. Her love of languages and further studies in European Business Administration led her to work in Spain for 10 years as Personal Assistant to the International Director of an NGO, World Horizons International.
